Passion and Power With The New Trust

Drummer: Julia Lancer

Band:The New Trust

Julia Lancer's style and sound are key infectious elements of the Bay Area power trio, The New Trust. She puts her drive and force into every hit. This is a band with great stage presence, powered by their obvious passion for the music they play, something lacking in some live bands.

The New Trust are tight. At one point Julia's rack tom fell off the stand, but with impressive reflexes guitarist Sara Sanger swung around and repositioned the drum. If I haven't seen what happened, I wouldn't have had any idea anything had gone wrong. The New Trust are currently recording, but once they are back out on the road, they are a must-see.
