Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My names Trevor, and I make music under the name Lxve. A lot of my life is dedicated to making music, and trying to better myself in any way possible.
What Inspires You Every day? : We have one chance in this life to do things the way we want. We don’t get do overs, and we don’t get to take back the things we do or say. We live with the consequences of our actions and as far as I know this could be the only chance in our existence to do something. I wake up everyday and ask myself “if I had to relive my life over the exact same way for eternity would I be happy with my choices?” So I’d say that’s my biggest motivation.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Perspective is so important, keeping an open mind even when it hurts your feelings makes the world a better place. But above all, love is always the answer even when it seems impossible.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : Career wise I want to make music that changes peoples lives for the better and make a living doing it. But more important than that, I’d like to find lasting peace, love and happiness before I die.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I struggle heavily with mental illness and knew that part of the pandemic posed the biggest threat to me, but I focused on music, meditation and my health both physical and mental. I’d say it’s been a learning experience, it’s taught me patience, and I’ve seen it bring out the worst in people. All in all I’ve survived it, and found a way to make positive change in my life despite what’s happening in the world.
What is a message you would like to give others? : At the end of your life social media, news and all the negativity you see on a daily basis will mean nothing. All that matters is finding peace, and love is the answer. We will have to let go of all possessions and even friends and family one day and all we will have is the love left over. Cherish each day and find ways to be thankful.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I want my legacy to speak for itself.
