From the first moments of Trevor Sensor's debut EP for Jagjaguwar, Texas Girls and Jesus Christ, the young Illinois-born singer/songwriter's distinctive burr of a voice sounds aged decades beyond his years. Starved Nights of Saturday Stars, Trevor's first physical release, follows suit, with timeless-sounding melodies and a sense of songwriting that exudes maturity while still feeling fresh. Sensor composes songs that sound deeply felt and from a place of truth and honesty. "If I'm trying to do anything, it's to be sincere," he says about his songwriting approach. "A lot of singer/songwriters today are oriented in irony. It's cooler to be lackadaisical rather than to try to be compelling."
