Javier Trejo

What does Javier Trejo’s music sound like? It depends on the audience. Whether playing ska and reggae for thousands of festival-goers or crooning country & western ballads to an after-work blue-collar crowd, Trejo’s sound is distinctive and original. He is a singers’ singer, and a songwriters’ songwriter. Javier Trejo embodies what it is to be a Mexican growing up in the Midwest. Javier Trejo’s music is Mexican/Americana.

Singer/songwriter Javier Trejo was born in Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico, and raised on St. Paul, Minnesota’s west side. Trejo’s musical influences range from old-school country and Tejano music to R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll. His self-titled album presents Bossa Pop original songs inspired by the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Jerry Garcia, Manu Chao, Arto Lindsay, Flaming Lips, David Gray, and RL Burnside. His songs transcend genres to create an intimate sound that seduces the listener.
