After touring with Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, Melody Trucks immersed herself in the increasingly rich and diverse music scene in Jacksonville, Florida. The Melody Trucks Band came together in early 2017 as she encountered each member within this extended musical family. Their individual styles and influences run the entire span of every music genre: rock, blues, jazz, funk, classical, country, thrash metal, and even world music. This has culminated in fresh and unique interpretations of iconic songs from the genre of Melody’s extended family.
Collectively, the members of our group have shared the stage with The Allman Brothers, Derek Trucks, Willie Nelson, Vaylor Trucks, Lee Boys, Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, Devon Allman, Duane Trucks, Bonnie Bramlett, Roosevelt Collier, John Popper, Bruce Katz, Ben Sparaco, JJ Grey and Mofro, and countless others.
The band’s 2019 debut album, Walking in Gratitude, comes from a line in their song “Fire Inside,” written by Brady Clampitt and Isaac Corbitt. The full-album features nine original songs recorded and mixed by Dave Murphy at Winterstone Sound and mastered by Peter Winter along with assistant engineer was Christian Manuel. The album was produced by Murphy and The Melody Trucks Band. Artwork designed by Jimmy Rector.
