ARTIST BEHIND THE HIT “CHIVALRY IS DEAD”. PAST WORK INCLUDES JOE JONAS, NE-YO, STEVIE WONDER
FRIDAY, APR 21 @ 7PM
Classic, soulful melodies slide effortlessly alongside hip-hop rhythms and smooth percussions, as Trevor Wesley brings a refreshing sense of artistry and true talent to the music scene.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, this Southern California native first began his musical journey at the age of five: sitting at the piano trying to match the sounds of the black and white keys to the pitch of his mother’s vacuum. The son of one of Hollywood’s top camera operators, Trevor’s early aspirations where that of a young actor, however the natural pull of music proved too strong to fight.
Growing up in a family that listened to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Eric Clapton, The Beatles and more, TREVOR was already familiar with timeless creativity. For him, it was a case of blending these legacies into a more modern sound that reflected his true artistic talent and unique personality.
In 2011, Trevor delivered his first musical statement – the self-produced Only Live Once EP. It was hailed by critics and record executives as sonically pure, filled with impeccable R&B and jazz influences. Skits, beautifully written songs, and even a cameo appearance in his promo video by the original gangster, Al Pacino, made TREVOR WESLEY stand apart from the crowd. In the words of the great Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds “This kid is the truth!”
In the past few years, Trevor has written, produced, and performed with the likes of NE-YO, Stevie Wonder, Joe Jonas, Wale, 98 Degrees, Patti LaBelle, and Dion Warwick. His music has also been featured in The Best Man Holiday and the BET show, Being Mary Jane.
As he preps his 1st full-length album, Trevor’s sights are set to the stars. The LP’s lead single and title track, Chivalry Is Dead, has been streamed over 40 million times online and has provided a great platform to introduce his brand and artistry to the world.
From his gorgeous vocals to the tipped Fedora, TREVOR WESLEY is new-school cool meets old-school classic. Refreshingly unadulterated, his smooth tones combined with fresh synths and a contagious smile defines the brand that is Trevor Wesley.
