The Highlight from the Singer-Songwriter’s Homesick EP is Quickly Gaining Viral Traction, Earning Tens of Thousands of Streams Per Day
“Laid back vocals, catchy percussion and washed-out atmospheres tie his productions together, and – along with raw talent – are the reason (Trevor Daniel) has already earned tens of millions of plays across platforms.” – EDM.com
“Trevor Daniel has been a favorite up and comer of ours for a while now. The Texas kid just has such an incredible, undeniable sound that I can’t get enough of.” – Fashionably-Early
“(Daniel’s) songwriting skills are phenomenal, and he has the kind of sound that draws you in immediately.” – The Plug Society
The ideal avatar for Internet Money‘s industry-conquering ambitions, Houston singer-songwriter Trevor Daniel‘s lovelorn vocals and sharp writing enhance and complement his rich instrumentals. Coming through with his first-ever music video, Trevor Daniel shares “Falling.” Featuring a textured instrumental from Internet Money founder Taz Taylor, along with co-producers Charlie Handsome and KC Supreme, “Falling” bursts with intimate detail, combining gently plucked acoustic guitars with swells of bass synth, as Trevor Daniel displays the breadth of his talents with infectious melodic runs and cockeyed harmonies. Premiered by HYPEBEAST, the new video for “Falling” is a hallucinatory epic, following Trevor on a neon-lit journey through planes of reality, as he’s accompanied by a woman who either loves him…or wants to kill him. Or both.
Quickly rising in popularity on streaming services such as Spotify, where it surpassed the 1 million plays mark last week, and inspiring user-generated content on Instagram and TikTok, “Falling” is the breakout hit from Trevor’s recent EP Homesick. Premiered by Complex and featured in HYPEBEAST, the song is quickly gaining viral status, earning tens of thousands of streams per day across platforms. A mature and infectious six-pack of yearning and emotionally open tracks, Trevor Daniel exhibits on the new EP the makings of a future star, stretching syllables to increase the emotional impact of his dramatic and romantic lyrics, and using his expert sense of rhythm to give his love songs a conversational quality. Throughout the tape, Trevor has an excellent co-pilot in Taz Taylor, who gifts Daniel with expansive and lush backing tracks, offering ear-catching counter-melodies with flecks of guitar or chiming bells, filling out the low-end with cavernous swaths of bass synths, and spurring forward momentum with his expert command of hi-hats and 808s.
Fresh off a fast-selling tour with Yung Pinch, Trevor Daniel is the first signee to Internet Money Records, the new partnership between rising producer Taz Taylor and Alamo Records. A game-changing company in digital music, Taz Taylor started Internet Money as a beat-making company and collective through which producers could make beats and sell them a-la-carte to artists. As Internet Money grew, Taz Taylor became a well-respected songwriter and producer, signing a publishing deal with APG, shaping the sound of countless rising stars, producing four tracks on Lil Skies’ chart-topping Life of a Dark Rose, crafting the instrumental for the late XXXTentacion’s platinum-selling “Fuck Love” featuring Trippie Redd, and reaching #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 with Rich The Kid’s “Plug Walk.”.

Trevor Daniel Background:
Trevor Daniel began as a bedroom musician that now has since reached more than 20 million people. Based in Houston, the singer’s music is a gestalt of his influences. He is a fan of that 808’s Kanye-Drake-Cudi wave, Y2K Techno, and his city’s Chopped & Screwed trademark. With the voice, the melodic production, and heartfelt songwriting, Trevor thrives. The first act signed to Taz Taylor’s Internet Money Records broadcasts his life in sound and verse.
Taz Taylor/Internet Money Records:
A real boss moves in silence. For as loud as his influence resounds throughout hip-hop at large, multiplatinum producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Taz Taylor operates from behind-the-scenes. In that respect, he harks back to the genre’s game-changing production mavericks of the nineties and early 21st century. At the same time, he brings a fresh sense of melody to each tune often punctuated by live instrumentation. In 2018, his record label Internet Money signed a joint venture agreement with Alamo and Interscope. You may not recognize his face, but you’ll know his style…
