Born February 14th, 1974, Trevor R Todd entered the world in El Paso, Texas. His childhood is reported to have been rough. Military family, rocky marriage, endless sickness and injury. His family settled in Seattle WA.
There he began playing the saxaphone at the age of 12, guitar at the age of 13, bass and drums at 14 and vocals subsequently. All the while engaging in frequent writing of lyrics and poetry.
At a staggering 6'10" tall by the age of 16, people had hoped to see him engage in athletics, namely Basketball. He is quoted as saying," Why, again, is it so important to throw a ball through a hole?"
These times were marked by an inward struggle between the spiritual and secular. Either way he went there was always music and words.
After High School he struggled to adapt to the regular flow of life. Experimenting with alcohol and drugs earlier on had become full on addiction. He was known to support his habits playing and singing on University Way in Seattle.
Finding intermittent stability Trevor began to travel first via hitchhiking, then by means of traveling sales jobs. Spending time in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oklahoma, Iowa, Illinois among other locals, his love was the south. Managing to stay as long as possible he would return to New Orleans often.
In 2000, after many weary years on the road, Trevor checked into a rehabilitation center in Jackson, MS. There he began a redemptive journey back to his first love, Music. Though it took some slips, and trying times, he was able to walk away from his demons and return to pursue his dreams.
Known for stints in various acts such as, Bucknuckle, Hail, Tribe, and a short bass playing foray in Callbox, Trevor has a variety of experience in many musical genres. This shines through in his latest work which highlights his versatility in writing and performing.
Beginning production in January of 2007, Trevor R Todd has been writing, arranging, and recording his new album-A Scathing Indictment Of The Righteous.
