We had the good fortune of connecting with Trent in the Trees and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Trent, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
personal freedom. being able to survive and thrive off of doing what I love. spreading love one person at a time. seeing everyone as a reflection of the Creator, offering universal peace. creating a song from nothing but a thought in my brain, then having it be a part of other peoples lives and emotions..that satisfies me. creation. when people tell me my music has helped them in any way, that makes me happy.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have abided by my own CEO mentality. Create Every Opportunity. I began playing shows 5 years ago, doing open mics at local coffee shops. Since then, I have never..I repeat NEVER turned down or missed a show. Through this tenacity and refusal to miss an opportunity I have progressed to a certain point..but I am no where near satisfied. I am just barely getting started getting started. I have always been confident that no one will outwork me. I am willing to look like an idiot and be uncomfortable. This is the key. Fuck other people’s opinions. even your family and close friends. If you want something bad enough then don’t let anyone even give you another opinion on it. Only yours matters.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
MJQ is my favorite club. we would go there to dance. Also connected to my favorite venue, Drunken Unicorn. Maybe I’ll be playing. If we are feeling the vibes we can go to Inman Park and smoke..maybe do some yoga. My favorite wings place is Wings R Us. Tassilis has my favorite healthy food. Aamar Indian on Fairlie St. Also the Halal place on Fairlie. Probably long board downtown or little 5. go shopping there for sure. I feel like I’m filling out a dating profile now. after that I’m tryna go to eav to get funky. oh my apartment is connected to the belt line..lets take some psychedelics and ride some bikes

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
The Tree of Life. I am nothing without Jesus. The peace of the Holy Spirit.
