Trevor's Bio

Born into a musical family on an army base in Texas during Vietnam, Marty developed into a bright intense young man with strong spiritual leanings and a deep reverence for the earth, people, healing and peace, after traveling to Washington to participate in mass demonstrations protesting the first gulf war he moved to Poland for a short time in 1997. The overseas adventure left an indelible mark on the then fledgling songwriter, deepening his understanding of the world and changing his writing forever. Of this journey Marty says “I visited a war museum, & saw the very very poor, watched the best new Jazz I had ever seen. It showed me that we can do anything we want”

As a multi-instrumentalist (he plays guitar, slide, harmonica, as well as some base and mandolin) Marty has played in several bands and with international recording artist Jeff White, lending both his guitar and drum prowess and his surprisingly earthy and open vocals. In 2003 he released a live album “Red Hot Daisy Juice” with the band “Mot Mot” (much to the delight of the bands fans). 'Beneath the Tree's' released in 2005 has garnered exceptional response, positive reviews, and internet and college radio play. 'Troubled Times' his latest released in 2009 is doing just as well and gathering quite a following.

He has collaborated with several emerging artists in the US and Canada and continues playing out on a regular basis in Minnesota and Wisconsin. His fan base is growing and as it does he is forming a warm inviting bond with his live audiences, often taking time to engage fans after shows in one to one conversations about instruments and music. Of this relaxed relationship with listeners Marty says, “Music is, was and every shall be all about bringing people together. Our world is way too separated and even if we can all get together for just a few hours then that’s helping. I guess...and I’m in love with being on stage.”

QUOTES

"..a bit understated...refreshing....Kind’ve like Springsteen or Neil Young. Excellent Performances here.”- David Seitz (Grammy winning producer. Worked with Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Buckley, Aqualung, Michelle Shocked.)

Trevor Marty is a talented folk musician out of Rochester, Minnesota, and this acoustic ditty, "Grow Slow," is sweetly dedicated to the Emperor Penguins, in the hopes that we can collectively end the loss of their natural habitat. The fact that director Jack Norton shot the video in the rural Oak Center General Store adds to the rustic, natural charms of the number. "Grow Slow" is a new single from Marty, who plans to officially release the track in the near future. --City Pages ‘Must See Videos’ Last wk in 10 of 2014

"Beneath The Trees" is a refreshing acoustic gem, I've been playing the song "Twice" on a repeat in my old truck's CD player...it's a perfect soundtrack to a Midwestern day.”- Conductor Jack Norton (Published writer)

"Overall, Marty's passion for music boosts him up a notch and it is apparent in his work. It's not everyday that someone can make you believe in their love of music, and he does so with remarkable ease and grace." – Marina Agerter (The Duluth Readers Weekly)

"...an amazing musician ...one of those rare people who has a wonderful heart and is able to share it through music that speaks to the soul." - Katie McRoberts (Rochester Downtown Alliance & Music Festival)

"Trevor Marty is a pleasure to work with...A class performer/artist. I know I'm gonna have a good show when I see Trev on the bill." - Jordan Van Hook (Professional Sound Engineer)
