Blues, gospel, funk, folk and soul - music that speaks from the heart, to the heart. These are the styles Trevor Jalla grew up on, raised in a musical family and taught piano by his mother at the age of 5. He picked up the guitar at 8, and since then has grown to love the guitar sounds of BB King, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Jimmie Vaughan and T-Bone Walker, the soulful vocals of Otis Redding, The Holmes Brothers and Al Green, the funky grooves of The Meters and James Brown, and the songs of James Taylor, Keb' Mo' and Kris Kristofferson.
