Trevor Exter


"The acid-banjo god of the cello"

Steven Bernstein (The Hot 9, Lounge Lizards, Levon Helm Band, Sex Mob)

“Singer and unconventional cellist Trevor Exter plucks and whacks at his big instrument and guides it through multiple climaxes.”

Time Out New York

“If you’re expecting a sedate orchestra recital, you’d better think again…. Exter’s crooning voice harkens back to an era of music where men weren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves.”

Chris Kocher, Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin

“…makes you feel like you found something you didn’t even know you were missing… Trevor Exter nails it.”
