MINTA & THE BROOK TROUT MAKE MUSIC IN LISBON, PORTUGAL
Minta & The Brook Trout have been making music in Lisbon for 10+ years.
In 2009, a year after Francisca “Minta” Cortesão released debut a 5-song EP called You, Minta & The Brook Trout became a band.
With a mutable cast of some of the best Lisbon-based musicians, both as band members and as guests on records and shows, Minta & The Brook Trout been recording and performing concise songs about people ever since.
Besides two live recordings (Carnide and Out of Washington State) and a short EP, Row, Minta & The Brook Trout have released three full-length albums to date, Minta & The Brook Trout (2009), Olympia (2012) and Slow (2016). The latter two were released in cassete form by independent labels in the US.
The yet-untitled fourth album is in the works and is scheduled for release in early 2021.
