about

Trey O’Dell is a singer/songwriter from Fayetteville, AR.  He received the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to audition for the Emmy award winning show The Voice Season 10. Trey performed Geronimo and earned a coveted spot on Team Blake. For the Battle Rounds, Blake paired indie/pop artist Trey and folk/rock artist Brittany Kennel to perform The Chain by Fleetwood Mac. Trey brought his powerful, soulful edge to the performance which caught the attention of Christina Aguilera and won Trey a steal! In 2015, Trey released his self-titled EP, Trey O’Dell, produced by Haxton Road Studios. While living in Fayetteville to study business at the University of Arkansas, Trey has been working with singer/songwriters and producers to develop his soulful sound and song writing flair.  Trey has been compared to pop artists such as Ed Sheeran, James Bay, and John Mayer. His music style spans from pop to rock, all with a soulful edge.

Known for his tone and ability to deliver a lyric, Trey has been performing at venues in Northwest Arkansas since 2013. He has opened for the bands Backroad Anthem, Boom Kinetic, and Barrett Baber at the famous George’s Majestic Lounge. Trey can also be found performing on campus at the University of Arkansas. He has entertained at a variety of Greek events, including Row Week. In 2015, he joined the lineup of BYX Island Music Festival artists Judah and The Lion, Penny and Sparrow, and Little Chief. Trey is an avid Razorback fan. While attending the U of A, he has often been invited to perform the National Anthem at Razorback sporting events. A highlight for 2015 was the incredible opportunity to sing the National Anthem in Kansas City at a Sporting KC soccer game

Trey has loved performing since he was a kid. He entered a talent show as an Elvis impersonator when he was only 1 ½, singing Blue Suede Shoes. Throwing it back to one of his childhood inspirations, in 2014, Trey recorded That’s All Right Mama at the legendary Sun Studios. He had an incredible time jamming with the band and special guest, Dave Roe, former bassist for Johnny Cash. His appreciation for pioneer artists like Elvis flows into his own style of music. He believes that an appreciation for the past is essential to growing as an artist and developing his own sound.

Core Brewery:

” Trey has played for us at Core Brewery many times and has always brought a good crowd and kept them listening.  His fresh voice and song selection appeals to a wide variety of people.  While he’s young, his talent far exceeds his age.  Whether he’s playing a popular cover song or an original, the delivery is professional.  We always enjoy watching him perform.  There’s no doubt you’ll see this guy playing in larger venues in the near future but we’ll continue to have him at Core Brewery as long as we can!
