Alicja Trout is a Memphis-based American rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and artist.

She is best known for her work with the synth-heavy Lost Sounds, which she started with Jay Reatard. Her current band, the River City Tanlines, were named an essential Memphis band by Spin Magazine in December 2007.[1]

Trout also owns and operates Contaminated Records, her own independent record label. In 2009 she was featured on the MTV show $5 Cover.

Other musical projects[edit]

After the Lost Sounds "abruptly yet not unexpectedly" disbanded in May 2005, Trout's focus switched to the River City Tanlines, a more rock and roll oriented band.[2] Trout has also played a part in a number of other Memphis-based rock bands, including: The Clears, The Fitts, The CC Riders, Mouserocket, Destruction Unit and Black Sunday.[3]
In September 2011, Certified PR Records released a 7 inch record of her latest solo project, "Alicja-Pop!".[4]
