Trevor began his musical journey as vocalist from an early age. Says Trevor, "When I wasn't talking, I was singing." In his later teenaged years, he began to work with vocal coaches to become the classical trained singer he is today. His one of a kind voice has earned him rave reviews in concert.
His senior kindergarten teacher remarked on one of his report cards that the five-year-old Trevor would imitate the songs that the class sang together on the classroom piano. Just four years later, at the age of nine, he expressed interest in taking formal music lessons to learn how to play an electronic keyboard that he was gifted. He began his lessons, but his teacher soon made the suggestion that he begin learning the piano.
A member of the Lutheran Church from the age of seven, Trevor became fascinated by the organ. He recalls, "I wasn't really interested in what was happening at the front of the church. I spent most of my time looking behind me and up to the balcony at the organist at the organ console." At the age of t thirteen, the organist allowed him to try the organ and through her mentoring and his own instruction, he learned how to play it. This has led him to accompany worship at many churches, accumulating in over two decades as a a church musician.
A lifelong Christian, the church and his faith has been a major influence on his musicality. Although he has experience other genres of music, it is fitting that he founded Trevor Hicks Compositions, his self-publishing company to distribute his sacred music "for all God's people" to use in worship. "My goal is to bring my varied musical experiences and interests into the field of sacred music."
Trevor's long-awaited debut album Soul of a Patriot was released on December 31, 2021, featuring fully orchestrated renditions of eight hymns and four anthems from his catalog. Entirely self-produced, the album was proceeded by three singles: "No Greater Love," Trevor's highly acclaimed setting of "In Flanders Fields," and "A Cross of Steel That Cannot Be Felled," Trevor's hymn commemorating the twentieth anniversary of 9/11. A second album is in production, entitled For All God's People, and is expected in in December 2023.
