Troubadour Blue blends evocative songwriting & compelling musical arrangements, daring you not to feel something when listening to their melodies. The trio is composed of siblings, Brenna and Eli Wheeler and Daniel Kim Ethridge. While Brenna and Eli are Nashville natives, Daniel hails from Austin, TX by way of Long Beach, CA. Together, the three transport listeners into the stories of their songs.
The idea of Troubadour Blue was sparked during 2019 when Daniel and Brenna, who met during their time in the Belmont Bluegrass Ensemble in 2015, found themselves in the world of Nashville’s “hired guns” and desired a project where they possessed full creative control. COVID-19 became the world’s reality just as the group emerged from the studio. Though their timeline seemed perpetually pushed back, it opened the door for Eli, Brenna’s brother, to join upon graduating from Elon University and rounded out the trio’s sound.
