A Sunderland musician’s latest album has gone down a storm with blues fans across the country, beating the likes of Ed Sheeran to top spot in the charts. Trevor Sewell’s new album, ‘Calling Nashville’, has picked up a serious amount of traction after featuring on Radio 2’s Paul Jones show.

Thank you Rosy Greer for the great review of CALLING NASHVILLE

W139 PSDThis is Trevor Sewell’s fifth CD in as many years, but with a very different Americana flavour. Award winning singer, songwriter and guitarist, Trevor hails from the Northeast of the UK, but has great popularity in the US. The album was produced in Nashville and included guests Janis Ian, Tracy Nelson, Vickie Carrico, and Sean O’Bryan Smith.

All the tracks are self penned and the track ‘Shadows’ , featuring Janis Ian on piano, was released as a single.

The first track ‘Someday’ has a country rock flavour with a sprinkling of bluegrass and what a great start to this excellent album. Following, with shades of Tom Waits, was ‘Mountains Of Gold’ a slow ballad with moving lyrics.

‘Fade To Grey’ showcased Janis Ian on piano who joined Trevor on excellent vocals. A lovely track with a light jazz feel. Next, Americana at its best with ‘Matter Of Time’ and some fantastic guitar work on this.

Tracy Nelson joined Trevor on vocals for ‘Long Time Ago’ a slow country blues. Then moving on to an excellent classic blues shuffle with ‘You Ain’t What I’m Looking For’, with superb guitar work again and added brass giving a full on sound.

‘Tear It Down’ is violin led, with more of a country influence , while ‘Stand Next To Him’ is stomp and holler classic Nashville, with violin and banjo, what a great track.

A melodic country ballad with ‘The Way You Are’ has lovely lyrics and great vocals from Trevor. Plenty of variety of vocal input, almost leaning to gospel, on ‘Blanket Of Hope’ with a happy clappy feel with Cajon overtones.

The final track on this exceptional album is the haunting ‘Shadows’. Previously released as a single it is piano led by Janis Ian with Trevor on vocals. A beautiful end to this really well put together album.

Trevor Sewell has continued to grow in stature, embracing a variety of genres with his distinctive gravel tones and diversity of guitar playing styles. The album, although not blues in the religious sense, has the feel of the southern states and brings Americana to the fore. An excellent listen and well recommended.
