Spirited, deep, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe the artist known as Trevor Green. His music is a something fresh and distinctly new, yet is deeply woven in the spiritual fabric of our ancient ancestors. Surrounded by 5 guitars, 3 didgeridoos, 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 occasionally will take to the stage creating a mystical and captivating experience.
"I follow the music where it leads me. Through this process I find the music always comes from an honest place and that is most important in receiving the songs when they come through." What deepens the music is Trevor's ability to connect with his audience. Threading together sing-able and uplifting melodies, dynamic instrumentation, heart pounding rhythms, and the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo, with his spontaneous improvisational ability, Green's performance is a one man powerhouse with universal appeal that seems to come from the ground up. With his honest delivery and ability to extricate the music from a deep place of truth, he leads his audience through vast landscapes of sound, weaving together a magnetic and spellbinding performance.
Through Green's devotion to bring forward the messages of our ancestors and connect deeply with culture, he recently launched a successful crowdfunding campaign that sent him, his wife, two young children and the son of his adopted Navajo brother on a two month journey into the heart of Australia to discover the roots of the aboriginal culture and the story behind the didgeridoo (yidaki), which has been such a fundamental part of the sound scape behind his music. Performing 25 shows across the region and meeting with various wisdom keepers from the indigenous aboriginal cultures, this would prove to be yet another life altering journey of deep magnitude. In seeking a deeper understanding and connection to didgeridoo, he was lead to a far deeper connection with the aboriginal community of Northeast Arnhem Land where he and family were adopted into the Galpu clan. Given the name “North Wind” by elder Djalu Gurruwwiwi, he brings the blessing back to North America where he offers his fifth studio album, the 'Voice of the Wind'.
