Biography

Born and raised on the East Coast of Canada in Windsor, Nova Scotia, lil’ Trey (aka Trevor Andrew), age 9, dressed in his mother’s way-too-big hiking boots, wrapped in socks and taped into the bindings of a used snowboard he’d gotten his hands on (3 times his size). He was determined to conquer the slight and icy mountain at Martock, the local ski resort where his mom worked. Who could have known this boy was for real. He was well known around town for his inventive money-making ploys: selling rocks (that he’d find next to the train tracks), make-shift paintings, and brooms made of Golden Rod weeds door-to-door for $1 each.

As fate would have it, however, Trevor’s determination paid off (he later would get the word tattooed on his left forearm). Trevor is now one of the top-ranking snowboarders worldwide, sponsored by Burton snowboards, Analog clothing, Gravis footwear, and Oakley optics.
His repeated success at contests (4-time National Champion, 1st Place winner at Super Session Invitational – Stockholm Sweden, 1st Place at Innsbruck Air &Style – Innsbruck Austria,1st place Mt. Saint Anne World Cup) earned him a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team for both the1998 Winter Games in Nagano and the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, where he was the top ranking Canadian in the half pipe. He has been featured in films by most of the major snowboarding film companies, including Jamie Mosberg’s High Voltage Productions (Three Ring Circus, The Golden Circle Awards, 1999), Mike McIntyre’s Mack Dawg Productions (Amp, Stand and Deliver, Pulse), and Justin Hostynek’s Absinthe Films (Saturation, Pop).

And even when Trevor suffered a knee injury in 2004, and was forced to sit out much of the season, his determination led him to seek out new endeavors to conquer: Trevor discovered his musical talents. After receiving a guitar for his birthday, his musical interest was piqued. He taught himself some chords, bought a sampling machine, and began writing songs immediately. He even managed to contribute as a writer to several songs on his girlfriend, Santi White’s band, Stiffed’s debut album “Burned Again”, due to be released on NFL player, Trevor Pryce’s new label, Outlook Music (Fontana/Universal) this fall. By the time the 2005 snowboarding season rolled around, Trevor was not only ready to ride, he had recorded half of what would become his debut album, entitled, “Trouble” (a collaboration with New York-based production team, Shitake Monkey). The sound is a blend of synth/programmed beats, sk8 and punk rock, drawing from the musical influences from early in his life that Trevor associates with ‘80s sk8 and snowboard films.

The response has been amazing! He has placed songs in 6 snowboarding films to be released this year, and aroused interest from several major record labels. Trouble performed at Oakley’s SOHO, NY store opening in July ’05, and will perform at Wakefest in Toronto on August 11th. They will also be performing in NYC throughout the month of August, at Joe’s Pub, and a residency at Scenic in the Lower East Side.
