Fresh face Trevor Boulden has a new song out aptly titled “Island Song.” Boulden even wrote this track by himself while being in Bermuda, so audiences know it was made to feel authentic.
Boulden made the move to Nashville just over three years ago. He had already fallen in love with songwriting but performing around Nashville and meeting other aspiring musicians further fueled his passion. Premiere producer Dean Miller noticed Boulden’s talent and wanted to work with him. Miller has worked with a roster of artists that include Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Kacey Musgraves. Boulden’s first single “Dance With Me” which was released last year garnered more attention for his artistry.
When talking about his new single “Island Song,” Boulden stated in a press release, “‘Good songs write themselves,’ but I never really understood what that meant until I wrote 'Island Song.' I wrote the song by myself in Bermuda in 30 minutes one morning. I was sitting on a beach chair, watching the most beautiful sunrise in the Islands when the first line came to me.” The sound of this track is calm, pure, and perfect for being in the sun.
The lyrics also contain references to past country songs about the Islands. Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet’s “Five O'Clock Somewhere,” and “Some Beach” by Blake Shelton get special shoutouts. Boulden wrote this song about the beauty and peace one gets from being by the ocean as he croons, “It’s easy to get lost in blue and green, watching the waved roll in, when it’s five o’clock somewhere, just sitting on a beach chair.” Boulden’s smooth vocals pair perfectly well with the style of this song. Time will tell to see where the Island wind takes Boulden.
