Award-winning Sunderland songwriter Trevor Sewell was thrilled when he discovered his latest project involved working with an artist from the same city.
But despite both living in Sunderland, the musicians are from opposite sides of the Atlantic, as blues artist Wildcat O’Halloran hails from Sunderland, Massachusetts. The pair have never met, but were introduced on Les Young’s radio show, Wall to Wall Blues, where they were both featured artists.
It was there that Wildcat heard Trevor’s track Hate Me for a Reason and approached him about recording his own version of the song.

Sewell is rapidly gaining support in the area and his debut in Los Angeles may well be timed to coincide with Grammys week and the Artists In Music Awards where he is listed in the final list of 5 nominees in the Best Blues Artist Category.

Calling Your Name Album Review.
Trevor has been hugely successful with this release, reaching no 1 on the American Blues Scene Chart, but not only doing that, staying there for seven weeks in a row. Very impressive stuff. The Future is looking very bright for Trevor and he is arranging a string of UK tour dates for around late august / September time…not sure of the actual dates yet, but will keep you updated on the site. If your a fan of the blues, or even a rock fan with blues tendencies like me I strongly suggest that you buy this album and place this work of superb song writing and performing excellence where it belongs , permanently embedded in your cd drive.
