“DFM’s resident poet gets in yer face and stays in your head. Lancaster’s next hidden gem” Philip Cowles, Diversity FM

“Now I’m not big on poems, but this lad held my attention from start to finish. Trevor’s fast paced style is addictive to the senses and left you wanting more. The rest of the performers sat and watched as a new talent showed them what hard work and thought can do. A shining light in the doldrums of poetry” Bryan Dickinson, Big Tree Productions
