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. At age 18, he started working on his first album, “Fly Away.” During that year, he expanded his solo act, to play a duo set with Morgan Greig on percussion and didgeridoo. The album was released and sold over 150 copies the first night. A few years later, Trevor and Morgan joined up with Kristie Armas on the U-bass to form, The Tribal Trio. With this acoustic act, Trevor released his second album, “Live and Direct,” which sold almost 1,000 copies without a label. After two years with this trio, Trevor’s songwriting visions led him to pursue a full-band.
When not exploring new instruments, writing songs, or performing, Kristie also has a devotion to environmental activism & wildlife conservation. She has served as an executive board member in the state non-profit environmental group, The Silver Springs Alliance, and served as an assistant manager for an animal science education program, teaching people of all ages the importance of wildlife & conservation. At last, she has successfully bridged her two passions, music & activism, with fellow like-minded musicians, who are also eager to use music as a platform to serve local communities and help build a better future for this planet.
