About Trummors

Begun in 2010 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York, Trummors are a folk-rock duo formed by songwriter Anne Cunningham and longtime New York City musician David Lerner, best known to some for his years of work with Ted Leo & the Pharmacists. The two multi-instrumentalists focus on acoustic instrumentation, incorporating harmonium, fingerstyle guitar, and close-harmony dual vocals into their warm sound. Early on in the group's existence, Cunningham and Lerner moved from Brooklyn's bustle to the considerably calmer surroundings of Woodstock in upstate New York. Trummors' first album, Over and Around the Clove, was released in May of 2012 and reflected their recent change of scenery, with its lushly earthy songs and slightly psychedelic filter on a '70s pop sound. Cunningham and Lerner were joined on the recording by dobro player Marc Orleans and Chris Zaloom on pedal steel. The returned in 2014 with sophomore album Moorish Highway, expanding somewhat on their rustic folk sound with a host of guest musicians.
