Ones to Watch: Trevor Powers of Youth Lagoon

Meet Trevor Powers, a 22 year old singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from from Boise, Idaho.  His voice and lyrics speak for itself in decibles beyond the music.  There is a certain trouble in this young man's heart that he seems to be working out with his music, and through the reverberating echoes of his voice his songs scratch on the very frosted windows of all the unanswerable questions of the universe - all with a raw, lo-fi romanticism. In that frailty and rawness Powers kind of reminds me of the romantic poet John Keats, and Power's first album a sort of post-modern, 21st century Ode to Solitude. Powers' debut album, The Year of Hibernation, is expected to drop May 11th on Juno Beach Records. The album is comprised of eight beautiful, nostalgic and angst laden arrangements.
