Trey Connor (McLaughlin) is a 21-year-old pop/rock songwriter and guitarist from a small town near Detroit/Flint MI. Performing since age 13, he captivates audiences of all ages with crystal clear vocals and artful guitar work.
At age 15 Trey formed and fronted the Modern Rock band Bulletproof Snow and in the next few years, wrote and released two EP’s, “Punished For My Innocence” and “Here We Come”. Rising quickly, the band prevailed in several competitions receiving various awards, including the 2015 Detroit Music Awards People's Choice Award for Trey’s song “Here We Come”.
Interested in a more mainstream pop/rock sound, in the spring of 2015, Trey began searching for someone to produce his first solo project, and eventually discovered award winning producer Tommee Profitt, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
After graduating high school in 2015 Trey was eager to begin working with Profitt when his plans suddenly changed by an invitation to attend Season 10 casting finals for “The Voice”. However, he never appeared on the televised series as all team slots were filled before Trey had his chance to perform his “BLIND AUDITION" for celebrity coaches.
Reconnecting with Profitt after his experience with “The Voice”, Trey was finally able to record/release solo project in late 2016. The debut single “Hold On” (Nov. 2016) and related EP, “While Everything Is Now” (Dec. 2016) were followed with the “Hold On Music Video” (Aug. 2017).
Proud to hail from an area with such a famed musical history, Trey aims to add his name to the long list of nationally known talent and is hopeful to be one of the next big things rising up from “Motown”.
