Trenton was raised in St. Louis, Missouri. He started with piano lessons from his grandmother, took a heavy interest in the blues thanks to his uncle, and was then enchanted by jazz harmony and rhythm in high school. While studying at UNT he was named Downbeat Magazine’s Undergraduate Vocalist of the Year (2012), after submitting a live recording of an original composition. Alongside the Jazz Singers, he performed at the Lincoln Center in Washington D.C. with the Manhattan Transfer, Jon Hendrix, and Afro Blue of NBC’s “The Sing-Off”. He also sang as a part of Ben Folds’ orchestral tour on 3 separate occasions. After graduating, Trenton began working for one of Hal Leonard Publishing’s foremost choral arrangers as a production assistant. While singing for recordings of arrangements there, he became connected with Dallas’ storied jingle singer community, and has since recorded frequently with various studios in the area including T.M. Studios and Axcess. He also taught Contemporary Voice at Collin College for two years. His students there have gone on to become artists in their own right, tackling the music scene head on. While there, he also had the chance to take several of his students to sing as a part of a choir backing Sarah Brightman, of “Phantom of the Opera” fame. Trenton has been a band leader with The Royal Dukes band for the past 5 years. The band plays all variety of pop, rock and soul music. You might also hear him at a steakhouse crooning Billy Joel or jazz standards, or with his guitar at an outdoor festival playing the Temptations. Recently he was featured in front of the McKinney Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert tribute to Michael Buble. Trenton and his wife, Marisol, moved to Flower Mound in 2021 and had their first child in 2022. They are happy to be a part of this strong community where families are fostered well. Trenton believes that education, and music education in particular, will help this community continue to flourish.
