Trevor Wilson is a brooklyn-based composer and songwriter, most recently known for the alternative vocal harmonies and song structures employed in his Vocal Ensemble. In 2011, he formed the ensemble, which currently includes Michael Chinworth, Eliza McKelway, Alice Tolan-Mee, and Ethan Woods. They all met at Bennington College, and currently live in Brooklyn.
The ensemble released their album Soft Wings in March of 2012. (One could say) their work is aesthetically aligned with groups like the Dirty Projectors, Mountain Man, and Joanna Newsom. They combine five part harmonies with simple nylon guitar riffs, with some elements of fantasy and dramatics.
Since their formation, they have enjoyed a growing following in NYC, performing in venues such as The Clocktower Gallery, Glasslands, WNYC’s Green Space, and Joe’s Pub. Their Summer’s End Tour has taken them through new frontiers, from New England to Detroit, Chicago, and Indiana. Since being back in NYC, they’ve been reaching new audiences, with many performances, as well as working on recording their second full-length, All Material.
