Gig Information

Often referred to as the discovery act from Bluesfest 2019, there was no doubt in our minds but to bring The War and Treaty to New Zealand in 2020 to share their incredible talent with Americana, gospel and soul fans. It is hard to believe that this powerhouse duo has only just come into focus. While their back story is romantic and emotional, they have been paying music dues for a long time.

Having both been gifted with incredible voices, the couple also have a natural talent for storytelling through song. Michael Trotter’s back story tells of a shy, poverty-stricken childhood, eventual enlistment in the US Army and being shipped off to serve in the Iraq war in 2003. Trotter was not meant for fighting but had a gift for making music, which he nurtured with an abandoned piano while the American soldiers encamped in a Saddam Hussein palace. After the war, Michael pursued a career in music, which led him to meet Tanya, at a festival in 2010. They fell in love, made music, had a child and began their passionate journey together as The War and Treaty.

Having come from a musical theatre background and landing a role in ‘Sister Act 2’ singing a duet with Lauryn Hill in her early career, it is clear from their performance that Tanya is no stranger to the stage. The War and Treaty deliver live shows and records that make the hairs on the back of necks stand up. Their music and stories bring tears, goosebumps, beaming faces, united voices and rejoice!

Watch the powerful soul voices of married couple Michael Trotter and Tanya Trotter-Blount at Spark Arena's companion venue, the Tuning Fork.
