Guest Artist: Trevor Green
Spirited, deep, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe the artist known as Trevor Green. His music is something fresh and distinctly new, yet is deeply woven in the spiritual fabric of our ancient ancestors. Surrounded by 5 guitars, 3 didgeridoos, an array of percussion instruments and decorated of symbolic ancestral nature, Green's stage appears to be a musical playground not for the faint of heart.
As a powerful advocate of Native American voice, he was adopted into a Navajo family and will often be graced by the power of Native American grass dancers who will take to the stage creating a mystical and captivating experience.
On the heels of Green's recent EP 'Collide,' comes the latest and most anticipated of his musical offerings. 'Voice of the Wind,' Green's 5th studio album, is a captivating sonic journey exposing the foundational fabric from which his inspiration is born. Traveling the depths of emotion and musical experience, 'Voice of the Wind' brings the listener into the haunting mystical realms of songs like "Rainbow Medicine," to the foot stomping grooves of "Let it Go" and into the celebratory experience of the songs like "Red Road" and the title track "Voice of the Wind." This record is a culmination of Trevor's music and spiritual experiences to date and expresses the willingness to invite each listener into his personal journey as a reflection of their own.
