Trey Roque – Singer-Songwriter

SOUNDS LIKE – A party where Joni Mitchell, Bowie, Elvis Costello, Lou Reed and Lera Lynn swap stories through songs.

In any event, Trey’s DNA is hard-wired to the 45rpm-school of hitting ‘em hard and leaving ‘em wanting more. Just listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube – the whole shebang – and find out for yourself.

NEW MUSIC FOR 2019 – 2018 was a big year for Trey – with a star-crossed love affair and 161 songs to show for it. This means through 2019, Trey will be releasing (at least!) one song per week in demo form on YouTube, and will launch a double album of haunting ballads titled “Intimate Letters”. Subscribe and hit the notifications bell to stay tuned!

SONGWRITING CLASSES – Music is to be shared, and there should be no secrets in making it. To this end, Trey’s been running songwriting workshops – helping beginners achieve their dream of writing a song.

2019 will also see his alternate YouTube channel “Trey’s Way” which truly opens the kimono on what songwriting really means. An open kimono?! That’s gotta be worth seeing, right?

BOOKING – If you run house concerts, a coffee shop, gallery or festival – drop him an email. Let's make a show!

Follow – And don't forget to Like this Facebook band page for news on new releases and shows. Subscribe to his Instagram, YouTube channel and Spotify playlists. In the words of Geddy lee, “Tell your friends!”

BTW, it's R-O-Q-U-E, as in 'rock'.....

Trey’s Valentine's Day Special! 

Hello, music lovers! 

Wether you love it, hate it or just plain ‘meh’ it, Valentine’s came and went in a flurry of rose petals and sloppy displays of public affection. 

Personally, we at team Trey love it! Any excuse for a bit of romance – as Trey’s tunes will attest. 

Meanwhile, we offered our own spin on this thing called lurve, by way of 3 fab new songs. You can catch them all on YouTube. 

  • BEFORE YOU FORGET ME – the heartbreaking song Trey penned this time last year, that inspired the INTIMATE…

Something wicked this way comes... New BIG ASS Tune Drops on Valentine's Day! 

Anyone who's seen Trey play his rock music set will remember this eerily passionate tune replete with creepy lyrics.

Well, now you gets to hear the song come to life via the studio, via a nasty garage whence it was recorded. But which tune will it be?

The week after this drops, another garage demo goes live on YouTube + Facebook + IGTV. Here's the social media handles, should you want to hear Uber-catchy rock songs crackling with Trey's vim and wit.

THE MAGUS – now on YouTube! 

Hello Music Lovers! 

This week’s cut is THE MAGUS, and it is indeed a deep cut. When we say ‘deep’, we mean deep. Like when Rutger Hauer furrows his brow at the end of Blade Runner. Yup! THAT deep. 

THE MAGUS was inspired reading John Fowles’ book of the same name, set in the 1950s on a remote Greek island. Trey (ahem!) borrows from a passage in it, as Fowles could write landscapes in a way lost by writers today. You can feel the lizard heat baked through the soles of your shoes on a cold November night…
