Trio Valore released the widely acclaimed album "Return of the Iron Monkey" in 2008. Now after a musical sabbatical, the guys are back having gained a new member, Manchester based Keyboard ace JUSTIN SHEARN (Sam Gray). The band reformed after they've been asked to play at Record Kicks 10th Anniversary at 100 club in London last November and since then the Trio went from strength to strength playing shows throughout 2013 and beginning of 2014. After such a great response it was only a matter of time before some new music was recorded. This EP is the heavily awaited result. With special guests such as Jan Van Duikeren and Jacko Peake (Paul Weller band and Push), Guido Nijs and Paolo Fuschi.
#LiarsAndCheaters kicks off with Crazy - the Trio's take on a Modern Club Classic, very much in the Style of a Booker T cover, an of the day pop smash, soaring organ and tasteful brass make this destined for clubs globally . Then the title tracks #LiarsandCheaters, a full on funk blaster, break beats galore and thunderous bass underpin some truly fantastic soloing, an instant club floor filler , written by the Trio and produced by the band and Gaz Vaughn Hadfield in Manchester. Spanish Blues is dedicated to the great Jon Lord who the Trio played with at a tribute to Ginger Baker in London. This was favorite of the keyboard legends and the Trio dedicate it to his memory, it was originally written by the great Graham Bond. And last but not least Back to the Reel - pushing the boat out with some studio experimentation the Trio are Joined by Louk Boudesteijn and Benjamin Herman to produce a quirky groover with shades of late era Miles Davis. Welcome back Trio Valore!
