TRIUNE blends trip hop and indie slow jams creating the self described sound of ASTRAL R&B.
Lyrics and melody written and composed by Nahid Abunama-Elgadi. Bass, percussion, engineering and production by Josh Hey. Sax, clarinet, keys, horn arrangement and production by Sigmund Washington.
The band was created in 2019 after ten years of collaboration and jamming amongst the tirade. Nahid and Josh met the summer of 2005 while he was putting up flyers (at a bus stop in Amherst, MA) for a party he would be djing. “Sweat box” written in wavy letters all yellow and black caught Nahid’s eye hella quick. He handed her a flyer and they’ve been friends ever since. Sigmund and Josh’s worlds collided in 2006 while they both lived in Philadelphia, PA. There mutual love of records explored through multiple visits to Sound of Market record shop and beat making took their musical friendship to another level.
In 2015, Sigmund’s cult classic “All My Mistakes Recorded” was release on Paxico Records, with assistance from Josh working as the Art Director. Later in that same year, Nahid and Josh had created the tracks “SummerNights” and “Cold” and the tirade was being subconsciously brought together.
Fast forward to 2018 when all three were finally in the same place at the same time; Brooklyn, NYC, the foundation for creating music was established. Nahid’s melodies float over Josh’s moody beats and Sigmund’s notes intertwine throughout, creating a haunting, yet comforting room.
