Trenton is musical creation of Ryan Courtney... a sound laced with ambient textures and uplifting melancholic pop. Ryan is always creating and has had a number songs appear on a various television shows including ABC's Brothers & Sisters, MTV's 'Teen Mom, and Degrassi.
“Penning a high-wire combination of dynamic anthem pop and mulled self-reflection, Courtney (as Trenton) builds a comfortable bridge between contemporaries M83 and Passion Pit, crafting an effortless chemical concoction of accessibility and a personable approach”
“There’s a misty, cloudy, blue vibe to his electro-lounge sounds, the couch Trenton seems destined for isn’t in a shrink’s office, but rather a fireplace-lit living room with a significant other sauntering over with a bottle of Cabernet.”
“The song, "Show Me How," explodes with the soaring passion of M83, simmers with the forlorn heartache of Keane, and growls with the gloomy sentiment of The National. It’s a singular combo but a very powerful one, indeed.”
“The brain child of singer/songwriter Ryan Courtney, consistently produces beautifully realized melancholy pop that would be right at home on radio or television -- in fact, they've already licensed a song to the ABC television series Brothers and Sisters.”

“Courtney has created a synth-based masterpiece by expanding on his shoe-gaze, feel-as-if-you-are-floating sound.”
