Trey describes himself as a musician, first and foremost. He began his singing career with nothing but only his love for music. If there is one thing one should know about Trey Cornelius, his passion precedes him, and it is a major part of who he is today. It also pulls him through any adversities he faced in life. His story is a powerful one since it directly challenges the narrative that passion will get you nowhere. Trey would love to say otherwise.
Like many of us, Trey didn’t have it easy from the start. He also had his fair share of struggles back then. However, he shifted his perspective and learned to embrace uniqueness to entertain people through good music. His song gathers people together, and his voice is loved by many.
Ever since he was young, he always had a knack for a good sound. From then on, little Trey always showcased his talent to his family by singing. His vocal ability had been cultivated from a very young age. With his family supporting his back, young Tyler took a big leap of faith and officially entered the music industry.
At first, there have been several setbacks that hampered him in pursuing this career. Even though it is already a given that Tyler has good vocals, he had a hard time learning guitar. He vividly remembers his frustrating experience using the instrument for the very first time. “I couldn’t get the right chords into motion; however, once I got my fingers to work, it was pretty nonchalant,” Trey admitted. However, he did not let his frustrations eat him up nor discourage to give up his very first love.
As a matter of fact, he made it his driving motivation. In a span of weeks, Trey achieved mastery in his successive guitar lessons. He not only memorized the correct chords, but he also applied them to a song.
Overcoming this stumbling block gave Tyler a glimmer of hope that one day he could make it big. However, life can get tougher sometimes. Being in the music industry is far from easy. He shares, “There were places I wanted to go sing at, but I couldn’t because you had to be a certain age or you had to be a member of something.”
Still full of optimism, Trey just thinks of these life challenges as learning curves. Every time he doubts himself, he always goes back to his mantra: “If you strive for success, then anything can happen if you let it. One slogan that sticks with me is ‘Make It Happen’”. This is such a huge difference between the Trey that was before and the Trey that is now. Instead of focusing on the misfortunes, he learns to appreciate himself as he continues to grow as a singer/songwriter.
Given the highly competitive nature of the music industry, Trey is now ready to take on the challenge and show the world that no matter your hurdles, always remember what keeps you going, and everything will fall into place.
