So glad you made it!

Hey, music-lover! Welcome to the, er, place chez Trey Roque.

Trey's a singer-songwriter operating out of Prague, Czech Republic. This ain't Nebraska, Toto, but we got kolache!

Lyrically? His songs are about men and women, friendships, dogs, and this whole-life-thing thing.

Musically? His songs are about 3 minutes long. Tops.

Sounds like? Why not find out for yourself? And let us know what handle we can put on his music, as we're uberly-bad at doing so.

Trey's Way – The Blog

May Day Is For Lovers in Prague 

Thanks to a famous poem, it's traditional in the capital, if not the provinces, to go to a park (Petrin) and kiss under the cherry-tree blossom.

Well, when it comes to kissing lovely ladies in romantic settings, we are always up to our chores, so up the hill we troop....

Meanwhile, there was some quite nice classical ensemble playing. If anyone know the pieces they're playing,let us know in the comments.


Firsts of the Season 

Spring's come to Prague, and the kestrels are a-screetching. Which is music to their ears, if no one else's...



Actually, kestrels are close to Trey's heart. Maybe it's the imprinting from Ken Loach's fine movie, 'Kes', or maybe it's how these birds thrive in spite of Man's depredations. Hey – maybe it's simply that they're a good-lookin', graceful creature.

Meanwhile a first lonely swift cut across the courtyard today. Another noisy bird, sure, but a good omen for the tee-shirted weather to come.

SUBJECT TO CHANGE is not even cut into warm slices and sent out the door in a nice square box, and Trey is already working on the next LP.

That's right. This one is slated for release November 2015... So he ought to get kneading more of that tasty dough, right?

To this end, let’s give a Roquing welcome to Ranjana Epp, our journeywoman cellist!

Here’s a rough demo of our first rehearsal, for that old favourite, SUGARPLUM FAIRY. It’s a bit shaky, as Trey’d just cut my finger deep on a trashcan, and Rani hadn’t played this more than once. But it’s nice, innit?

'SUBJECT TO CHANGE' – New Full-Length LP to be Released This May! 

After much Murphy's Law, K2-sized learning curves and false promises, the new LP is gonna be OUT! W00t!

Titled SUBJECT TO CHANGE, it boasts 14 tracks of singer-songwriter goodness. Oh my!

Trey is playing all the instruments he plays on it and none of those instruments he doesn't play. Tracked, arranged, produced, and mixed himself. It's like a gesamkunstwerk for the lonely, a soup-to-nuts affair..... Wait.... Don't hold that thought.

"But is this just another bloke noodling on an acoustic guitar?"  we hear you ask. The answer is, "Ne!"

SUBJECT TO CHANGE will waggle your ears with a dazzling ear-buffet of genres, textures and emotions. If you don't like a song – skip to the next, it will be, like, toadally different. If you do like a song – tell your friends.
