TREVOR NELSON is one of those DJs who’s pedigree doesn’t only come from playing the music, but his incredible passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of the artists he supports. First and foremost you get the feeling that Trevor is a fan and that clearly translates in the shows he presents, the albums he curates and the live shows he performs.
And you can see for yourself as Trevor is set to play two dates here in South Wales next January.
With a career that has spanned decades and genres, Trevor Nelson holds an irrefutable cornerstone in UK music history. From his very beginnings on London pirate radio nurturing what would become Kiss FM, through to his work on The Soul Show and his prime-time BBC Radio 1/ R1 Extra weekend stints, Trevor has introduced listeners across the nation to cutting-edge sounds from the worlds of Soul, R&B, Reggae and beyond.
If you need any proof as to just how much of a ‘music fan’ Trevor is, you just need to look at his sitting room record collection.
Immediately identifiable as a much-loved presenting personality too, Trevor joined the ranks of MTV in 1998 to host their flagship R&B show ‘The Lick’ for 11 years on MTV Base (which remains the channel’s longest running show to date), whilst also being granted the honour of hosting the first ever MTV Africa Awards from Abuja in Nigeria.
A hugely successful DJ both in the studio and behind the decks, Trevor has released a number of hit compilation albums including: INCredible Sound of Trevor Nelson, The Soul Nation, several “Lick” compilations, The Trevor Nelson Collection, and most recently his Trevor Nelson Club Classics.
In recognition of his years of dedicated service to the music he has committed his life to, Trevor has won numerous plaudits throughout his career including 4 MOBOS, the Special Gold Lifetime Achievement award for his services to broadcasting at the 2010 Sony Radio Academy Awards, and even an MBE for his work with the millennium volunteers.
A true music enthusiast to the last, Trevor Nelson Soul Nation will see the DJ sharing his passion in the live arena. Sure to feature an inimitable blend of sleek and sultry records with soul as lifted from the past three decades of his career, Trevor will be keeping the dance floor bouncing all night long at these unmissable shows.
