Trevor Sewell may be better known for his Blues Rock based material but this new instrumental album has been coming for a long time and it shows a completely different side to the British Guitarist.

Online PR News – 22-October-2012 –Trevor Sewell takes time out to release a purely instrumental album entitled Surf, Spies and Film Noir.
“It’s an album I’ve been meaning to make for a very long time and the influences are plain to see it’s my tribute, as the title suggests, to the darker side of Surf, Inspirational American Directors and Film Noir”
The album which was written, recorded and produced in a 6 week period at the beginning of the year, pays tribute to a plethora of artists such as Dick Dale, The Safaris, The Ventures and of course Duane Eddy and features ten Trevor Sewell original instrumentals.
“It was a great opportunity for me to work once again with Nicky Forbes (aka Rocky Rhythm) and Vince Santini both formerly of Revillos fame, who guest on a couple of the tracks. “
The album’s tone, which is atmospheric, mysterious and filmic has already attracted much interest from the music supervisor community with the appeal to music licensing execs being blatantly obvious and having two tracks already shortlisted for films even before completion of the album bodes well for its future.
“I’ve had numerous enquiries from music supervisors from both sides of the Atlantic and although the album was conceived more as a labour of love I’m of course very keen to talk sync opportunities with interested parties. I can be contacted through my website http://trevorsewell.com
Sewell was a member of the Revillos along with Santini and Forbes in the 1980’s and the band who achieved chart success in the U.K always included an instrumental on their albums.
‘We did a reunion gig in London about 3 years ago to mark the launch of Nickys best selling book The Rhythm Method: Sex Drums and Rock’n’Roll. Vince Ray also put in an appearance at the gig in Londons Denmark Street which was great fun and absolutely packed out. It sort of reminded me about the project which I had had on the backburner for such a long time.”
The album Surf, Spies and Film Noir was released this week on CDBaby and is available online at all of the usual outlets iTunes, Amazon etc.
“The biggest problem I had was choosing the tracks as I just had too much material so it looks like I’ll be doing another one next year once we finish recording the new Trevor Sewell Band Album.”
It certainly looks like another busy year ahead for Trevor who said:
“This year has just been hectic but I love it when it’s like that and we’ll be out on the road more next year with the Trevor Sewell Band. I think the next instrumental album will feature a few very special guests so I’ll probably have to record it in chunks to fit in with everyone’s schedules and I’m very much looking forward to it!”.
