The Trash Cats are two singers, one piano and one guitar. That’s all it takes. Both guitarist Sean Mahoney and keyboard player Matt Sjelin perform in the Duluth band Songs of Shipwreck but the Trash Cats give them another outlet. “Sometimes one musical project isn’t enough to scratch every musical itch,” says Mahoney. “While playing rock music is intensely gratifying, sometimes you just want to strip it down and bare your soul. Slowing things down and leaving space between notes are the cornerstones of this project.” Classify the Trash Cats as “folksy acoustic jazz pop.”
