Trevor began his career in 1978 at the Cockpit Theatre in London playing the lead in Donald Swann's The Yeast Factory, and was described by Time Out as a skillful actor. He went on to a very successful production at the Old Vic, followed by work at the Royal Court, Albany empire and the Barbican Theatre in Plymouth. He graduated from Dartington College of Arts with a B.A. Hons in Music having studied voice, trombone, piano, electric bass and composition.
