About Trevor Ras

Music for the Soul

Trevor Ras

Catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics and his soulful saxophone blend with a penchant for funky beats and campfire sing-a-longs, giving Trevor Ras a unique style- one that lands him comfortably between Van Morrison and Jack Johnson, Ed Sheeren, and Crosby, Still, Nash and Young.

The music harkens back to a much simpler time, when digital gimmicks were no match for groove, melody, lyrics and a great hook. And while the recording and songwriting are strongly rooted in the present, the vibe suggests you're listening to John Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane" for the first time or watching the sunset, singing along to your favorite Van Morrison tune.

Trevor Ras is no stranger to the music industry. Originally from Seattle, he spent most of his formative musical years based in Portland, OR as a sideman and saxophone player, touring up and down the I?5 corridor with regional acts like Big Time Rosie, Life After Liftoff and Jesus Presley.

During his time in Portland, he played for President Clinton, opened for and played with Steve Miller, Bo Diddley, Fishbone, Pink Martini, the Clumsy Lovers, Tony Furtado, The Iguanas, Rubberneck and many, many more. He also spent several years in L.A., touring with national up and comer, Justin Hopkins and the Guilt while daylighting as a music publicist in Hollywood. He currently plays saxophone and keyboards with Seattle's Radio Raheem while playing solo and duo gigs throughout the Northwest.
