NASHVILLE, TN – Sugar + The Hi-Lows will celebrate their self-titled debut on a U.S tour opening for Marc Broussard beginning January 27th in Atlanta between headlining dates in Los Angeles and Nashville, respectively.

Formed in 2011, the band is the songwriting duo of Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup who have co-written several songs over the past three years, some of which have been placed on TV shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Parenthood,” and “Private Practice,” to name a few.

A departure in sound from the moody, subdued tone of their previous collaborations, the album is a throw back to a bygone era of the 50s/60s and inspired by Motown, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations, the soundtrack of Trent’s childhood. In a recent interview with magazine Brite Revolution, Trent reflects, “It’s definitely the most fun I’ve ever had writing songs.” Read the full article here
