Alberta born 7 farm raised, Trevor Panczak has worked passionately to
become the entertainer he is today. He is a talented writer & vocalist
but what brings it all together under his cowboy hat & out of his 6’4”
frame is his natural ability to connect with an audience. His laid back
humor, smooth voice & charming stage presence will leave a lasting
He is real | He is local | He is Canadian Country!
He ain’t whistling Dixie. Fun comes first and foremost on the upbeat
and celebratory Everything I Love, as anyone who’s heard the leadoff
single Rock It Country Girl knows. Driven by a lightly funky hick hop
groove, laced with a twangy guitar lick and a plucky banjo hook, and
topped with cheeky lyrics like “All that caboose on your choo choo
train ’bout knocked me off my tractor,” the song — co written with
frequent collaborator Derek Ruttan and Nashville ace Jim Beavers —
sets the tone and tempo for the 12 song disc. Make no mistake; from
the southern friend country honk of Get a Little Wrong Tonight to the
afternoon‐delight ode Way Too Pretty and the twangy shuffle Friends
of Mine, this is an album that knows how to crank the guitar and kick
up its heels.
