Being a man of purpose. Being a man of God. Being a man who lives with passion and direction in everything he does.
Hailing from the cityscapes of Rochester, Michigan (just north of Detroit), recording artist Trey Simon has been hitting the ground in the music realm since 2012 and has been captivating ears with his dynamic Soul and Pop sound that has defined his artistic merit, as well as his image as an artist fast on the rise. His sound and persona is best described as authentic, original, passionate, determined, timeless and professional. He has an insatiable knack for fashion and speaking to the public on passionate topics based on his life story: Blended Culture, Urban/Suburban Life, Homelessness, Children of Divorced Parents, and Unity through Music.
Trey began playing the guitar after finding a dusty old acoustic Gibson guitar under his uncle’s bed. He was soon addicted to the sound, the tone and the art. It was his vacation, his escape and his focus. As his musicianship developed so did his writing style and technique. He has always had a natural gift for writing lyrics and through his dark places in his life, his ability to write sincere songs about hope and love was born.
Since his inception into the music world, Trey has had the opportunity to grace the stage and open for national industry greats such as Andy Allo, Nick Thomas, Andy Grammar, Andra Day and Stokely, lead singer for the ultra Talented R&B Band Mint Condition. Soul, Pop, Gospel, R&B and Rock are all sounds heard at a Trey Simon show. With every performance the audience will hear influences by an eclectic group of National and Legendary artists Influencers; John Legend, Nat King Cole, Sam Smith, Stevie Wonder, BB King, John Mayer, etc. The list is extensive.
Trey’s hometown has shown their love for his music through a sold out show at The Historic Cliff Bells, a packed house performance at the beautiful 20 Front Street, many appearances on “Live in the D” and WDIV Channel 4 and a host of festivals and concerts.
Trey Simon released his debut “What The Future Holds” in 2014 that did well locally as a promotional EP. Now currently working on his next project, he’s in the studio with Grammy Award Winning engineer, Quentin Dinnard, and also with Grammy Award Winning co-writer, Ashlie Rose (Tattoo). The project is s slated for release in 2018. Trey Simon’s highly anticipated EP has received positive reception among the industry and music community collectively and will be competitive in the marketplace.
Trey is on a mission to ignite unity in the name of timeless music that makes an impact of love, romance, hope, change and triumph.
