Trevor Sloan is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto. Described as “slyly intricate with ethereal touches,” his music infuses intimate vocals with acoustic instruments and old synths. He hints at singer-songwriters of the 60s and 70s but with an intriguingly modern twist. Full of artful symbolism and mindful contemplation, his songs are often balanced with images from everyday life. Dusk Among the Plum Trees is the fifth album under his own name but Trevor has been writing and recording music for over ten years, previously releasing six LPs under the name Phono d’enfant.
