Trembles of Fortune

Trembles of Fortune is the solo project of Geoff Thevenot, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Chicago area.

Trembles of Fortune’s sound brings together classic 70s west coast studio rock and early 80s cerebral pop, providing a sophisticated and soulful backdrop for stories and observations of all-too-human frailties and indecision.

The lush arrangements and smooth, insistent grooves often belie the world-weary edge underneath, but there’s hope and spirit here as well. Trembles of Fortune’s self-titled debut was released in 2018, and the second full-length album, Sucker In The Promised Land, will be released early in 2020.


The second Trembles of Fortune album, Sucker In The Promised Land, is now complete! The first song should be up in all the usual places by late January, with the full album becoming available in early March. (And, of course, you can hear Trembles of Fortune’s self-titled debut album right here, as well as on Spotify, YouTube, Bandcamp and elsewhere.)
