About The Aly Rose Trio

Aly Rose

Aly leads the band’s sound with her powerful, soulful vocals, inspired by the best singers of the past and present. She artfully tailors her voice to the band’s wide range of musical styles, equally at home singing softly to jazz classics or belting it out to the rock songs the band grew up on. Her influences include Nina Simone, Etta James, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, and Beyonce.

Justin Leonard

Justin is the band’s backbone, providing a solid sense of rhythm and a diligent, disciplined approach to his playing. A talented multi-instrumentalist with a rich history of projects under his belt, he lays it down on guitar, keys, and occasionally drums. He also acts as the band’s audio and video wizard, creating all of the band’s graphics and filming, editing, mixing and mastering all of their video content. His influences include Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band, Jimi Hendrix, and The Meters.

David Gray

David is a capable multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger with a deep love for all kinds of music. In the band, he serves as the primary soloist, playing leads on guitar and keyboard with a healthy mix of improvisation and careful part-writing, and he occasionally shows off his roots as a drummer by holding down the beat on the cajon, and sometimes on a full drum kit. He also serves as the band’s manager, producer, and booking agent, keeping their goals on track with careful planning and strategy. His influences include Snarky Puppy, the Punch Brothers, the Mars Volta, Becca Stevens, and Porcupine Tree.
