Trevor Jones (real name Trevor Piggott) is a British Folk-Pop Singer Songwriter, from Cambridge, UK. With heartfelt lyrics, passionate vocals, and an honest emotive delivery. Originally from Walthamstow, London, Trevor has been writing songs and playing live concerts since he was 12 years old, winning his first talent contest at 13.
Trevor is an accomplished guitarist, with a distinctive finger style playing technique, born from many years playing in acoustic bands and folk groups. At just 15 Trevor was a drummer for a commercial rock band culminating in supporting Suzi Quattro at The Royal Standard, Walthamstow. The 3 years spent playing drums only strengthened his rhythmic guitar playing, which he uses to good effect to this day. He was a founder member of the six-piece folk-rock group ‘Tear’, a multi-harmony vocal group, that played Glastonbury festival in ’97 and ’98 and the V festival in ’98.
He was part of a five piece harmony family folk group ‘Dragonfly’, with many live radio performances, with appearances at The Royal College of Music.
In 2007 Trevor began his solo career as a Singer Songwriter, and in 2009 was invited to Warsaw, Poland, to showcase for EMI music publishing. There, supported by EMI, he co-formed a Polish/UK pop rock band, “The Few”. The band immediately caught the attention of Universal Music Chairman; Andrzej Pucinski, who produced their first album at the prestigious Izabelin studios, Poland. That same year, The Few became finalists at the Top Trendy festival in Sopot, playing to a live tv audience of 2.9 million, which was a record number of viewers for the show.
Whilst in Poland, Trevor signed a publishing deal with No Problemo Music Publishing, and together with The Few, was commissioned to write songs for Polish TV. Trevor was later asked to write a song for Poland’s longest standing pop band ‘Papa D’ – ‘Out of This World’ was released on the album ‘Papa Loves Dance’ (Dec 2013, Fonografika).
Back in the UK, Trevor has recently embarked on a new creative partnership with Bianca Ross, a wonderfully talented singer songwriter from Australia. Within 6 weeks of meeting, they had co-written, recorded and released a song for the children’s charity Embrace CVoC, with a live performance at the Ricoh Arena in Birmingham (April 2019). Their song ‘ How Long’ can be downloaded here, with ALL proceeds going to Embrace.
