Known as the frontman, songwriter for rock favorite Thousand Foot Krutch, Trevor McNevan is set to unveil his eight-track EP, FIGHT MUSIK VOL. 1, under the moniker I AM THE STORM. The new recording is a diverse collection showcasing powerhouse songs with anthemic “get you up” hooks and aggressive, hard beats while also leveling a chill, nostalgic side that pays tribute to the roots of the hip-hop movement. The EP releases Sept. 14 to digital and streaming outlets everywhere with management, marketing, sales and distribution through The Fuel Music and STORM MUSIK INC. and co-management through Paradigm Management.
McNevan, who has been writing songs for other artists under-the-radar and across multiple genres for many years, has always been inspired by his love of rhymes, beats and hip-hop. Recording a hip-hop album at 13 and again at 15 before launching TFK at 17-years-old, I AM THE STORM is the next chapter in Trevor’s musical journey.
“It was so inspiring to dive into this new project, both creatively and holistically, exploring different things musically, vocally and lyrically,” says McNevan. “It’s a creative room in my house that I haven’t invited anyone else into for a long time.”
As the early hip-hop movement poured into the heart and soul of this Peterborough, Ontario-based teenager, McNevan hopes I AM THE STORM (#iamthestorm) can be a “statement that we could all use and an antidote to speak to our own mountains, obstacles, fears, addictions, hurts, pain and rejections. It’s more about knowing that you’re in the center of your storm, where there is complete peace and tranquility as you face all the conditions that storms tend to bring and overwhelm in your life.”
The first single from FIGHT MUSIK VOL. 1, “These Lines” (#theselines), is available now at Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon.com and more through the link, https://the-fuel-music.lnk.to/IATSTheseLines.
More I AM THE STORM news and information can be found now on McNevan’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, with I AM THE STORM’s own website (#IATS), social media and YouTube pages to be launched soon.
