Trevor Menear is the son of radio personality, Kevin Matthews. He was born in Grand Rapids, MI and moved to Chicago with his family at a young age. Trevor began playing guitar at age 10 and then played the House of Blues in Chicago at 13.
Menear was offered three musical scholarships and chose to attend the University of Tennessee, where he studied for one semester before returning to Chicago to become more involved with his music and the Chicago music scene. In addition to writing and playing music, Menear has experimented with producing his own tracks. His cover of “John Sinclair” was recorded with an antique Meissner 9-1065 78 rpm record lathe, which records directly onto a vinyl record."
