ABOUT THE ARTIST
Trey L. Sorrells, a native of Portsmouth, VA, is a saxophonist and music teacher based in Washington DC. His passion for the instrument, inspiration for his powerful and soulful sound and love of music began in the church at an early age ultimately driving him to pursue music as a full-time career. Sorrells, a Bachelor of Music, received his degree from Virginia Commonwealth University where he concentrated solely on the jazz art form under the direction of Skip Gailes and J.C. Kuhl. While in attendance, he received numerous honors and awards including the John F. Kennedy Jr. Jazz Scholarship and had the pleasure of serving as a member of the International Jazz Exchange Program with the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa on multiple occasions. Through the Jazz Program mentorship and exposure to various jazz artists, such as Dick Oatts, Boris Koslov, Bob Mintzer, and John Abrecrombie, Trey discovered his love of the hard-bop style of jazz music which allowed him to discover his own personal sound.
Currently, Sorrells holds the saxophone position in Richmond based band, Future Prospect. As an emerging band on the scene, Future Prospect has already begun to make its mark with its high-energy and intricate sound. In 2016, they released their debut album The Climb on the Ropeadope Recording Label which peaked at #6 on the iTunes Jazz Charts. In their short time as a band, they have had the pleasure of backing a plethora of noteworthy artists and opening for internationally acclaimed artists and bands. This includes names such as Jon Bibbs, Kia Bennett, Sam Reed, Braxton Cook, Butcher Brown, No BS Brass Band, Galactic, Kneebody, amongst others.
Since making the DC Metropolitan area a base in his career, Sorrells has had the pleasure of working with the Jogo Project under the direction of Elijah Balbed, Donvonte McCoy, Deborah Bond, Mark Meadows, Tim Whalen, the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra, Thad Jones Big Band, among many others. Currently, Sorrells maintains a private teaching studio of piano and saxophone with students consisting of all ages. He is also in process of recording Future Prospect’s second studio album which is set to release in Summer 2018 on the Ropeadope Record Label. Trey is pleased to be a part of the D’Addario family as a D’Addario Woodwind Artist, exclusively endorsing their reeds, mouthpieces, and ligature products.
