Trevor Green, who makes use of vocals, guitar (6 and 12 string, lap slide, banjo, mandolin and ukulele), didgeridoo, stompbox, and harmonica has been called a musical breath of fresh air. Michael Billings of the Los Angeles Daily Journal remarked, “The skill-set of this finger-style guitarist’s free form artistic ability combined with enthusiasm and apparent love of cultured music is showcased in a raw, live, unedited fashion. For the past five years Green has toured heavily in the Western states establishing a loyal and devoted fan base. Blending & fusing world, funk, folk and jam rock into a high-energy performance, Green’s music has a universal appeal. In live performance, Green’s set-up resembles that of a musical playground, surrounded by his vast array of instruments. “I’ve always been attracted to instruments of all kinds. As time goes on I continue to collect different instruments and I try to find ways of incorporating them into my setup.” Green continues; “Feeling the music throughout my entire body by playing multiple instruments simultaneously has become very meditative for me.” Constantly evolving as an artist and songwriter Green embarks on his third release, entitled ‘Sacred Seed’, delving deeper into his musical & mystical journey.
