West Coast Flavor
Trevor Dahl comes from Portland, Oregon, a hotbed of musical creativity, no wonder he realised he likes to write and sing. By sixth grade Trevor had already written his first song, a love ballad of course. Trevor’s dad used to play guitar, so he grew up surrounded by music, and taught himself to play loads of instruments and record his own songs. Trevor said “I’ve always wanted to impress girls – write long songs for them – “Look what I wrote you….” He says he probably wrote at least 40 love songs about his feelings for girls before he realised he could write anything else, a true romantic girls.
Plug In Begins
As for Plug In Stereo, Trevor says it all started three years ago in his bedroom , he was in what he called a “hardcore” band in high school, and started Plug In Stereo almost as a test to see if he could write sensitive romantic songs…and could he ever! As for the other band “We were called Genosa,” said Trevor, “We didn’t even win our high school battle of the bands!”

What He Wants Us to Know…
Trevor told a magazine what he wants:"right now, the only thing I want in life is for people to hear my music," says Dahl. "I grew up playing in bands, but was tired of the fake, closed-minded attitudes that a lot of kids my age shared. I always had my solo/acoustic music on the side, so as I got older, my style and sound changed to a more honest and organic approach."
