After leaving Seattle's decidedly R&B-influenced Red Velvet Relief amidst label turmoil in 2000, Tron Carter lead-singer and guitarist Frank Morrison began writing new material in his home-built Seattle studio. Five years and more than one hundred songs later, he emerged with a new sound, the polar opposite of his keyboard-playing days in Red Velvet Relief. Instead of @The Doors and @Stevie Wonder, Morrison now found inspiration in @Faith No More, Gruntruck, @Queens of the Stone Age, and @Alice in Chains. Tron Carter was born, and fortunately for Morrison, some old friends were ready to lend a hand.
With former RVR members David Zager on guitar and David Brotherton on drums, Morrison entered the studio in 2005 to record the trio’s first released material since 2000. Their self-titled debut was crafted between Los Angeles-based Studio Wishbone (home to former Seattleites Brad Smith and Christopher Thorn of @Blind Melon fame) and Morrison’s Room with a View studios in Seattle.
Highlights of the release include the rockers “Antibody” and “Let Go,” the atmospheric “Wanderer,” and the infectious “Fate of the World.”
