Also on the bill...
...are the Manna House Souljas, R.A.W., Ras a.k.a. Lil Raskul, and other great bands. Below are some videos of these great acts.
With so many things continuing to move forward in Trevor Lee's life, it's surprising he is able to make time and talk to us about it all. "Trevor Lee TV' is a web series edited by Jay Navejas from Trevor Lee Films to keep us updated and give us a raw look at what it takes to follow your dreams and successfully accomplish goals to get closer to them. Trevor Lee is a prime example of someone getting results from pushing limitations, breaking character boundaries, and relentless determination.
In this particular episode, we get to see the process behind the new "All to You" (Dance Remix) featuring 007 (of R.A.W.) that will be releasing for free download next week. I thought that it was refreshing to experience the raw unedited moments placed in this episode. After seeing so many highly polished material of Trevor, it's nice to see his guard down.
Another inspiring story featured is Alex Gentry and her best friend Kalysta Chunn; two teenage girls that were able to bridge the gap between fan and close friend. I don't know if you'd see any other mainstream male artists showing such kindness and pouring into lives like this. Truly, a special insight.
Trevor Lee also discusses the Sketch the Journalist series, "Oceans #Leemix" music video, and more.

This Has been your Trevor Lee Update by D.D. Roland.
With so many projects in the works, it's nice to only have one thing to discuss this week. For those of you that haven't listened to, downloaded, or even heard about it; "where have you been?". "Oceans" #LeeMix is one of Trevor Lee's latest and greatest singles. He took a beautiful, worship intensive song and made it into something entirely unique and refreshing. Trev's version of Hillsongs number 1 billboard hit, is sure to be a chart topper of it's own. That is, if publishing is eventually acquired; stand with us in prayer over it. For now, you can enjoy it for FREE HERE.
Well... with all that said, let's get to the juice! Trevor Lee and Jay Navejas from Trevor Lee Films are pushing forward full steam with the music video at top speed. Trevor shares...
"I've never been so free while filming a music video. From concept to production, this has been exhilarating. I feel like I'm finding new capabilities and surpassing limits that I'm realizing never existed in the first place. I've learned many things this year, and the one at this moment, is that it's always easier than it looks if God is in control. I'm extremely thankful for my entire team. From Jay on the Trevor Lee Films team to Cameron Giddings and Brandon Garza as co-producers. Truly, a blessed life.
A true treat in the video is the choreographer, Karess Grant. Although the sunset background at parts is absolutely breathe taking, she compliments God's handy work well. I don't know very much about dance, but it was a bit freeing to see her dance through the city and on the beach. I could connect to the music through her visuals. I asked Trevor about working with her.
"Karess has been wonderful to work with. I found her through facebook. I'm not sure how we became friends, but I'm glad we did. I saw her dancing videos on my facebook feed, and was inspired by the way she moved. I knew that I was going to use her, just didn't know for what. Gladly, we found the right song, and she spent a month and a half creating the material. I strongly recommend her for anything... ever." (He ended grinning.)
Although the final video isn't complete, we have this great Trailer available. Enjoy! I already have.

New Manna House Souljas Video
ANGLES! Lots of angles, Manna House's "Liftoff" is a unique undertaking because of all the different angles used during filming. It took two rappers, a fire breather, and a film crew three hours at an outdoor pavilion on a cold, wet and rainy day to film "Liftoff". And you get to reap all the rewards, in the comfort of your own home, while sitting in your PJs, probably ignoring all your new year's resolutions. But that's a good thing, you want to be able to just soak it all in when the video drops later this month, with nothing on your mind but Vow and Pesmaker enriching your mind while you watch magic happen on the screen courtesy of Trevor Lee Films.
This Friday at Legacy Church Trevor Lee and Extended Play will be joining the lineup for an event called Grown and Saved. All the fun gets kicked off at 7:30 with an awesome line-up that includes the likes of Kingdom Muzic, New Covenant Worship, AJ McQueen, Bryann & Monica Trejo, Nina Sims, Mic Tunez, Bariton, & Von Won. #GrownandSaved is the theme of the night, calling adults and married couples to come together for great night of entertainment where they can hang out with other christians in the Houston area. Legacy Church is located at 9701 Almeda Genoa Rd. Houston, TX 77075 and is hosted by CT church. Check out the the videos in the adjacent playlist to see a video of the Trevor Lee & Extended Play from the last time they played at this venue.
Also in the weeks to come...
January 25th Extended Play will be playing at the 7th Anniversary of Hip Hop Sunday in Austin, TX. If you have any family or friends near 111 W. Anderson Ln, Unit E360, in Austin, TX 78752 then tell them to get there by doors at 4:30PM for an awesome time. Better yet, take a road trip after church and treat yourself to a great night of fun in Austin before you head into your work week!

Trevor Lee TV Episode 2 is out!
This episode gives a revealing look at what it's like to lead the life of a busy artist, director, and music producer. This is a really cool insider's look at all the crazy and awesome things in the works at Trevor Lee Films. There's a good amount of info about upcoming music from the likes of W/ U (With U) and Von Won, and it's really cool to hear about Trevor's contributions to these songs. I can't wait to see what the other videos in this series highlight. I'm a huge fan of these kind of videos that reveal a little more about the elaborate process that goes into making all these projects a reality. Check out the video on the left.
Also in the works...
is a new video for Manna House Souljas that would challenge the skills of any director. Filming this weekend is an action-packed video involving a multiple camera setup with 360 degree footage, I even hear it will feature a Fire-breather too! (Whaat?!!) The new video for "Liftoff" will feature artist Pesmaker and promises to be a great addition to the Manna House music video library. I can't wait to see it!
Have you downloaded the #Leemix of "Oceans" yet?
Don't wait any longer because the filming is almost underway for the music video starring and choreographed by Karess Grant. Here's what Trevor had to say about the video.
"I've asked Karess to do something I've never attempted before. She will be creating and performing unique choreography designed specifically with this song in mind. This song presents a unique challenge because, if you've heard the song, it's essentially three songs in one. I'm really excited to see how it turns out!"
Best news for last!
I'm really excited to tell you guys about this next project! Last year Trevor Lee sat down to talk with Sketch the Journalist to discuss the year's events. Sketch is the writer of a blog entitled "Jesus Musik" for the Houston Chronicle which can be found easily at the URL italktorappers.com . I'm excited to say that this Sunday he and the entire Trevor Lee team will be doing one-on-one interviews with Sketch the Journalist in this year's edition of "Sketch the Journalist" series. In addition to the Trevor Lee team members, all the artists involved in Extended Play will be sitting down with Sketch, as well as Manna House Soulja's "Vow" and rap artist "J Lyrik". Even studio producers Brandon Garza, and Cameron Giddings will be in on the fun.
