We’re back with another installation of our latest series, TuneCore Tuesdays, where we highlight artists and other music professionals who are writing, recording, and hustling on their own terms. By showcasing creatives doing it their way all over the globe, TuneCore Tuesdays aims to empower and inspire our diverse community of artists.
This week we caught up with TuneCore recording artist and Grammy-nominated songwriter Trev Rich. Be sure to check out his video below where he brings us into what his journey has been like as an independent artist.
After leaving Cash Money Records back in 2016, Trev became an independent act and started putting his focus into songwriting and collaborating with other musicians, including Billboard-topping artist G-Eazy. From touring alongside Joe Budden across the country to participating in the coveted Atlanta “Revenge of the Dreamers III” sessions, Trev Rich’s charisma and passion for his artistry have proven his dedication to his craft. As a TuneCore artist, he embodies what it truly means to be IndependentAF.
One of the greatest milestones of Trev’s music career to date was when he recevied an Oscar nomination for his contribution to the DJ Khalil hit ‘Elevate’, alongside YBN Cordae and Denzel Curry off the ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ soundtrack in 2019. Since his big win, Trev has been featured on HipHopDX, HotNewHipHop, 2DopeBoyz, XXL, and more.
Today Trev has been putting in his creative focus into his upcoming album release, “Out of the Dark.” He has recently dropped his viral new single, “Lie A Lot,” in which he’s said in a statement “…is really coming from a place of comfortability and security with being numb, transitioning into my higher self. It’s just a piece of the story or my Great Awakening.”
Needless to say, it’s been quite a successful journey for Trev Rich thus far. We’re looking forward to seeing what else is in store for the highly ambitious TuneCore artist within the upcoming year.
