Those who visit this site—thank you—may recall that I have been working with publicist, Eric Alper, who alerted me to the Unsigned Only Music Competition a few months ago. I submitted three songs from my album, and one of them, Sweet Bitter, co-written with Marcus Vichert, was selected as a semi-finalist (there were some 1200 songs selected from about 10,000 submissions.) This process has now concluded for me. Many thanks to Eric for alerting me to this!
I had hoped to bring my interest in American Sign Language to my music, and lyric videos presented an opportunity. Many thanks to the Canadian Hearing Services, which kindly guided me to actor Dawn Jani Birley. I think she has done a fine job, and I will feature these videos each week or so.

"Let's make a record," said Marcus Vichert, my long-time friend and musical accomplice in October, 2018. Over the rest of that year, and much of the next, this album—let that sink in—was made, largely according to studio availability. It comprises six of my songs, including one co-written with Marcus, and four interpretations I have played over the years, and feel close to.
I have been very lucky to work with those who brought this project from an idea in Marcus’s imagination, to the final record: Braden Sauder, engineer/owner, Marquee Sound; Jeff Beauchamp, basses (four, I think), vocals; Jamie Bird, drums and percussion, vocals; Donavon LeNabat, keyboards, vocals; Keira McArthur, cello and vocals; and, Marcus Vichert, producer; slide, acoustic, sustainer and mandoguitars. I feel very lucky that designer Kerrin Hands made himself available.Many thanks all!
This record was a pleasure to make, and I hope you enjoy listening to it. BandCamp, Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify and the like. I will post some videos, below. AvailabilityPost-pandemic performances may be arranged as a duo/trio, or as a full band (quartet, quintet and sextet.) Information & Contacthttp://www.trevorowenmusic.com
I played lots of music with people on Mull during my 2019 visit, and I would join in on this session a bit later, but this snippet features Terry Ward, guitar, the late (alas) Joe McHugh, bouzouki, and Julie Ward, concertina, and is from the first musical gathering for me that visit, held at the Pennyghael Community BBQ, Aug. 15-19.
Regular Thursday musical evening at the Keel Row, Fionnphort, Isle of Mull, Aug29-19. Joe McHugh, Clive Bilney & Glen Cato were also joined by Charley Streather and Yours Truly on guitar (though the angle was not good for Wendy’s camera.)
I have posted some lyric videos of songs from the album. Please check back for more in the coming weeks.
