Alternative Rock Band



Trope is an alternative rock band with progressive elements located in Hollywood, LA. The band formed in 2017 and spent the next few years writing and recording demos which became their debut album Eleutheromania, scheduled for release in fall of 2019.

Trope features guitarist/producer Dave Thompson, Diana Studenberg on vocals, Fernando Jaramillo on drums and Todd Demma on bass.

After recording the demos for Eleutheromania, they garnered the attention of the music industry including Mike Fraser (ACDC, Metallica) who agreed to engineer the album. David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel) also expressed interest and agreed to creatively consult and mix the album. Trope guitarist Dave Thompson produced and Ted Jensen (Eagles, Dave Mathews Band, Pantera, AIC) mastered the album.

Trope signed a world wide deal with Golden Robot Records in March, 2019. Trope’s music has been likened to A Perfect Circle and Tool with female vocals, their sound falling into the Art Rock genre. Their ‘music first’ focus pairs with the groups sound, which is quite progressive.

"The WA-73EQ on vocals and instruments retains warm and deep bottom end, and sweet mid presence. A beautiful tool for tracking.”
