After forming in the small town of Hamburg around 2009, Trey and the rest of THB quickly established themselves as the band to watch. Singer/songwriter, guitarist and founder of the band, Trey Hawkins, has been drawing crowds and entertaining audiences for years with real lyrics about breakups, breakdowns, love, pain, growing up and being from the South. With the addition of guitarists, Aaron Murphy and Andrew Breedlove, drummer Jonathan Breedlove, and bassist Mark Bolin, the sound of the South prevails.
