TRIGRAMS was built by night as Coleman Alley and Mark Maldonado locked themselves in a tiny studio with nothing more than drums and a piano searching for their musical identity. The goal was to find something honest and insightful to help them better understand themselves and deal with the culture surrounding them.
The foundation of TRIGRAMS is Maldonado’s intrinsic beats, emphasized by his intense and energetic playing style. Matched by Alley’s thundering keyboards and powerfully melodic vocals, they forge a unique path between alternative rock and indie pop. With the addition of bass and guitar, the soundscape leads you on an adventure through the feelings and trials of the human experience.
Before TRIGRAMS, Alley spent years as a musician, growing up as a classically trained singer and touring with his school’s choir, the Paulist Boy Choristers of California. After discovering guitar, he began writing music and started his first band with Maldonado as teenagers. Years later, they reunited with a remarkable musical familiarity that allowed them to immediately focus on honing their craft.
Where will TRIGRAMS go from here? Stay tuned to fine out!
