“Love is the foundation of our new record and ‘Ain’t No Harmin’ Me’ reminds us that no matter what troubles are waiting around the corner…the power of love will pull us through,” Michael Trotter Jr. said. “We wrote this together as a personal testament to ourselves…we aren’t afraid to face the hard times knowing we have the other by our side. It felt like an awakening for us, and I hope fans can feel that same energy when they hear it.”

“Aint No Harmin’ Me” pulls back another layer of The War And Treaty’s maturing relationship found throughout the 10-song collection, as Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter share a sonic landscape that builds off “their rootsy vocals and chameleonic arrangements,” (Billboard). The War And Treaty dug deep into the lessons their love has laid bare, with more than 100 songs written over the last two years before completing LOVER’S GAME. The duo’s previously released BLANK PAGE EP offers an introduction to “their genre-crossing essence” (NPR).
On the heels of new music, The War And Treaty sit-down this weekend with Sunday TODAY (February 12th at 9a CT on NBC), where they take viewers inside the studio and highlight the importance of black culture in country music.
Founded in 2014 by the husband-and-wife duo Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter, The War And Treaty have emerged as one of the most electrifying new acts in American music. With a lionhearted sonic blend – both roaring with passion and tender to the touch, they “are making soul moves that are captivating everyone who sees them,” (Hits Magazine). Earning respect, they’ve gone on to appear as top-flight collaborators, and have been recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Americana Music Association as “2022 Duo/Group of the Year.” With more than 100 shows last year, the duo has dominated stages across the globe including North America, Europe, Italy, Australia, and Ireland, while headlining their own shows and opening for a diverse group of living legends: Al Green, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, John Legend, Lauren Daigle, and Van Morrison among them. “In context and talent, they are unlike any other act in music,” (The Tennessean) which has created vastly diverse tour opportunities across multiple genres. It was just announced that this summer, The War And Treaty will join Chris Stapleton on the All American Road Show Tour. But first, they will bring “their rootsy vocals and chameleonic arrangements” (Billboard) to more than 35-cities this spring on their own LOVER’S GAME TOUR, kicking off Mar. 19 in Oklahoma City, OK.
