When: Thursday, July 9, 2009 6:00 - 9:00pm

Truman is a brother duo out of Nashville, TN. Combining a range of influences from Stevie Wonder to John Mayer; the brothers create a pop/rock soul/jazz sound that bmi.com calls "ear-tickling." I caught up with Chad Truman recently about what we can expect at the show.

Ben - lead vocals, guitar
Chad - lead voclas, piano

SLG: Can you tell us what is your most popular song?

CT: Our best crowd pleaser is "I Want You There," which is the song we played to open up for Kelly Clarkson last month. The most appealing thing about us is our songs: we don't worry about any bells and whistles; we just worry about writing good songs.

SLG: Kelly Clarkson! Oh, that must have been fun. Anything else on the horizon?

CT: Another great opportunity comes in September when we open up for Josh Kelley in Kansas city.

Ben and Chad Truman are sons to keyboardist Dan Truman of the award-winning country music group Diamond Rio. Since Truman’s formation in 2005, the duo has been wowing audiences of 13 to 13,000.

SLG: Tell us where you're from? What's your background?

CT: We were raised in Nashville, and we both went to BYU. And were now fully focused on music.

While attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, the band took first place in the university-wide Battle of the Bands competition two years in a row.

Truman has just finished and released their first CD, "Hold On to Love."
