Heartland Trio

Founded by bassist Hannah Marks in 2017, Heartland Trio consists of Hannah Marks on double bass and vocals, Barclay Moffitt on tenor saxophone, and Rocky Martin on drums. The band, who recently won the inaugural Detroit Jazz Festival Collegiate Combo Competition, draws from Marks’ musical upbringing in folk and spirituals, while grounded in the group’s improvisational and groove background of jazz and rock. Along with their original compositions, Heartland Trio also uses jazz standards, rock songs, and traditional folk tunes as vehicles for expression. The trio's sound reflects their desire to create with a gritty and spontaneous garage band mentality while exploring beyond the boundaries of the traditional roles of their instruments in a jazz setting. Their debut album, Year One, was released in November 2018.
