DaSilva has already made a mark in the industry; and is poised to become a power player.
Produced by Mike Flanders, the CD features 13 original songs, all penned by FINLAY. “Sandpaper & Bourbon” showcases TREVOR’s lyric writing abilities, his innovative guitar playing and the “gravity and rasp” of his vocals.
TREVOR’s previous career included releasing 4 studio albums and touring incessantly all over the world (from Canada coast to coast to Australia, parts of the US and Europe), opening for big-named acts (like James Brown, Kid Rock, John Hiatt, Johnny Winter and Booker T. and the MG’s just to name a few), earning awards and nominations (Real Blues Magazine 11th Annual Awards – Best Canadian Blues/Rock Artist, Best Canadian Blues Band/Central, Top Canadian Blues Guitarist; Toronto Blues Society’s MBA for “Male Vocalist of the Year”; Toronto Blues Society’s MBA for “New Artist of the Year”), and becoming a regular guest on several popular morning radio shows.
Filmmaker Stacey K. Black began work on a documentary and named it after one of TREVOR’s songs – “Send My Mail To Nashville”. Calling it her ‘love letter to Nashville’, the film follows songwriters on their journey to and from Nashville, TREVOR being one of five songwriters that she follows and interviews. The movie started making the rounds at festivals and is set for release in the very near future.
As a guitarist, FINLAY plays for 80’s pop icon Tiffany, making guest appearances on the singer’s album “A Million Miles” as well as her CD entitled “Rose Tattoo”. TREVOR also co-wrote the first track on “A Million Miles”, a song called “Cry”.
