Trout Steak Revival formed in the summer of 2008 on the secret shores of a Colorado mountain lake. After singing songs and telling stories during days of rain, the five guys, some of whom are originally from the Midwest and East Coast, came away from the outing with a true mountain sound, inspired by their surroundings. Using bluegrass as a backbone, about half of the cuts on the quintet's self-titled album, which was recorded last summer in Conifer, are high-energy, foot-stomping numbers, like "So Many Roads" and a take on the traditional tune "Still Water." The other half, cuts like "Those Days" and "Eight O'Clock," have the relaxed feel of friends playing music around a campfire near a serene lake. On either end, the men of Trout Steak Revival make you feel like you're right there with them by that lake in the mountains.
