Trevor Sensor is a Delta-influenced small-town American crafting songs about what’s going on in our world right now…
In one of the last scenes from the Coen brother’s “Inside Llewyn Davis”, the lead character utters the pithy remark “If it was never new, and it never gets old, then it’s a folk song.” On that basis alone, Trevor Sensor writes folks songs.
Folk songs of some repute as well it must be said. Now signed with Jagjaguwar, the E.P. Texas Girls and Jesus Christ comes out in the UK on March 25th 2016. Dylan & Waits are obvious influences but Bright Eyes is certainly a valid comparison too.
With that painful growl, heavy subject matters and stripped down set-up, the omnipotent enquiries into the of authenticity of the artist are bound to emerge, especially from the gig weary, cynical city crowds. Sensor is philosophical about his position.”A lot of singer/songwriters today are oriented in irony. It’s cooler to be lackadaisical rather than to try to be compelling. But, If I’m trying to do anything, it’s to be sincere.”
Tough to argue with…
