Legendary Producer/Engineer Stuart Epps (Led Zep, Elton John, Bill Wyman)
“I’ve only just met this brilliant musician but i can tell you he is the real thing. Heart felt, passionate and truly excellent rock/blues guitar playing and singing. Comparable with some of the greats I’ve had the pleasure to work with.Two of them called Lee, Albert Lee and Alvin Lee.”Trevor is in my opinion from the same mould he gives rock/blues a new boost. You’ve just got to love it!!!”
Barry Tomes. Gotham Records:
“I knew when I signed Brooke Nickerson to the label. I had a artist with the potential of Bonnie Raitt. I knew I would need a song writer and producer of the same quality. I found that in Trevor Sewell”
