Amazing together and individually
Trey Lockerbie with Josh Hoge, and Ernie Halter.
(Trey Lockerbie was born in the indie-rock hotbed of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but grew up in Bloomington, Indiana. However, the Carolina connection came in handy when he met the man who was to become a major influence, Joe Firstman, the former Music Director of “Last Call with Carson Daly” and an acclaimed musician from the Tar Heel State in his own right. The duo met when Trey was playing with Josh Hoge, who was on a co-headlining tour with Firstman. The latter heard some of Trey’s original songs and started inviting him up on stage to perform a song during his own sets. The pair quickly hit it off and established a relationship that endures to this day.)
