Truth is Stranger than Fishin’

Truth is Stragner than Fishin'

Truth is Stranger than Fishin’ is the debut release from four time Grammy nominees Trout Fishing in America.

Brian Mansville of Nashville Scene writes,

“Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet-who take their name from a Richard Brautigan novel of the 1960s-sound more like a band than the guitar/bass songwriting duo they actually are. Their songs are quite tasty, coming as they do from the lighter end of the Texas folk-rock side of things, and the Houston duo reels in some choice covers as well-John Gorka’s ‘Prom Night in Pig Town’ and Nashvillian Dana Cooper’s ‘Lucky Guy,’ for instance. If the humorous songs don’t get you, the straight ones will.”

    When were first here in St Louis, MO? You played in the basement of Cicero’s. The ceiling was 5’11”. I saw you there and then MANY times at a place called Off Broadway.

    When was the LAST time you were here and the NEXT time you will be?

      Hi Rick,

      This is Susan from the Trout House. I will pass along your question to the guys. As for when they will be back, we’re not sure but we’re working on it! Stay tuned.
