Trevor McSpadden’s voice doesn’t wash over you — it soaks into you, saturating right down to the heart. Honey-tinged and bourbon-mellowed, it’s a voice you want to curl up with on a lonely night; it’s a voice you want with you on the highway out of town; it’s a voice to be savored from your favorite bar stool. His songwriting goes down just as straight, and just as smooth. Tunes like “Better Off Alone” and “The Only Way” haunt you, while “Don’t Leave Yet” and “How Far Would We Fall” call you to the dance floor.
Raised in the Texas Hill Country and seasoned in the clubs of Chicago, McSpadden is a genuine country & western troubadour. He spent five years as the lead singer of Chicago’s most beloved country band, the Hoyle Brothers, before taking to the road as a solo act. Now working out of Southern California, McSpadden has teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Pete Anderson on a record slated for Spring 2016. His newest songs weave together the twang of his Texas roots and the grit of Chicago with California’s honky-tonk heritage. Like McSpadden himself, the collection is faithful to the eternal verities of the country tradition, but nothing if not original.
