WE WRITE MUSIC. WE PERFORM. AND WE LOVE IT.

92 Keys was founded in 2015 by Trevor Loucks, ten years after the idea first started brewing. Before YouTube, Spotify, etc; the original plan was to record piano and violin music then distribute the videos through DVDs! Times have changed. But our passion for crafting unique and innovative instrumental music is stronger than it has ever been. We hope you love what we create as much as we love creating it. Thanks for stopping by!

I am a classically-trained violinist currently getting my Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I started playing when I was three years old and decided to seriously pursue music when I had the opportunity to perform in Lyon, France with some other music friends when I was 14 years old. It was here that I was able to see the powerful and positive effect music has on people.

Finding performance opportunities is something I love to do because of  how music makes me feel and especially how it makes the world feel. I’ve had amazing experiences performing in Carnegie Hall and with artists such as Cyndi Lauper, William Joseph, Josh Groban, and opening for Carrie Underwood.

I also enjoy teaching music locally and abroad. In August 2015 I had a heartwarming opportunity to teach music to underprivileged kids in San Jose, Costa Rica for three weeks. This was a life changing experience and something I hope to do again one day!

I am a lover of all kinds of music, and am quite the nerd within the classical community, so I hope I can bring a new approach to classical music for those who are not as familiar with it.

There are two worlds that have always fascinated me and 92 Keys is the result you get when combining them. Numbers, spreadsheets, being entrepreneurial, planning and execution are all things I enjoy doing which led me to graduate with a degree in Business Management from Boise State University. All that goes on behind the scenes to make a project like 92 Keys possible is equally as interesting to me as the creative side.

Then having the opportunity to sit at a piano to write music has been something I’ve loved exploring for the last twenty years. Creating something from nothing is a unique challenge that comes with its own stresses and failures, but when you get to step back and hear the final product, something that nobody else has played before, it’s worth it.

The first song I ever wrote and performed live, back in 2005, was for piano and violin. I’ve been hooked on that combination since high school and it’s exciting to be a part of something which allows for that idea to grow.

I spent a few years during my 20’s (and I’m still in my 20’s!) teaching music at the Adventist University of Central Africa in Kigali, Rwanda. That was an unforgettable time in my life. Before that I worked for five years at the NBC affiliate in Boise, ID as a field videographer. Did a short stint with Royal Caribbean International as a Cruise Ship pianist. Freelancing around the Northwest as a keys player has also been a common job since high school. However, it’s time to move beyond that and do something that I can find fulfilling as a musician. And thus, 92 Keys is born.
