Trevor Bystrom, lead singer of the band, plays a wide range of instruments in various styles, including a Weissenborn slide guitar, 12-string guitar, and an instrument he built himself called an ngoni (African harp). Spanning multiple genres, his original compositions continue to explore new world sounds and grooves. Trevor is a singer-songwriter at his core, having begun writing his first year of high school, and enjoys the process of seeing his originals come to life, from the initial acoustic versions of his songs, to the full band sound, to the engineered art of the recording studio.
Trevor was born and raised on Anna Maria Island by a musical family, and as a child, often traveled with his family to music festivals all around Florida. At 16, after having written his first set of originals, he began performing around local venues. Today Trevor has built his band with some of the most talented musicians in the Tampa Bay area.
