Trevor explains the creative process behind The Other Side:
"I wrote The Other Side about feeling a lot of pressure to quit music - that I had been struggling along for years and not feeling enough love to keep it going. And music is the only thing keeping me away from the other side of working in something that I'm not passionate about."
"I'm frustrated with the business behind music and how much control the labels still have over the landscape, how people act like snakes to get into the spotlight, and how you need to know someone and be endorsed for people to give you a shot. I'm making music that matters and the difference is clear to me. There's a lot of crap out there and I just want my shot."
