Every once in a generation, the earth has been graced with multi-talented wonders who were able to command not just music charts, but box offices, stadiums, and stages like no other. Triple-threats like Michael Jackson, Prince, and Gregory Hines have left an imprint in the world that continues to inspire the next generation of all-round creatives. It was these same artists, in fact, who sparked a passion for entertainment in the young Trevor Jackson. As a toddler growing up in Indiana – the same state that raised MJ – Trevor Jackson already knew what he wanted to do in life: entertain. Just a couple years after learning to walk, Jackson started tap dancing, and at eight years old, he was touring on Broadway. The grind hasn’t slowed down since. The now 24-year-old Jackson has established himself as a bona fide actor, director, singer, songwriter, dancer and instrumentalist, to name a few. In between playing a lead role on the TV show Grownish, Jackson always found time for his first love: music. And on his official debut album, The Love Language, he peels back layers from his years in the limelight to remind us of the importance of feeling, expressing and creating from the heart. EARMILK had the pleasure of catching up with Jackson over the phone to discuss all things music, life, and love.
