Model Citizen: Trevor Drury
I was scouted when in Germany on vacation. Three weeks later I was in NYC as a professional model. The modelling experience has been amazing, but on top of modelling, I am also a musician. Singer songwriter to be exact. I was a musician before a model, so I'm constantly balancing those two lives. I achieved pretty success with a Tom Ford show/campaign, and I've got an album coming out called "A Year Of My Life"-- it's an album that describes my experience as a model: falling in love, independence, coming of age, etc. Anyone that wants to keep in touch with my music and modelling endeavours can find me at www.officialtrevordrury.com or follow me on Instagram @trevordrury55.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Trevor. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I see the world in an interesting way, and for a while, I felt alienated by that, but I found that writing music was therapeutic. People heard my songs and connected with them, which allowed me to connect with them. I find by embracing that I can live in a world that I enjoy more. My music makes people feel, and my modelling life makes me feel.
Trevor, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I was randomly scouted in Germany. At the time, I was in school. I enjoyed it but knew that I wanted to experience something else, so when modelling came around, I took the opportunity. Modeling affords me a lot of time to think and process things in my mind, so I've thought a lot about passion and aspiration. I find that I want to be happy and authentic, and express honest emotions through my music. I want to be the best musician and most honest artist I can be.
Who is your inspiration in life Trevor? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration on a surface level is people like Elvis Presley, Harry Styles, or Radiohead. But to keep inspired I focus on myself, meditating and, staying honest about how I feel at that moment. It's in a mind state like that where songs reveal themselves, so inspiration , to me, is just another form of honesty that's being expressed interestingly. I think that's why we find those people interesting, they are honestly expressing themselves... READ MORE
