From Janis: Trevor and I live on the same island, where he has a small recording studio and wonderful collection of handmade percussion instruments. He and his band go all over the place, performing, and his joy in writing and singing is a pleasure to watch. His musicianship is growing by leaps and bounds; having followed him now for five years, I’m very curious to see what the future holds for him and his work!

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
