Known as the frontman, songwriter for rock favorite Thousand Foot Krutch, Trevor McNevan is set to unveil his eight-track EP, FIGHT MUSIK VOL. 1, under the moniker I AM THE STORM. The new recording is a diverse collection showcasing powerhouse songs with anthemic "get you up” hooks and aggressive, hard beats while also leveling a chill, nostalgic side that pays tribute to the roots of the hip-hop movement. The EP releases Sept. 14 to digital and streaming outlets everywhere through STORM MUSIK INC. and with management, marketing, sales and distribution through The Fuel Music and co-management through Paradigm Management.
McNevan, who has been writing songs for other artists under-the-radar and across multiple genres for many years, has always been inspired by his love of rhymes, beats and hip-hop. Recording a hip-hop album at 13 and again at 15 before launching TFK at 17-years-old, I AM THE STORM is less of a side step and more of a passion project for McNevan. With a remarkable range and ability as a vocalist, he is as ‘at home’ delivering full-on, in-your-face hard rock tantamount to TFK as he is spitting quick, acrobatic rhythms alongside intricate flows as an emcee with I AM THE STORM (#IATS).
“I love the early 90’s hip-hop – from the musicality to the importance and uniqueness of the flows, the delivery and rhyme patterns,” says McNevan. “It was so inspiring to dive into this new project, both creatively and holistically, exploring different things musically, vocally and lyrically. It’s a creative room in my house, that I haven’t invited anyone else into for a long time.”
