New song "Anywhile" released June 26, 2020
Trevor and The Joneses are an indie psychedelic folk punk alternative garage hard rock and roll headphone music band that coagulated in Las Vegas, NV, USA in early 2012. Released on 12/22/12 their critically acclaimed first album There Was Lightning is a catchy exploration through many styles of guitar rock. Starting with punk influenced opener "Dig This!" and ending with psychedelic noise mess "Superslow," all of your rock and roll bases are covered.
Following hundreds of shows, a vinyl release on Plane Groovy Records(a label that also features The Zombies), indie/college radio play for 9/10 Lightning tracks, and opening slots for notable/influential artists, 2nd album Take You to Stay was released 10/01/17. Stay is an experimental departure for the band in several ways features many different instruments than its predecessor, new member John Fallon (of The Steppes) on bass, and it was recorded/improvised mostly at Joe's house. It contains songs the band had previously debuted at concerts: keyboard-pop jam "Squares," catchy jangle-rocker "Well as Well" dark-psyche head-nodder "Gotta Run" as well as in-studio experiments such as teeth-grinding "Breaking Bones," eerie instrumental "Meteors" and title track "Take You to Stay" which features Barnaby Gallagher on the sitar. A video for the garage rock "On My Mind" was released to coincide with the album. The band is currently and continuously recording impending albums.
"…invokes memories of the glory days of rock n’ roll—very engaging, with the right amount of grit. If you haven’t picked this up, you are missing out…"
-Nick Kuzmack, SLUG Magazine
"Praise Jesus 12-String Christ for the fury and temerity of nasty, grimy, paisley-printed rock ’n’ roll. The kind of garage rock that Trevor and The Joneses play unabashedly, unpoetically, almost rudely if it weren’t so goddamn inspiring, the kind of rock ’n’ roll that makes you feel jacked up, not offended on the sonic level…Lightning is a testament to its own genre, a commentary as much as a proclamation…"
-Max Plenke, Las Vegas Citylife
"★★★★ Most bands working in the psychedelic tradition sound alike, as if cribbing the same records. However, this Vegas group sonically acknowledges owning a Flaming Lips disc. In opener “Dig This,” frontman Trevor Jones boasts about being odd rocker out: If that’s what passes for music/Well, then dig this. Recorded at Brian Garth’s now-defunct Chrome Werewolf studio, Lightning strikes hard, fast, delivering 10 loose, melodic tracks. “Grooving at the Speed of Light” will reaffirm your love of music. "
-Jaret Keene, Vegas Seven
