A talented Singer, Songwriter, Producer and Musician, who brings fresh sounds, jazzy instrumentals, and arrangements, that seem to have no boundaries. Paul began to play instruments at the early age of six. He recorded his first single record with his father and two brothers, in which he was at that time referred to as “the little ball of fire”, because of his explosive persona. At the age fifteen, Paul explored the jazz arena, and played with the great pioneer, Jazz drummer Al (Tutti) Heath of the famous Heath Brothers.
Over the years Paul has released several albums. In 2001, Paul released his first solo album entitled “On a Glorious Journey” which garnered him a major distribution deal with Orpheus/EMI Records. In 2005 he released his 2nd CD titled ‘ “Compassion” which received great waves in Canada and the U.S’. In 2008 he released his 3rd CD titled ‘On Way Street’. His 4th CD ”Coolin On the 7th Day” garnered him a hit single, “It Means I Love Yah”. With overwhelming radio response this allowed him headline openings for noted artists such as Paul Taylor, Wayman Tisdale, Will Downing, Bobby Lyle, Tom Braxton, Phil Driscoll, Tim Bowman, The Stylistics, The Clark Sisters, Shirley Caesar, The Hawkins Family, Bobby Jones T.V. Show and much more.
It took two years after high school for Trey get on his feet. He got a job at a coffee shop. He found a stable place to live. He developed his songwriting and singing voice. He started booking local shows, and eventually he worked his way up to opening for the likes of Andy Allo, Nick Thomas, Andy Grammar and Andra Day. But it was Stokley Williams of the band Mint Condition who pulled him aside one night and said, “Trey, stay faithful. You need to know that people’s lives are connected to what you are doing. Stay purposeful and go get it.”
Today, with those words in mind, Trey strives to create intimate moments with his audiences during performances, through his music and in his life. In a world that becomes more fast-paced everyday, Trey strives to slow things down with his music. Through his intimate and simple compositions, his goal is to create a moment for the listener with each song.
