Legendary Producer/Engineer Stuart Epps (Led Zep, Elton John, Bill Wyman)

“I’ve only just met this brilliant musician but i can tell you he is the real thing. Heart felt, passionate and truly excellent rock/blues guitar playing and singing. Comparable with some of the greats I’ve had the pleasure to work with.Two of them called Lee, Albert Lee and Alvin Lee.”Trevor is in my opinion from the same mould he gives rock/blues a new boost. You’ve just got to love it!!!”

Barry Tomes. Gotham Records:

“I knew when I signed Brooke Nickerson to the label. I had a artist with the potential of Bonnie Raitt. I knew I would need a song writer and producer of the same quality. I found that in Trevor Sewell”


Lyrics

Where the Wild Ones Go

Written By: Trevor Sewell

Where the Wild Ones Go [Trevor Sewell]
From across the room - I could see her smile
I couldn't tell what she was thinkin’
so I said what would it take to make you mine
she said you really wanna know
I said yeh - she said
take me where the wild ones go
Where the wild ones go
Where the wild ones ride
Take me to edge - n let me look over the side
yeh I really want to know
Where do the wild ones go?
You know I looked straight in her eyes
and she looked right back into mine
she didnt give away a thing
I couldn’t see what lay behind
I said it's time for us to go
she said - take me where the wild ones go
Where the wild ones go
Where the wild ones ride
take me to edge - n let me look over the side
yeh I really want to know
Where do the wild ones go?

Don't Need Nobody

Written By: Trevor Sewell

Don't Need Nobody [Trevor Sewell]
Don’t need nobody
don’t need no one
don’t need nobody else
to rely on
I’m more than happy
in my solitude
and you cant make me do
what I don’t want to
look around
I’ll tell you what you see
someone who don’t want you round here
listen to me please - don’t look at me that way
it’s a known condition
it’s not hard to see
that being away from you
was just the best thing for me
and i just cant work out
how it took so long
for me to realize that once you were gone
I’d be a different man
in a better place
now turn yourself around
and get out of my face
I'm goin’ to the station
I’m gonna fly away
cos i don’t see no reason
for me to stay
it’s been a long time comin’
but its worth the wait
just to see that look
disappear from your face
I’m gonna buy a ticket
to anywhere I please
that’s destination anywhere - single one way please
oh please!

Condemned

Written By: Trevor Sewell

Condemned [Trevor Sewell]
There's a light comin’ thro the window
but it cant break thro my darkness
in my hour of need
I need much more than this
trials and speculation
what’s it all been for
taken such a toll on me
I cant think straight no more.
am I condemned to live the life that others make for me
condemned to follow paths that lie in front of me
condemned to follow rules that have no meaning for me
am I that condemned man?
No - I will not have this happen to me.
Now I've heard all the rumours
An I’m an angry man today
but I make this anger work for me
I will not let you take my dreams away
I will not live the life that others make for me
I will not follow paths that lie in front of me
I will not follow rules that have no meaning for me
I will not let this happen to me
There's a light comin’ thro the window
tho it cant break thro my darkness
but you have cast this shadow over me
too many times
---
trials and speculation
what’s it all been for
taken such a toll on me
I can’t think straight no more.
am I condemned to live the life that others make for me
There's a light comin thro the window
but it cant break thro my darkness
and in my hour of need
I need much more than this

Hundred Years

Written By: Trevor Sewell

A Hundred Years

A hundred years - a hundred years
a hundred years since that day
a hundred years, a hundred years
since the man was born to show the way

I never knew you
I never met you
but I feel I know you just the same
and you roll on - just like the river
n' everybody knows you're name

like the mississippi
everybody knows you're name

Chorus
A hundred years....

The road is long - the road is long
We never know just what's round the bend
and when I'm gone - Lord when I'm gone - well maybe
I'll see you at the Crossroads my friend

Chorus
A hundred years....
(Rollin on like the river)
(Rollin on like the river)
everybody knows your name - everybody
(Rollin on like the river)

See you at the Crossroads
