Williams, Trevor

Vibraphonist and Composer


Trevor Williams is a vibraphonist and composer who performs extensively as a bandleader and sideman.

After playing piano at an early age followed by drums in his teens, Trevor gravitated towards mallet percussion as a natural combination of both. He holds a Bachelors of Music in jazz performance from Western Connecticut State and a Masters of Music in composition from the University of Texas at Austin. While in school, Trevor performed with Mike Stern, Terry Gibbs, Bob Mintzer, Brian Lynch, and Dave Samuels (Trevor’s former mentor), and played the North Sea and Montreux Jazz Festivals.

Although Trevor’s professional career has focused on jazz vibraphone, he also performs and records with rock, pop, r&b, ska, electronic and classical musicians, reflecting his wide range of musical interests.

A Connecticut native, Trevor now lives in Virginia. Since moving there in 2013, Trevor has shared the stage with John D’earth, Hod O’Brien, Stephanie Nakasian, Butch Taylor, Vince Lewis, Jonah Kane-West, Gina Sobel, and Jen Tal. He is currently working on his first album, a collection of original compositions, due out in 2016.
