Trevor Christensen has been a musician for 20 years, releasing triumphant electronic-pop as Said the Sky since 2014. Freshly signed to friend and collaborator Illenium’s Kasaya and 12Tone Music, he’s exploring his limitless potential, blending the lofty melodies of hits “Rush Over Me,” “All I Got” and “Where’d U Go” with the pop-punk energy of his youth.
He learned piano as a child and studied at Berklee College of Music. When he wasn’t in class, he was in his dorm watching videos about sound design. After two semesters, he moved back into his mom’s basement, got a full time job and two part-time gigs. Every spare second was spent crafting melody-driven electronic sing-alongs.
He met mixing and mastering engineer Chris Cox who introduced him to Nick Miller, aka ILLENIUM. They've shared massive hits and helped each other explore the frontier of live electronic performance. Christensen loves the feeling of being in a band, and warping the tremolo effect of his Fender Rhodes on stereo speakers installed in his closet, or sticking a microphone above the hammers to catch the mechanical sounds, he’s inspired to inject more of the ephemeral into his music.
“We Know Who We Are” with Olivver the Kid captures that with acoustic riffs, lilting piano and Kid’s specific storytelling. The two have worked on a slew of new songs, just part of the body of work Christensen is set to release. It’s a new chapter in an exciting story that is far from new but in so many ways has only just begun.
