about

Jane Kilgour & The Trouts Northampton, Massachusetts

We are The Trouts, a 4-piece acoustic band from Western Massachusetts. We formed in the woods of Hampshire college in 2012 and have been friends ever since. A stand-up bass, a guitar, a mandolin, and a vocalist came together to write songs and play them at house shows, farmers markets, streets, and a few barns. We use the string band as a vehicle to share our indie and soul inspired folk music. ... more

Track Name: Train Song
Hold me
I feel the like the only
One who is losing here
And the only one lost

Show me
A way to get over this hill
I know I am able
The trouble’s my will

But I knew the moment when
I saw that train comin’
I couldn’t get on it
And I couldn’t slow it down

But still I threw my hands up
Threw my voice into and echo
Poured my wishes down your throat
And I threw them all away

But I had my mind set
And you had your choices
And we both had our weakness
And you had your doubt

And now I’m not lonely
I’m just surrounded by holy ghosts
Of people I used to know
And they don’t come around

But that station was empty
Long before you ever left me
And my heart it is heavy
Over Damage we done
Track Name: Old Man
I spoke to an old man
He’s lived many lives
He used to have a wife
He used to thrive

I drove to an old house
I parked in the hay
The old man was not around
He’d gone away

How should we be living when we are still young?
What should we be feeling before we grow too old?
Track Name: Teal Not Blue
Stop running circles ‘round
Your burning bush as it’s burning down
You can build it up or snuff it out
But you must choose

And stop letting fear decide
Your way in life is your only right
Would you really give it up on something uninspired
As an echo

And could it be that you’re missing out,
Or could it be the grass on the other side is still brown?
And could you know from here?
How could you know?

(Chorus)
Before you stay,
Stop and hear the wind
It’s calling your name
And before you go
Stop and thank the ones
Who made it so hard to know
The answers won’t be found here x4
Track Name: Sleep Through The Storm
May you sleep well and be kept warm
May shelter sustain you, to sleep through the storm

Pressures face off, and leave us bruised
But dare not take us or make us choose

Put your cows away and lock the chicken coup
Mortals must remain not altered or skewed

May you wake up feeling safe and unharmed
Watching the rain in the embrace of your lover’s arms

You were out late carrying on
It never dawned on you to sleep through the storm

And then you woke up with a drumbeat to your head
Watching the lighting strike the tree in the window next to your bed

And In the morning after the colors changed
You went see what got damaged and what remained

Your farmhand saved you, she put everything away
Putting the tractor in the barn and putting trouble in the hay

Put your cows away and lock the chicken coup
Mortals must remain not altered or skewed

May you wake up feeling safe and unharmed
Watching the rain in the embrace of your lover’s arms
Track Name: Ancient Oak Tree
I knew a young woman once
She had a thing for me
She knew my ways so well
And she sang so sweetly I forgot myself

And I wasn’t always kind
Mostly I just didn’t mind.
And patient she was with me
And reckless I was so we lost

(Chorus)
But when my river runs straight
I will let you know
And when my trunk grows strong
I will let you know
Cause I, I am a seed
And I, I am a creek
Oh and you deserve an ancient oak tree
And a river that meets the sea
Oh you deserve an ancient oak tree
And a river that meets the sea

And I didn’t break her heart
But I took a part of it
And now I’d sell it out
To the lowest bid to lose the weight of it

(Chorus)
Track Name: The People Nearby
On our way up the mountain we got lost
In our acid washed jeans we went tripping up the rocks
And we knew that the view would be worth the wait
So we stopped at halfway and ate

On our way down the mountain we got really, really lost
Climbed the edge and fell right off the map
And we swore that beneath us was not rocks and dirt
But under our feet was an ocean of earth

(Chorus)
dada da da da da dadada
dada da da da dada dada dada dum
dada da dada da dada da dada da dada
da da dum

I know all the best ships all have pirates in their sails
And all the best kites all have bows on their tails
And on top of that mountain higher than high
I knew the best people were people nearby.

(Chorus)

From on top of a mountain you can see the ground
And on top of a mountain you can see around
And on top of a mountain you can see the sky
But my favorite thing about that mountain was your eyes
