Born in Southern California in the 80s, raised on a steady diet AM radio Trevor absorbed it all, like a sponge. Add his uncle’s Bob Dylan songbook at his side, at 12 years old he understood where he wanted to go and what he wanted to do. Exploring the coasts, hiking the hills, and Little League soon gave into a full-time obsession of music. An obsession that wouldn’t just selfishly exist as someone looking for the fast track to stardom but rather a truly giving multi instrumentalist. An accomplished songwriter looking to enrich and relate to hearts and ears the world over.If you’ve been paying any attention to the southern California music scene the last decade or so, you already know Trevor from his bands Tall Tales & Silver Linings and Parting Lines. He’s contributed to projects from the likes of Fruit Bats, Kacey Johansing, and DIOS; and plays a key role as co-writer and drummer for GospelbeacH.
Trevor’s debut solo work, I Like It Here, is a classic Southern California rock record that weaves between guitar solo-driven power anthems, and softer rock ballads. Songs like “Get Ready to Fly” and “TRS” are bound to be danceable crowd-pleasers, while tracks like “I Believe in You” and “When Your Love Surrounds Me” showcase Trevor’s sensitivity and prowess as a wordsmith. “Saying Goodbye” is a beautiful tribute to Neal Casal. Trevor’s songs are infused with honey-colored melodies and old soul lyricism, inspiring hope in the hearts of listeners. Trevor believes in every word he’s singing – peace and true love, beauty, family, grace – and for a moment, the listener does too. I Like It Here was created while balancing being a husband and father, a worker, and band member; between transatlantic tours, global pandemics, and civil unrest, I Like It Here shines with unclouded optimism that true love will see us through.But as the saying goes, ‘talking about music is like dancing about architecture’. Listen to the album, close your eyes and become engulfed into this world. But remember, this is not nostalgia. It is the soul of yesterday, today.
