HOT on the heels of multiple-award nominations in the U.S., Millfield musician Trevor Sewell has now started to make waves in his home territory.
He is 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 four nominations on both sides of the pond, while spending seven weeks at the Number 1 spot on the American Blues Scene Chart.
Calling Your Name is Trevor’s first album since going solo 18 months ago and he is in the studio recording a new acoustic album, while working on new material for the follow up to the Calling Your Name album.
A collectors CD is also being released by Austrian-based W.A.R records.
The limited-edition album will feature all of the Calling Your Name Album plus four 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)
Trevor said: “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.
