Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Trevor B Power
Trevor B. Power’s love of music flows from his very roots. Many childhood days and nights were spent in the company of the old turntable in his parents’ New Jersey home. From dramatically composed opera to smooth winding blues, the records he loved created a soundtrack to his childhood that would later influence a diversely conversant musical style. It didn’t take long for Trevor to combine his love of music with his natural performing ability. Through this ambition and effort, Trevor spent two and a half decades dedicating himself to his passion. Throughout the United States, Trevor could be found influencing the music scene performing solo and in bands.
It was a natural move to take his passion to the airwaves as Trevor accepted a reputable position at the legendary radio station WNTI. This was an outstanding period of exposure and growth, offering great access to many volumes of recorded music. His love for the blues grew much stronger. During this time, Trevor befriended American singer, songwriter, and musician Bobby Whitlock and his wife CoCo Carmel. Bobby Whitlock, best known as a member of “Derek and the Dominos” with Eric Clapton, and CoCo were influential in inspiring Trevor to write and record more music of his own.
In 2019, Trevor released his debut album “Everyday Angel” recorded at Sonic Boom Studios with Anthony Krizan (Spin Doctors, Lenny Kravitz, and Noel Redding). A compilation of original blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll tunes, the album guests include Bobby Whitlock, CoCo Carmel, John Ginty of The Allman Betts Band, and Anthony Krizan. It was met with critical acclaim and notched “The Best of 2019” sitting at #24 on the Roots Music Report Blues Rock chart.
On the heels of a successful tour, the pandemic has done nothing to dampen Trevor’s passion and distancing has brought out even greater inspiration for composition. With Anthony Krizan providing unrivaled oversight, Trevor returned to Sonic Boom Studios to record is sophomore album. The album’s first single, ‘Pandemic 2020,’ composed during COVID-19 lockdown, is a catchy tune with surprising depth. Acknowledging the pandemic and devastating pain of loss, the latest album “What Is Real” highlights the truth of the indomitable spirit of the American People.
