Five years, five albums, six American tours, 17 international awards, and guest appearances from the likes of Janis Ian, Tracy Nelson (Mother Earth), Paul Barrere (Little Feat) Vickie Carrico, and Sean O’Bryan Smith (Keith Urban, Kenny Rogers, Lady Antebellum), the new album from Trevor Sewell, Calling Nashville, produced by Geoff Wilbourn at the iconic Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, is currently smashing down the barriers between Contemporary Blues and Americana, with dates already set for Europe and the United States.
After spending many years as a session musician, Trevor decided to go it alone, rapidly establishing himself as one of the great emerging guitar talents, and gaining legions of fans in the process. In the U.S., his first album, Calling Your Name, reached Number 1 on the American Blues Scene chart, where it stayed for seven weeks. His songs have since appeared on more than twenty compilations, alongside Robert Johnson, B.B. King, and Bruce Springsteen.
Trevor, who hails from the U.K., is one of the most-played Blues artists on the U. K.’s official IBBA Radio Chart for two consecutive years now. He has also performed in the second, third and fourth annual ‘The Soirée’ in other Los Angeles and New York during Grammy® Week, in sold-out shows at the Whisky A Go Go, the El Rey Theatre and BB Kings NYC.

“I’ve been a big fan of Trevor’s work ever since hearing his Hollow album, so meeting him earlier this year was a real treat. I offered to play on his next record, but wasn’t sure if he’d take me up on it—fortunately he did.”
~ Janis Ian
