Trevor Stott Drops Song Fueled by Existential Angst, “Halfway in the Night”

“I wrote most of this song while waiting to go on stage for a writers’ night in Nashville, feeling full of existential angst. I was nervous as hell, I kept getting up in the hallway and pacing, and I started thinking, ‘What the hell is wrong with me that I want to do something dumb like go and be a musician?’ That’s not really what the song is ‘about’, per se. I think it’s about walking out in a cold wind and being lost and having no way home. And being pissed off about it at someone. At everyone. At you.

Sounding a bit like a mix between Bruce Springsteen, The Gaslight Anthem, and The Killers is singer-songwriter Trevor Stott. The singer-songwriter is out with his debut solo record called “Halfway in the Night.” One of Rock the Pigeon’s favorite tracks from that record, released in January 2019, is the title track that the singer wrote while waiting to perform in Nashville. The song combines strong folky vocals, emotional lyrics, and incredible instrumentation that feels very inspired by classic rock. The song is high-energy but also has a hint of sorrow meshed into it. “Halfway in the Night” contains catchy vocal melodies and vibrant electric guitars. The song definitely carries the spirit of rock n’ roll into 2019. “Halway in the Night” is a very strong first release for Trevor Stott. It can be enjoyed on Spotify:

“I love songwriting. It gives me this feeling like I’m pulling something out of the ether of my unconscious, ya know? When you create something, it feels like you get in touch with a part of yourself that you didn’t know was there.”
– Trevor Stott
