Chapel Hill, NC-based insurgent country band Trailer Bride was led by singer/songwriter Melissa Swingle, a onetime member of the all-female trio Pussy Teeth. Following that band's demise, Swingle switched from bass to guitar, began writing songs and formed Trailer Bride in 1993 with upright bassist Daryl White. Following a succession of drummers, Brad Goolsby joined the line-up, and with the addition of lead guitarist Bryon Settle, the roster was complete; in late 1996, Trailer Bride issued its self-titled debut album on Walt Records, jumping to Bloodshot for the 1998 follow-up Smelling Salts. Whine de Lune -- recorded with new guitarist Scott Goolsby -- appeared a year later. Bloodshot Records issued High Seas in mid-2001. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
