Out now "on all the usual platforms," as they say. If you give it a listen, I hope you enjoy it!
It was the publicist, Eric Alper, who drew my attention to music competitions. I have never been drawn to them, but his suggestion led me to give them a try. I hoped this might broaden the audience for my music, and it turns out this is happening. I entered the Unsigned Only Music Competition (semi-finalist) and The Starlite Sessions (Artist of the Day, Sept. 2, 2021) and visits to https://trevorowenmusic.com are up since I entered, which is lovely to see.
Many thanks to all who have visited, and, of course, to Eric! I don’t know whether I will keep this up, but I have entered another, and I should know more in the spring.
I had hoped to bring my interest in American Sign Language to my music, and lyric videos presented an opportunity. Many thanks to 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.
"Sweet Bitter," co-written with Marcus Vichert, was recorded at Marquee Sound in Toronto. Many thanks to owne/engineer Braden Sauder for his work on this project.
"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!
Post-pandemic performances may be arranged as a duo/trio, or as a full band (quartet, quintet and sextet.)
