FRESH: ‘The Way You Move’ – Trey Connor

Trey Connor likes “The Way You Move”

Trey Connor is a 23-year-old modern Indie artist from a small town near Detroit/Flint MI. with established roots in rock music. At 15, Trey formed and fronted the Modern Rock band Bulletproof Snow and in the next few years, wrote and released two EP’s “Punished For My Innocence” and “Here We Come”. The band also received various awards, including the 2015 Detroit Music Awards People’s Choice Award for Trey’s song “Here We Come” (2015).

Trey’s musical tastes were also changing and, in the spring of 2015, while searching for a more mainstream pop/rock sound, he discovered award winning producer Tommee Profitt, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After graduating high school, Trey was eager to begin working with Profitt, when his plans were changed by an invitation to attend Season ten casting finals for The Voice. Despite filming and rehearsing at Universal Studios for an extended period, Trey never did appear on the show as teams filled up before he could perform his “BLIND AUDITION” for celebrity coaches.

After his experience with “The Voice”, Trey was finally able to reconnect with Profitt and went on to record/release his solo debut single “Hold On” (2016) and related EP, “While Everything Is Now”. Facing the challenges of essentially starting over again, Trey continued his musical journey with his September 2018 relocation to Austin TX and September 2019 completion of debut full length album “Horizons” scheduled for release early 2020. Recent releases include the sophomore single, “Fear”, “Lost In You” (both 2019), and most recently, “Heavy To Hold”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
