The Trio, which hails from Santa Rosa, California, first came into existence in 2008, worked steadily for about a year, released a cd, SO FAR, SO GOOD in 2009 and then went into semi musical hibernation. Over the next few years, Henry and Rory continued to perform together occasionally with a rotating cast of bass-players and other instrumentalists. The Ring Of Truth Trio appeared whenever they had time away from other projects. In January 2014, the very talented multi instrumentalist, Roxanne Oliva joined and the trio began a new lease of life. December 2014 saw the release of DANGEROUS BUSINESS, the trio's second cd.



Rory McNamara arrived in the USA from England in the 1970's and became part of San Francisco's folk music revival. Over the years he has been a member of (including The Mild Colonial Boys) several touring ensembles and released 5 albums.  Though he retains his British accent, his style  has pure American roots. "Rory has a voice akin to aural comfort food – congenial, emotionally satisfying, full of soul and pleasing to the ears. A voice you want to listen to over and over again."    

Henry Nagle is an ace pedal steel and guitar player who excels at unwarranted hypothesizing. He is featured in many  ensembles including Chelsea Set, The Spindles, Eight Belles & Killer Views.  He is a charter member of The Ring Of Truth Trio

Roxanne Oliva, the newest member of the trio is an accordionist, composer, and Celtic music teacher. As a multi-instrumentalist, Roxanne has appeared on over 30 albums with various luminaries including Paddy Keenan and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Tom Waits.
