Trevor Lawrence had the great fortune of being born into an especially musically gifted family. Trevor Lawrence's father, Trevor Sr., is one of the world’s most renowned tenor saxophonists and horn arrangers. On the other hand, mother Lynda was a member of both Wonderlove (Stevie Wonder's backup group) and The Supremes. As if that weren’t a enough of a blessing, Trevor Lawrence is the grandson of gospel songwriter/producer/lead vocalist Ira Tucker. Clearly, young Trevor was destined for success in the music industry.

Also known as TrevBeats, Trevor Lawrence is one of R&B and hip hop's most popular drummers. He has played with many top artists such as Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie, Dizzy Gillespie, Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez, Taj Mahal, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Macy Gray, The Temptations, and his own TrevBeats Band. His self-proclaimed career highlight was playing with Stevie Wonder in front of a million people at Live 8 in Philadelphia.
