Quartet 122 simultaneously combines the esthetics of a classical chamber group with the freedom, spontaneity, and improvisation of a small jazz combo—all these elements are captured in the ensemble’s compositions, arrangements, and transcriptions.

Four years ago, two solo artists from opposite sides of the world met at a Love Festival. Michael Trotter, Jr. had just returned home after serving in the Iraq war and Tanya Blount was performing on various stages around the world. They fell in love and combined their talents to form The War and Treaty. The duo have been performing on stage and writing beautiful music together ever since.

They are currently increasing fans on the social media airwaves with the soulful pop-folk songs from their much anticipated debut album, The War and Treaty: Live at Blue House Studios. Their music is intimate, innovative and exciting. The War and Treaty is gaining momentum and their success has led to a national 20 city tour in United States ending this year in Zurich, Switzerland.

Most will instantly recognize singer Tanya Blount from the movie Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit where she sang “His Eye Is on the Sparrow” with Lauryn Hill. Blount appeared on the Big Break television show (similar to Star Search) hosted by Natalie Cole. From there, she secured a recording contract with Polydor Records at age 19. The following year, she released her first album, Natural Thing, which peaked at #7 on the R&B chart. The album’s first single “I’m Gonna Make You Mine” peaked to #57 on Billboard’s R&B Singles chart. Two singles followed, “Through the Rain” and “Hold On” soared to #27 at #66 respectively on Billboard’s R&B Singles chart. By 1995, Blount received a nomination for Best New Artist at the Soul Train Awards.

Michael Trotter is most recognizable as a former Indie Gospel artist trudging through the trenches of the underground pipelines. In 1996, he won Washington DC’s Futurefest Singing Competition hosted by former mayor Marion Barry. From there, Trotter joined the military where he served valiantly in Iraq from 2003-2007. In 2005, Trotter won the Baumholder, Germany “Military Idol” judged by American Idol’s voice coach Debra Bryd, ACM’s award-winning vocalist Mark Wills and legendary recording artist Michael Peterson. In 2012, Trotter was featured on Hope Channel’s My Story, My Song where he both sang as a solo artist and shared his story about his time at war. In 2013, Trotter received Congressional Recognition from the House of Representatives and was presented a certificate by Rep. Donna Edwards.

In early 2015, the duo will release their debut album entitled The War and Treaty: Live at Blue House Studios, recorded in front of a live studio audience in Bethesda, Maryland. Fifty percent of all digital album sales proceeds will be donated to Operation Second Chance, a non-profit organization committed to serving wounded, injured and ill combat veterans including those with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD hits close to home with the band, as Trotter was recently diagnosed with it after serving two tours in Iraq.
