MUSIC. 

Not the gauntlet of the "music biz" or the maze of "music ed".

Just your friend, Music.

I've been doing this for a while now. It keeps getting deeper and folks are starting to catch on.

Thank you, again and again.

At the beginning of 2018 I launched a podcast. 

Haven’t heard the show yet? Start here.
Thank you so much for listening!
It was a risk to start making the show and I am so happy that you like it.

On it, professional musicians talk shop and craft.  We're not centered around any one genre. It’s not about gear. It’s not trying to sell you anything. We just connect around our daily pursuit of musical excellence, which means something different to everybody.


"But he plays too..."

YES.  My sound continues to be my medicine. I found it early in life and over the years have done everything to stay close to it.

But while music has saved my own life more times than I can count, it’s hearing stories from you that cement the bond.

You’ve told me how tracks of mine got you through tough times, fueled your celebrations and even inspired you to make babies.

Your connection to the music means the world to me.  Your inspiration and goodness keep me going

(And it's all coming out on that amazing cello you bought me.)

So I consider it my duty to keep the fire burning.  I do this with joy, every day.  Thank you, again and again.


"So you're writing new songs, Trev?"
 Yes, with your participation.

I want to share what I've been working on with you.  This is no small thing. 
We're talking brand new demos.  Version Zero prototypes, just as each song is being born. These are not the final album tracks, rather the first little explosion of life.  Very few artists are willing to share these moments because they are actual magic.

They can also be embarrassing, but we will experience their creation together.  EXCLUSIVELY HERE ON PATREON.

I want to hear your opinion too, your voice will matter.  But only here. Not on Instagram, not Facebook or any of those other places.

Here's my proposal:  You chip in a few bucks, and I'll keep putting out the audio, the podcast and also play new pieces for you here as they're getting made. 

By supporting me through this page, you are sending energy DIRECTLY to where it will help the most. Because the more you value the music, the more of it I can make available to you.


Ready?

If you are, then let's jump in. 
Pick a reward level on the right, sign up and we'll begin.

There's already a bunch of new music waiting for you inside.

Love and Thank You,
Trevor




Frequently Asked Questions:

"What is Patreon?"
- It is your opportunity to invite more of my work into the world.  It is voluntary and it is direct and it is easy.  You also get to participate by weighing in.

You may contribute your ideas, your feelings, and a few dollars to keep the heat on.
IT IS DIRT CHEAP: Tiers begin at just $3.


"Why Patreon? And why now?"
- Because great work doesn't get done in a vacuum, and I've missed performing for you.


There is no secret. I am a music professional in NYC: I work in cover bands, I sub a little on Broadway, do the occasional teaching gig, play on some jingles, lots of other sessions and some church gigs. I back people up. I produce podcasts. One way or another, the rent gets paid.

But if you’ve followed me for a while,
you know that my personal music didn't always take a back seat to the freelance work. I've made many records, many videos and played hundreds of shows under my own name. This page is your chance to support new creative efforts of mine.


"How much will I pay, and when?"
- You pick an amount for each song, podcast or video.  $3 is less than a latte.  Of course you can join the elite multi-thousand-clam-per-song illuminati, but I'll happily take $3.

- You set your own monthly maximum, so you won't get surprised/shafted by increased volume of output.
- All charges happen on the 1st of each month.  Hate a song?  


"How much money do you need from us listeners?"
Try to treat this Patreon thing like the tip jar at the local club. I might buy a sandwich.  Cab fare.  A little gear, pay rent.  The basics....

OR!  OR!  OR! 
YOU CAN give a bit more so that the thing can grow. Here are some of the ways I want to expand:

  • Release podcast episodes more frequently. How about twice a week? There are plenty of players out there, but to do them all justice will take substantial listener support.
  • Make a new record.
  • Hire a producer and editor to improve the quality of the show.
  • Make a new record.
  • Travel to visit musicians in other places. You know you’re everywhere. We want to talk to you on your own turf. Philly, NoLa, Chicago, Prague, LA, Rio, Nashville, London, Trenton... there's no end.
  • Make a new record
  • Live events. How about recording an interview with a great local player, on stage in your town?
  • Make a n.... OK WE GET IT TREV
  • Other things. Lots of other potential things, but let's start with the above.

"How much time goes into producing each episode?"
More than you think, and more than might seem reasonable. I want to make it as good as possible, so I spend the time. It’s not like making a record, but it’s pretty intense to put a new one up each time.

Your ears, input, feelings and support are what keeps this thing going.  You already get charged small amounts for all kinds of dumb things you don't need.  Over here at Trev HQ we guarantee a steady commitment to musical excellence and heartful innovation for your several senses.

Ready?  Awesome!
