Editorial Reviews

Given their upbringing, it's no wonder the siblings in Trampled Under Foot have become one of the most buzzed-about blues bands. Singer-bassist Danielle Schnebelen, singer-guitarist Nick Schnebelen and drummer Kris Schnebelen lived and breathed the blues while growing up in Kansas City, a town known for its legendary scene.

"Our dad was in bar bands but he was also recognized as a great blues guitar player," says Nick in describing the influence his father, Bob, had on his music. "He'd take us to blues jams where we'd meet some real old school artists and hear a huge cross section of roots music." His father's love of poetry also made an impact. "It led to a more intellectual style of writing and tipped us off to some techniques that made our music more dynamic."

Nick started out in an East Coast band, while his brother and sister played in separate groups in Kansas City. Catching up over the phone, they unanimously decided the time was right to join forces. "We just decided to go for it," says Nick. Danielle learned to play bass and Nick moved back home; they christened the group Trampled Under Foot. "The bonds are stronger with family, says Kris. You're more familiar with each other, that's for sure."

After several heralded self-released albums, Trampled Under Foot debuts Badlands on Telarc, a division of Concord Music Group. On Badlands, the band worked again with producer Tony Braunagel at his Ultratone Studios in California. The drummer in the Phantom Blues Band, Braunagel plays some percussion on the album and recruited veteran keyboardist Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Taj Mahal) to play keys. Johnny Lee Schell, who also recorded the album, adds acoustic guitar to one track and Lisa Swedelund provides some additional backing vocals. John Porter mixed the final results at Independent Street Studios in New Orleans.

Well, I fear Mistral will accuse me of being paid off to review this disc, but I see his point, yes it must be easy to "pay" for reviews, but I am legit, I got the email from amazon, sampled the CD and really liked it, if it had not been for the email, I would never have heard of this band, sample radio here in central Indiana and tell me about all the crap you hear, I do really like this band, Danielle reminds me a lot of Lydia Pense of Cold Blood, the soul-rock-jazz horn band out of the Bay area in the 60's-70's, Nick and Chris, they trade off really well on playing and vocals, I am going to collect what is available of this band and look forward to the future, but what worries me is, the blues highway is littered with good bands that died because of little exposure to the mass of "music" listeners, died because it was their paycheck,They had to eat, pay bills, little money coming in, dead, I don't want that to happen to this talented trio.

I don`t usually write a review but I couldn`t be held back on this album. Buy it. It`s a Slam Dunk. From the first track, A Bad Bad Feeling, to the last track, This Is A Man`s Man`s Man`s World there`s not a bad track on this CD of 13. The brother`s Schnebelen and their power packed little sister,Danielle, bring it with heart and soul. Between Nick (lead guitar) and Danielle (Bass) you`re treated to excellent vocals and equally fine guitar performances. Danielle leaves the greatest impression with her emotionally soulful pipes but Nick`s not too far behind. Nick`s solo leads beg comparison to today`s best in the Blues. I love Susan Tedeschi and Danielle Schenbelen certainly keeps her company. Drummer Kris, "on pots and pans" keeps everything together in the boiler room and interspersed throughout is Mike Finnigan playing killer keyboard. I like the alternating between Danielle and Nick on the tracks. Like Slide? Down to the River played by Nick on Resonator will give you plenty of Mississippi mud. I just love You Never Really Loved Me and one of the very best covers of the James Brown classic, This Is A Man`s World sung with passion by Danielle. Reading the liner notes I saw Johnny Lee Schell`s name, who played acoustic guitar and recorded this great CD. I saw him more than 20 years ago along side Bonnie Raitt doing a superb two man/woman acoustic show. Bonnie knows quality. Trampled Under Foot has surrounded itself with a deeply talented group of musicians and technicians so the finished product is no surprise to me. This is the best blues album I`ve purchased in quite awhile.
If any of you have the privilege of catching TUF Live as I did in a small venue a couple of days ago you`re in for a treat.

The title of my review is based on the incredible first track of Trampled Under Foot's new album, Badlands. From the very start, it's apparent that TUF has a lot of mojo and style in their music. In addition to their incredible studio work, they also command an impressive stage presence at live shows. I was thrilled to see them last year and hope to catch them again this year...and that should be easy enough because they are on the road relentlessly. Luckily, I can easily wait because this rocking CD will be on rotation to keep my anticipation at acceptable levels. It has a little bit of everything for fans of Blues music...listen to the audio previews and you'll probably be hooked as I was. Don't miss out on Trampled!

Another solid album from a talented group. The addition of the keyboards adds a new dimension to their music without distracting from the solid blues-rock performance that they have been perfecting for the last few years. If you have not seen Trampled Under Foot live, you have missed a great experience.

One of the most impressive blues bands of our time, Trampled Under Foot deserves to be added to the archives of Blues in the US. I was thrilled to discover Danielle Schnebelen during a random search for certain blues songs on YouTube. Her voice is a perfect match for her and her brothers' songs, and their choice of covers (such as It's a Man's World) is impeccable. I hope there's more to come in the future from this excellent band!

A great deal for $5 - never heard of them before but liked the sample listening so thought, what the heck, $5 to try a new artist I'm not familiar with is almost no risk at all. Great sounding blues infused sounds but after a few songs I said "wait a minute, this sounds so familiar", then I realized the guy singing and the guitar playing sounded like something right out of a Robert Cray album. Right after I listened to this album, I play the "best of Robert Cray" and sure enough the similarities are uncanny, which is not a bad thing. The only real difference is that this album also features a female singer but the guitar riffs and the blues are unmistakable Robert Cray. I don't know who came first and I guess it's really not that important as long the music is really good, which it is. In fact, I highly recommend that you play this album and Robert Cray back to back to get your daily dose of the blues.
