Southern Alberta’s Gentle Giant of Country Music
Often referred to as Southern Alberta’s Gentle Giant of Country Music, Trevor Panczak has been writing, singing and performing since he was 14 years old. Now, with over one thousand performances under his belt, Trevor has released his new CD titled ‘Roll On‘, working with industry moguls Mike Clute (Nashville producer), Steve Bogard (songwriter), and Ron Sakamoto (promoter).
Trevor recently accomplished a Canadian first by advancing to the National final of the 26th annual Colgate Country Showdown in Nashville, Tennessee.
He was one of 5 finalists from Americas largest Country Music talent search and competed for the $100,000 dollar prize January 24th 2008 at the historic Ryman Auditorium. Trevor placed second. “I felt like a winner just being there, what an honor to sing on the Ryman stage,” says Panczak.
He has opened for many acts including Ian Tyson, Dan Seals, Aaron Lines, Julian Austin, George Canyon, Jimmy Rankin, & Keith Urban. Describing his style, the “gentle giant” uses clever lyrics and laid back humour to capture audiences’ hearts wherever he performs. A popular local “celebrity”, Trevor has never wavered from his small town values and upbringing. He is continuously partnering with local charities to ensure the betterment of their communities. $1 from each Roll On album sale is donated to the Ronald McDonald House children’s charity.
