Singer-songwriter Trevor Drury just released a haunting new version of Elvis’ “Blue Christmas.”
Born in Tucson, raised in San Diego, Trevor started piano lessons when he was eight-years-old. Later, he studied vocal performance at San Diego State University and BIMM. Presently based in London, he is currently working on an EP, Alice, It’s All In Your Head, with Grammy winning producer Marc Swersky and Grammy nominated Mark Needham.
Along with his musical career, Trevor is an international model who has appeared in Details Magazine, working alongside designers like Hermes, Robert Geller, Timo Weiland, Malan Breton, Tom Ford, and Mac Cosmetics. Repped by Ken Harvey Management, New York Models, Elite Models, Sight Models, Core Models, D’Man, and State Models in L.A., Trevor has traveled the world and writes about music and modeling for Backstage Magazine.
Trevor’s alt-pop sound amalgamates flavors of pop, soul, and R&B into smoothly polished music embodying scrumptiously descriptive lyricism and stylish tones from the piano.
“Blue Christmas” opens on a graceful resonant piano accompanied by Trevor’s mellow, eloquent voice. As the bass line and soft percussion enter, the tune takes on a creamy, sparkling flow, coruscating with silky textured strings and bright accents from a chime. The swell of the harmonics infuses the music with wafting undulations of melancholy.
Trevor’s voice, cap-a-pie velvety and evocative, exudes tiny hooks of deliciously hued timbres, imbuing the lyrics with pathos, tenderness, lingering desire, and nostalgia.
“I’ll have a Blue Christmas without you / I’ll be so blue just thinking about you / Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree / Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me / And when those blue snowflakes start falling / That’s when those blue memories start calling.”
On “Blue Christmas,” Trevor Drury dishes up a wonderfully captivating rendition of an iconic song.
