Tripp Mathis was born and raised in Fort Worth, Tx. His parents have been in the music industry in one form or another since the mid 1960's.

 

Tripp, who's first instrument was drums, became a percussionist for Spoonfed Tribe shortly after high school. After his stint with Spoonfed he began a six year run with Catfish Whiskey, fronted by Keegan McInroe.

He is now married to Anna-Kate Mathis, with whom he recorded a cover of Bob Dylan's Forever Young for their two children Layla and Jude.

 

Tripp has spent the last few years building a band from scratch around his honest lyrics and undeniable harp skills. He ironically refers to his band as "The Traitors"; a mix of roots-driven rythym and not-quite-bluegrass picking mixed with soulfully crafted acoustic near-ballads, both settling comfortably behind Tripp's gravelly yet emotive voice.
