Trevor Guthrie: Wanted

Trevor Guthrie - "Wanted" (Sony): This artist had a career breakthrough with the Juno-winning, Grammy-nominated international hit, “This Is What It Feels Like,” a co-write with legendary Dutch DJ, Armin van Buuren.

A few months back we witnessed him win a 2016 SOCAN Dance Music Award for his hit track “Summertime.”  His most recent single, "Wanted" has accumulated over 1.5 million streams on Spotify Globally and it is currently Top 25 at CHR and Top 30 at HOT AC radio in Canada. A powerful video for the track has just come out.

“Wanted” skillfully employs a gospel choir to help convey the song’s theme, a compassionate look at depression. In a press bio, Guthrie notes that “the imagery is meant to convey my willingness to enter into this person’s darkness, to make sure she knows that she is not alone and that I will be there for her for every step of her journey to recovery."

Despite the dark subject matter, the song’s melodic mix of pop, soul, dance and r ‘n b elements is both catchy and uplifting.
