Biography

"I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others."
-James Taylor

The above quote encapsulates everything that I aspire to be as a musician. Only through music have I truly been able to come to terms with the things in my (albeit young) life that have been difficult and trying.

...I have been performing as long as I can remember, but actually started taking music lessons when I was five. My instrument of choice was the guitar, and from there I've never looked back. For about the last 6-7 years, I've been writing original music and incorporating various covers into my repertoire. In that time, I've played with different bands and groups of musicians, but ultimately I never found them to be as passionate about music as I was, so I've branched out on my own as a solo artist, and right now I'm living the dream.

To list all the individual hardships and tough times I've experience here would be unproductive, but suffice it to say I've been in the lowest of low places. However, I've been able to pull myself out of that place and shift focus to the opportunities that exist for me me in the here & now.

Currently, I'm booking gigs, traveling around the general northeast Ohio area, and continuing to write and record. I love to play, and any chance to share my passion and material with an audience is one worth taking, as far as I'm concerned.

I hope to see you on the journey.

Lyrics

(When You're Gone) I'll Be Missing You

Written By: Trent Pryor

Still I wish I could see you
As the summer passes by
And all the things you're going through
Forced you to say goodbye
Can't help but think of all
The times I've shared with you
Just sittin on the front porch swing
No one but me and you
There's plenty of reasons for you to go
But before you turn away
I just thought I'd let you know
I'll be missing you when you're gone
From the time the sun sets
To sunrise at dawn
I wonder what you're thinking
What you'll do
Just know that when you're gone
I'll be missing you
I wish I could hear your voice
As the moment passed away
I know somehow I'll make it through
If I can do without the way
There's plenty of reasons for you to go
But before you turn away
I just thought I'd let you know
I'll be missing you when you're gone
From the time the sun sets
To sunrise at dawn
I wonder what you're thinking
What you'll do
Just know that when you're gone
I'll be missing you
(guitar solo)
I'll be missing you when you're gone
From the time the sun sets
To sunrise at dawn
I wonder what you're thinking
What you'll do
Just know that when you're gone
Yeah when you're gone
I'll be missing you
