Shovels and Rope Background
and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst were busy with their own careers – his with the band, The Films, and hers
as a soloist before they teamed together. When they started collaborating, just the two of them, they discovered their personal
chemistry transitioned successfully to their music together. Ever since 2010, they've claimed the hearts of many roots-music
fans, thanks to the married couple's heart-tugging songwriting and passionate live stage performances.
Born and raised
in Charleston, South Carolina, Hearst quietly emerged onto the contemporary folk music. It didn't take long, however, after
her tune, "Hell's Bells" was included on the HBO vampire-themed series' True Blood that Hearst gained some fame. This spotlight
only amplified the success of her pair of solo albums and helped garner her some mainstream success as she and her husband,
Michael Trent, collaborated on touring and penning songs.
Trent was somewhat established as a recording artist in his
own right, having issued a solo album in 2010. (This was after initially cutting an independent album with Hearst.)The Winner
came out on his own Shrimp Records Label. Although Trent's solo projects didn't make it to any TV show soundtracks, the tunes
on The Winnerwould definitely interest all fans of Shovels and Rope - they are electrifying and creative, soaked with dance-able
In the spring of 2012, Shovels and Rope dropped their first full-length album, O' Be Joyful. They became officially
recognized as the band named after their first album. Shovels and Rope overtook the folk festival scene that same summer,
claiming the adulation of fans and critics along the way.

Shovels and Rope Trivia
to Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent's official bio, the couple reside on Johns Island, South Carolina, where they are the
proud "parents" of a hound dog and chickens. And, if you're wondering where they borrowed their name from, it comes from the
title of their first album together. According to their official bio page, the couple said, "It's a pretty good record featuring
several murder ballads where some characters were hanging and others were doing the burying, so the title seemed apt. It now
serves as the official moniker of the band." They also added, "The name of the band is not 'Shovels & Ropes.' It's just
one long length of rope, of which you can cut off appropriate lengths to accommodate whatever job necessitates having it."
