Hello, we are Troll 2. We are a group of songwriters from Boston, Massachusetts. We play folk
music very loudly, and then someone falls down.
Our story begins some time around 2011 or 2012 in a basement in Jamaica Plain, MA, but
we’re not sure exactly when or how. From somewhere in the gaps between an ill-fated acoustic
doom metal band, several unfinished concept albums, and an untold number of pseudonyms
scrawled onto open mic sign up sheets (each one filthier than the one before), we suddenly
found ourselves in a band together, stuck with the most recent name we had decided to call
ourselves. I assure you, we never meant for any
of this to happen. Still, we somehow managed to find our way, and today we play our Bluegrass
Soul Punk in basements and bars across Boston and beyond, enlightening people about
important social and political issues like climate justice, addiction, carpet bombings, our
breakups and alien abduction, while also inspiring mirth and dance. Soon, we hope to see you
out there with those people, laughing, learning, living, loving, lusting, loathing, looting,
