Hot on the tail of multiple nominations in the U.S Trevor Sewell has now started to make waves in his home territory – the UK. He is currently nominated in the British Blues Awards for ‘Best Original Blues Song’ for his song ‘Hate Me for a Reason’. The track is taken from his ‘Calling Your Name’ album which has to date amassed 4 separate nominations both in the U.S and U.K.
Calling Your Name is Trevor’s first album since going solo 18 months ago and he is currently in the studio recording a new acoustic Album while working on new material for the next electric follow up to the Calling Your Name album.
A collectors CD is also due for release at the end of April from Austrian based W.A.R records. The limited edition album will feature all of the Calling Your Name Album plus 4 bonus tracks.
One of the bonus tracks is a duet specially written and recorded for the project and features Lorraine Crosby (best known for being the lead voice on the Meatloaf hit – I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that)
“I’ve always wanted to record with Lorraine as I believe she is one of the best vocalists this country has produced in recent years, I played some dates with her in Germany a few years ago and working with her again in the studio was just great – I’d like to think we may do some more in the future”.
Trevor has just been confirmed for the Maryport Blues Festival and will be playing a series of UK gigs throughout the summer.
