“It’s his impassioned delivery and everyman poetics that are leading him on a steady rise…“When Tammy Spoke to Martha”, speaks to the young musician’s idiosyncratic sound, something that’s not quite folk, not nearly rock. There’s subtle torment in the interplay of the guitar and piano, the sort of pain that comes just from living”
Consequence of Sound

 “It’s clear that Sensor’s got a similar spark to that of Dylan, in terms of penning poetry while being influenced by the troubles of the day, not to mention his guitar technique.”

Trevor Sensor is pleased to announce his new EP, Starved Nights of Saturday Stars, is out August 5 on Jagjaguwar via Inertia Music. Today, he debuts his new video, “When Tammy Spoke to Martha” via Consequence of Sound. On the heels of releasing his debut EP, Texas Girls and Jesus Christ, and wrapping up his first ever North American tour in support of British folk-rock trio, The Staves, Sensor is poised to have a breakout year.

The Illinois-born 22-year-old singer/songwriter tells Consequence of Sound, “For the video, I wanted to take the opportunity to laugh at the struggles of an artist that I myself have experienced, as well as others. Trying to get someone to laugh at a joke, emotionally connect to a song, or get engaged by a piece of prose that you’ve made is a very difficult thing. All you can hope for is that enough people start to dig what you do to assert a societal pressure that your work should be thought about and given the respect and acclaim that you in your own, little head think it deserves. This is how it always happens — it’s a giant snowball effect that will either bless you or won’t occur at all.”

An English major with an affinity for writers ranging from Marcel Proust to Dave Eggers, Sensor crafts lyrical atmospheres stuffed with confessional lines that leave a mark and visual allusions that aren’t easily shaken.

“If I’m trying to do anything, it’s to be sincere,” Sensor 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.”

All vinyl EPs include a “Jagjaguwar Reader’s Companion” which features the short story All Your Pretty, Drunk Words written by Trevor Sensor.
