Michigan-native Trevor Krehel has spent the last few years crafting his sound for his debut EP, “Let Go”. What started as a hobby with his brother, Palmer, writing and recording songs quickly turned into a passion. From recording in dorm closets and apartment bathrooms to turning their childhood bedrooms into a mini studio, the making of the EP was DIY start-to-finish.
Trevor’s love for acoustic and rock & roll intertwines throughout each song. Ranging from ukulele melodies on the title track, crunchy distortion in ‘Close to the Edge’, and big arena drums in ‘Better With You’, the EP highlights influences from a wide variety of singer-songwriters and modern rock artists (Ruston Kelly, Matt Maeson, James Bay, & Drew Holcomb). His live performances showcase the rawness behind each song. Stripped down to the bare essentials of a deep, haunting voice and dynamic guitar tone, Trevor gives listeners a preview of how each song came to be.
