The melodramatic pop of Trashcan Sinatras lures listeners into a state of comfortable lounging. The floating atmosphere they create relaxes the mind and moves the spirit.

The Scotland-based band consists of Frank Reader (vocals), John Douglas (guitar), Paul Livingston (lead guitar), Stephen Douglas (drums), Stevie Mulhearn (keyboards), Frank DiVanna (bass on tour) and Grant Wilson (bass on recordings). The Sinatras frequently perform acoustic-only shows providing a more natural feel to their melodies, which fuse with lyrics such as "up from the darkest earth comes the whitest rose." The group's name may have been inspired by Frank Sinatra, but the band has managed to build its own identity since it first formed in 1987.

During their 2004 touring introduction into the United States USA Today named the Trashcan Sinatras one of "10 bands you must hear right now!" To reach such a status the Sinatras have overcome separation and inactivity which commonly plagues many long-term bands. They have 6 album releases, with their most recent studio-recorded album being 2009's In The Music released. In addition, the Sinatras have offered fans a series of free downloads and Internet-only releases to make up for lengthy delays between formal albums. The band is currently on an acoustic tour in the U.S. with their next round of shows coming to the Midwest.
