Singer-songwriters Trent Larrabee and Jake DeSchuiteneer began collaborating around 2019. After playing in various groups and performing around New England for several years, Trent recruited Jake’s bass playing and vocal harmony to complete his 2021 solo album Billions of Musics. From there, the duo began performing regularly, playing more basements and bars. But soon enough they started writing songs together, and Slim Volume was born.
Through 2022, Trent and Jake became regulars at a local open mic, paying their dues and mixing originals in with their covers. There they caught the attention of guitarist Mike Morgan, who would quickly join the mix, adding his tasteful flavor of retro-soul and blues-inspired lead guitar to the Slim Volume sound. Jonny Lawrence joined soon after, rounding out the quartet with his restrained and expressive drumming and percussion.
Slim Volume launched in earnest as a full band in January of 2023, releasing a string of singles through the early months of the year, and landing some prominent local gigs—literally getting their name up in lights.
Slim Volume's music spans many genres, weaving a blend of sounds that evokes indie and classic rock, folk, and cosmic Americana. Dual lead vocalists Trent Larrabee (guitar) and Jake DeSchuiteneer (bass) combine close vocal harmonies with thought-provoking lyricism. Guitarist Mike Morgan's melodic and tasteful leads and Jon Lawrence's creative drumming round out the band's familiar but original sound. The New Hampshire four-piece writes much of their music collaboratively, creating songs that meld the members' eclectic musical influences.
We love having Slim Volume play in our taproom. The guys are a pleasure to work with and their music instantly livens up the space. Not only do they bring in their own crowd, but our regulars love them too. Their mix of originals and covers creates the perfect vibe.
