Trio Subtonic with Dan Balmer

Trio Subtonic

Led by keyboardist Galen Clark and including Bill Athens on bass and Russ Kleiner on drums, Trio Subtonic explores a unique mixture of rock, soul, funk, hip hop, and jazz that draws in listeners and pushes boundaries.

Dan Balmer, long considered one of the finest guitarists, composers, and educators in the Northwest, has been a frequent collaborator with the trio for several years. Balmer is the youngest person to be included in both the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame and is hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “the model of what a contemporary guitarist should be.”
