Blog Hijack: Chasing Fear: The Music of Trevor Bachman

Grace McLean, Travis Kent, Luke Marinkovich & More Set for One-Night Only Concert CHASING FEAR: The Music of Trevor Bachman at Rockwood Music Hall

Trevor Bachman debuts new musical Chasing Fear on July 25th at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2. Chasing Fear is a carnival concert by composer/performer Trevor Bachman, that gleefully spins Turkish folklore into a macabre pop-up book of songs. A scintillating selection of Grimm’s fairy tales are sung in English and Turkish, through a fusion of rock, gospel, and folk music. Playful and Burton-esque, Chasing Fear is a ghostly thriller that makes for a diverse, delicious, and sonically satisfying evening.

The concert features performances by Grace McLean (Great Comet), Travis Kent (Disaster! – On Broadway), Luke Marinkovich (The Bridges of Madison County), Stevi Incremona, Teri Madonna, Andrew Martin, Josephine Spada, Elijah Caldwell, and Trevor Bachman. Produced by Brídín Clements & Zachary Infante.

Grace McLean is New York's premier up-and coming talent hailed by Lincoln Center's American Songbook series for her "electrifying" presence (Huff Post). She can be seen this season reviving her role in the Broadway bound production of Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.

Trevor Bachman is a New York City based composer, musical director, and vocalist. Best known for his use of the human voice’s extremes, his pieces fuse classic traditions of opera with storytelling practices of the modern theatre.
He has written and developed countless scores for original musicals, including PYRE CANTATA (HERE Arts Center) a rock opera based on the Antigone story, In Real Life: A Slenderman Musical (Theatre For A NewAudience), The Lobotomist (Ars Nova), and Piano Bar (Joe’s Pub), co-written with the late director, composer and theatre visionary, Elizabeth Swados.
Bachman has  arranged, orchestrated, and musically directed world premieres of The Nomad (The Flea), A Fable (Cherry Lane Theatre), Times Square (The Public Theatre), Playing Hot (Pipeline), and the music of acclaimed Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren.

His concert and theatre pieces have been performed internationally in Abu Dhabi, London, and Tokyo. Trevor is an alumnus of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
