It’s time now for a Tiny Desert Concert. It’s a series where we bring local Arizona bands and musicians into the KJZZ studios to play a couple of songs and talk about their music.

Loud, expressive and multi-layered, local indie-punk band, Sundressed, is used to laying it all bare when they take the stage. So when lead singer and songwriter, Trevor Hedges, was asked to perform acoustically, the performance had a new level of rawness.

He and the band’s guitarist, Forest Walldorf, performed at South Mountain’s Holbert Trail for a Tiny Desert Concert in the desert.

For Hedges, from the very beginning, those songs have been a essential part of his journey to get — and stay — sober.
