Born in The Bronx, New York his family moved to Hempstead, Long Island where he was raised since the age of 7. As a teenager he discovered his musical/acting talent’s and began to take professional lessons where he developed his craft performing in Theatre.
In Los Angeles, the actor worked on various commercials, television shows & feature films but it was his strong will, his professionalism and his unique voice that brought the artist to Stuttgart, Germany for the first time in 1997. Cast in the legendary musical production of Miss Saigon, it was there that he fast became – a name.
In 1999, after his success in Germany, Jackson returned to the U.S. where he had his first experiences as a solo artist. He also got a feel of the hardness of the music business.
He recognized his unique opportunity to start his career as a New York singer with his own musical style in Germany. With only $200. and his bags he returned to Stuttgart to work on his career and to realize his life dream.
With the death of his father 2004, the experience had a profound life altering positive impact on the singer. Drawing new power from his mourning and with this ignited fire inside of him the songwriter created his most inspirational song “Don’t Give Up / Love Yourself” in loving tribute to his late father. Jackson‘s extraordinary talent, professionalism and reputation generated a massive buzz earning him a lot of success in numerous domestic/foreign countries thus generating ensured international interest.
In 2009, Jackson worked on both the score and soundtrack on Germany’s No. #1 movie of the year “Die Welle (The Wave)” (Constantin Films, EMI Records).
That same year, Prince Albert II of Monaco, appointed the Stuttgart-based Soulstar as “Ambassador of Music for Germany in Monaco” and invited him to his international charity event “Nuit des Associations”. In the following year Jackson released his first debut solo album, “With My Very Last Breath”. 2011 Trevor Jackson performed at the Life Ball (Vienna) with Cheyene Jackson, co-star of America’s No. #1 television show “GLEE” (Fox).
A very special chemistry connects Trevor to the Munich-based fashion label HARTWICH. As the only female designer in all of Europe that design’s exclusively for men, Jackson not only wrote the theme song “Live Your Life” for the successful and critically acclaimed designer, but he also stands as the label’s brand ambassador and model. HARTWICH’s nationwide billboard campaign can be seen all over Germany but despite his success, the singer remains modest. He himself, sees his greatest achievement in the possibility to live his life dream and realize his creativity – with Discipline, Talent and Passion.
