Named after an old Western novel, Anna Fermin’s TRIGGER GOSPEL reflects a spirited sound that intertwines hometown country and rock & roll with “a strong melodic-pop appeal.” (Holly Rushakoff, The Octopus)

Formed in 1997, Anna Fermin’s TRIGGER GOSPEL has garnered the attention and respect of critics and music fans alike, hooking audiences with their memorable songs and rousing live shows. In the y
ears this Chicago-based band has been together, they’ve shared the stage with an impressive roster of musicians including Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, Joe Ely, Robbie Fulks, David Crosby, Delbert McClinton, Neko Case and many more.

The eclectic influences of her bandmates, who include Paul Bivans on drums & percussion, Michael Krayniak on bass, Andon Davis on guitars and Alton Smith on keyboard, have become the perfect compliment to Fermin’s stunning originals, "that smartly place her voice where it belongs - front and center.” (Monica Eng/Chicago Tribune)
