Trevor Andrew a.k.a “Trouble Andrew” is an artist, a designer, a personality and a music and snowboarding icon. Born in Nova Scotia, Canada, Trevor’s passion for snowboarding led him to relocate to Whistler, BC and eventually compete at events such as X-Games and the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics.
Trevor has made a name for himself in both the mainstream and underground circuit by pushing the boundaries and the sport through his strong presence at world class competitions and features in top snowboard films (Mack Dawg Productions, Absinthe Films, Whiteout Films).
After suffering a knee injury in 2004, his broad talents reached the music industry where he wrote and co-produced his first album “Trouble Andrew,” which was later re-released by Virgin Records in 2009. Now currently living in Brooklyn, Trouble spends his time from studio to studio, city to Mountains, traveling around the world snowboarding and performing his music.
Mr. Andrew just released a free, compilation style album with everything from Electro Punk sounds, to Rap, No Wave and Country all in one. Titled, “The Trouble Gang Mixtape,” which received 100,000 downloads in the first week, features Spankrock, Santigold, Lil Jon, Stunnaman (The Pack), Jackie Chain, Curren$y, Diplo and more. Trouble Andrew is about to release the highly anticipated album, “Dreams of a Troubled Man,” coming late March.
Electric Visual and Trouble Andrew will put their passions together to create a new realm of iconic signature pieces that will showcase the birth right of a new era at Electric. In 2011, Trouble will have a sunglass color way, a goggle color way and, in 2012, the Trouble Andrew Signature Sunglass.
“Kip Arnette is a true visionary, I have always been a fan of his work… It was rad to work one on one with him getting creative. We had 4 new Trouble signature glasses and goggle designs on the table in like 10 minutes of us brainstorming. We are on the same channel. So stoked to be part of the Electric Family.”
March is a huge month for Trouble Andrew as he also releases his second studio album. Mashing up his post Punk, Electro, Pop influences, the album Dreams of a Troubled Man drops on March 29th. The band will perform at South By Southwest on Thursday, March 17th with legends FISHBONE & The Wu-Tang Clan, plus Yelawolf and an Erykah Badu DJ set at The Austin Music Hall.
