Hi I'm Trevor. I'm a musician. I was on X-Factor 2 years ago. Many doors have been opened since. I'm part of a popular YouTube channel called O2L, and have my own YouTube channel at YouTube.com/Trevor. I just released a single two days ago called "XIAT." You can check it out here. Something funny about me: I snore really loudly, it's like the worst. And my favorite yummy treat would be a birthday cake milkshake.
I'm excited to answer your questions live from reddit HQ. AMA!
Update: I downloaded the official AMA app, so I'll answer more questions on the go if I can. Thanks for supporting XIAT and I enjoyed answering your questions! Love you!
Would you ever go on tour by yourself? Like just sing your music and covers? You totally should because i miss seeing you live
Yeah, of course!
I totally would. I'd love to bring my friends with me, because it would be boring to be on tour alone. But I'd perform solo.
What's your favorite type of cake?
Any ice cream cake. Chocolate ice cream cake.
Hi trevor what's your favorite candy?
Honeycomb. Chocolate honeycomb! You have to try it.
Where would you like to live when you grow up?
L.A. I think it's where all the opportunities are, and my job is there. I would like to live in NYC, for a little bit though.
Would you ever come to Saskatoon\Canada to try out tim hortons?
I've already tried it, I love it! I love any sort of cream-filled Tim Hortons donut. Everybody looks at me grossed out but I love those.
Do you feel like you gonna try to perform at as many new places as you can? It'll be literally amazing if you'll come to my country one day. Until then, would you follow me on my Twitter? It's @rotemroni4 I love you so so much Trevor❤️
Yeah, as many places as I can when I go on tour again!
Would you ever go to Gibraltar to meet fans? My cousin would kill to meet you.
I'd love to go someday.
Hey! I'm a huge fan of O2L!
I know you've done lots of Q&As in YouTube videos so I'm wondering what question you are asked most often, as well as what is your favourite question to answer?
And also (just to keep you on your toes..) would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 1000 duck-sized horses?
The most-asked question is "will you follow me on twitter?"
And my favorite question to answer is anything about my music.
Definitely the hundred duck-sized horses. Because the horse-sized duck - that's dangerous. That's like fighting a bear. And I could keep one of the horses. I could tell them "I'm not as bad as you think."
what was your favorite part of making the XIAT ep?
Writing it all, and having it be like my baby.
Hi trev! What do you think you'd be doing if it weren't for music and youtube?
I'd be in school - I mean, I am in school, but I'd have a normal life.
At what age did you realise how much you love music?
I don't think there was an age. I think it was always in me, but I had to discover it. For sure when I started doing musical theater. I was like 8.
What country do you really want to visit?
Australia. To see kangaroos!
who's the most annoying O2L member?
That's mean. I love them all. I guess I am!
Out the o2l boys who are you the closest to?
Probably Ricky? Because we talk about music. But all the guys, we all have a different thing we talk about.
how many chucks could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
Will you be at DigiFest Toronto on June 13??? If it's not decided yet, would you want to go??
I'd want to go. But it's not decided yet.
What's the weirdest fan experience you've ever had?
When my fans try to grab my butt? It's happened maybe 10 times. On tour, meet and greets, taking photos - they'll take a regular photo and then slowly slide their hand down to squeeze my ass! Not okay!
What was your favorite part about the X-Factor? Least favorite?
Favorite part about X-Factor was meeting the judges. And the very nice producers. My least favorite thing was how long everything took to actually do. I'd have to wait hours and hours for one shot, and then do it again.
Where would you go if you went on tour?
As many places as I can go.
what do you think of XIAT from you own point of view ? (it would be great if you followed me on twitter @liyanarozaini) i love you trevor and you literally slayed
My actual anxiety inspired the song. It's all based on my experiences. I think the song turned out really good, but obviously, I'm going to be hard on myself and think I can do better, but i know that this is it.
hey trevor !! im a big fan ans starter youtuber ! , i listen to your song echo every singke day! its stuck in my head! haha , dude ! would you ever do a video with me? i have a pretty good ask trevor video i would love to do!!!
Thank you for the support. Keep making videos. You never know, our paths may cross in the future!
Favorite apple store dance?
PS I'm at lunch so hii
Favorite Apple store dance was probably to Rebecca Black's Friday. And Hiiiiiiiii. Enjoy your lunch, don't choke! Chew slowly!
Who's your celebrity crush?
Everyone asks me this, I literally don't have one. You're a celebrity in MY heart.
are you planning on making a music video for XIAT?
Favorite YouTube channel other than yourself?
Shane Dawson... there are so many but he's the one who inspired me to start using YouTube.
Will you ever come to Europe again?
Yes, I am actually going there very "soon" again.
what's your favorite part of recording music?
I actually hate recording music. I hate recording but love performing. You have to get the perfect take for recording music, and I hate it. Performing live is so much easier on me, and i have more adrenaline.
Hey! I got to see you sing at Digitour 2013 in NYC (and i got to meet you all)! You really have an amazing live voice! What do you think about being around so many very talented singers/people in general? Did you have any mentors on the tour?
Thank you for seeing me! And I think it gets very challenging. But I stick with myself and try not to be like anyone else, and I pull through. My mentor was my mother. End of story.
Hey Trevor! A) make your way to Winnipeg, okay? B) if you're ever looking for someone to follow on Twitter, @heykaylahay is your person ;)
What other genres would you consider singing/performing other than pop?? I'm also your person if you decide you ever need a bassoonist! Hahaha
Have your parents always been supportive of your musical/internet endeavours?
If you had to pick one, would you rather be a gopher or an ostrich?
Thanks Trev! Much love xox
A) Eh? OK.
C) I'd love to do R&B. At first my parents were a little confused, tbh. And you wouldn't think it could be an actual career, you know? But they understand now.
Ostrich. So I could peck at people.
Is trevor live live?? Or is it filmed the day before?
We're working out so I can do it live on the road, but when I travel, it's prerecorded. But most of the time we try to do it live.
Do you like doing covers or singing your own music best?
Singing my own music, for sure, because people compare me so much to the artists I cover, and it makes me down on myself.
I saw you guys (O2L) live in SF earlier this year, and I wanted to know what's your favorite part of performing on stage? It looks so natural to you and you slayed in SF. I'm 16 and I can barely speak in front of a class, how do you do that? What makes it so enjoyable for you?
Forget everyone in the room. Focus on yourself rather on the other people. They may look like they have a negative look on their face, but they aren't focusing on you. They could be thinking about a million other things.
Do you guys prank each other in O2L? What's the craziest prank you can remember?
They always have the worst ways of waking me up.
Sharpie on my face... water in my hair... Whipped cream in my mouth... shaving cream in my ears... chewed gum back in my mouth... tbc
If you could perform anywhere, where would u go?
Hey, I have no idea who you are at all. I guess you're semi-famous, so what advice would you give to an aspiring musician? Would you be willing to listen to my music and give me critique?
That is okay. My advice for you would be unique, don't try to be like any other artists out there, because you're cool as heck by yourself. Like, being yourself. And I do suggest YouTube for putting things out there. Performing live isn't for everybody. You can practice until you get a cut you're comfortable with.
Are there any songs you recorded but are not on the ep?
weirdest youtube vid you'v come across?
I'll search something random and end up in some random part of YouTube where it's a snake eating a crocodile or something. Too hard to pick just one.
Would you ever do another cover like your nightingale one? It's one of my favorites! And also, I feel kinda bad for asking this but could you say I love you it'd make my day a whole lot better..
Maybe I'll do another cover like that. And yes, I love you.
Who's your favorite artist at the moment and why?
Lady Gaga, because she's always doing something different.
Trevor this is a wired question and don't answer it just read it it's fine. Can you one time do a follow spree when it's morning time for you? You're 10 hours earlier and I'm trying for ever but you always do it at 4am.. Please think about me next time I love you so much and just want you to notice me..
What's your twitter?
Would you ever do a music collab with Troye Sivan?
i finally get to see you again in seattle for slaybells and i'm so excited to see you perform again i love you and i cant wait:) are you going to perfect XIAT while youre on slaybells?
trevor answer A) would you ever move to canada? B) What kind of desktop/laptop do you have C) do you like coffee? ps. follow me on twitter my name is @XxKennedy.MoranxX
A) I don't think I'd live there but i would love to visit for a while.
B) Macbook pro 15"
C) I don't drink coffee...
Do you have a favorite song that you've recorded? Ilysm Trevor :)
Probably Slay. Or Now or Never.
Do you plan on auditioning for the X-factor again? I love you! And if you do, I wish you the best of luck!
It's literally impossible because the show got canceled. But if it was still around, most likely no.
Whats the craziest thing you've ever done? And I'm gonna see you at playlist.
That's such a wide question. Go on a flight without wifi!!!
Would you ever go on x factor again?
No. But I'm grateful for the experience.
what was your first experience with performing live?
A recital with my vocal coach. Christmas recitals and things.
XIAT is obviously named for anxiety issues you face, how do you deal with anxiety and anxiety attacks?
Music and watching movies. And if I'm doing something at the moment it happens, I'm horrible at coping with it. I talk to friends who'll help me. But I always have my headphones on me so I can listen to music. There's not really much you can do.
Hi Trevor, are you minding to come to Brazil? Here in Brazil we love you so much.
Can you describe your life in one word?
I'd love to come to Brazil.
A) What's your favorite quote?
B) do you ever get annoyed by the spam on Twitter?
C) do you ever get overwhelmed with releasing songs and traveling?
A) Hashtag: Bitter Dad
B) No. Not really. It's okay.
C) Yes. Especially when there's no service and I want to see what's going on and how people are reacting and I can't!
I was on a 5 hour flight yesterday with no wifi .
if you do i can give you a tour?
Yes. I'll visit you Gibraltar.
Good morning Trevor! My question for you is: Do you ever fandude? Like, I'm @navyeahh on twitter (great person to follow, btw! ;)), and I fangoddess like crazy, but I want to know, do you have a secret #wcw or #mcm on a celebrity or icon? Did anyone inspire you to be who you are today?
Can I have a nickname? My name is Katie. I love you!😘💖
if i ever met you, what pose should we do for a picture??
What do you love so much about performing?
The cheers and the adrenaline.
hey Trevor!What do you think about those who can't attend your shows because they live outside the United States ?
please follow me on twitter: Anbeii_brooks
I'll be in your country soon!
what do you do when you're home alone?
Sleep, and sing.
When I meet you I'm probably going to be to scared to ask you for a picture but if I do will you take one with me?
what's your most awkward moment in your life?
Do you have favorite fanpages on Twitter?
I don't have one, I love them all!
Is the song Echo about a relationship you've had?
No. It's about people in general that I know that aren't true friends, if that makes sense. It's like people who crawl back once they hear about who I am.
What do you like the most about your fans?
That they're crazy passionate just like me :)
Where do you shop for clothes?
Zara, TopMan, Nordstrom...
Can I have a nickname? My name is sophie:)
