"Less ego. More amigo." That's the mantra for the five members of Trout Steak Revival, a Denver-based string band who spend much of their waking (and sleeping) hours driving around the country playing music. To survive those long hours and time together, any musician will tell you it takes patience, honesty and really good friendship. And that's where Trout Steak Revival have an advantage, as many of them grew up together before moving out west to play music.

Spirit To The Sea is the latest album from the band; it came out in late 2017. But the band members are not sitting around on the success of that record. They've already recorded a handful of songs to put on a new release — coming soon to a record store near you. In fact, when Trout Steak Revival stopped into the Radio Heartland studio last week, they started the session with a brand-new song. "We are just trying to keep all the gears moving," mandolin player Steve Foltz says. "We just hit the studio last week and recorded five demo tracks. What we're trying to do is just continually release music in a way that makes sense for us."
