About Trevor Daniel:
Almost a year after the release of his debut EP, Homesick, the 25-year-old reached number one on the US Viral 50 with the project’s first single “Falling” — a track that entered Top 40 in over 20 countries, reaching a new peak at #4 on U.S. Pop Radio and #18 on Billboard Hot 100. Trevor’s ethereal vocals over a trap-infused downbeat already primed listeners for the repeat button. However, it was Daniel’s lyrical prowess that sparked their imagination. Soon, pop sensation Blackbear and R&B darling Summer Walker sought to remix the track. Trevor’s “Falling” went on to become RIAA Certified 2x Platinum. Now at the helm of a debut major release, Nicotine (Alamo/Interscope Records), the young artist is seeking to solidify his position as a mainstay music maker.
In 2017, the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey compelled Daniel to evacuate the only home he ever knew, with just the essentials- his music equipment.
When he returned to a house flooded in chest deep water, he was determined more than ever to indulge in his passion for music with this second chance that life had bestowed upon him. He quit his day job at a men’s suits store. This resulted in the creation of the musical genius that we know and love.
Today, Daniel’s following continues to grow rapidly.
