Trevor grew up in the suburbs of Ottawa’s West end where reaching for a musical instrument instead of a hockey stick was more the exception than the rule. Like many young Canadian musicians, Lapointe was always bouncing around trying to find vacant space to hide in and make enough noise to get through another Ottawa winter.
Trevor James & The Perfect Gentlemen would be his next big venture. Pop Culture Records / Maple Music released their debut self-titled LP in 2008. Endless tours coast to coast left Lapointe tired, broke and broken.
Dark love affairs with alcohol and other party indulgences were taking their toll. It was then that he almost decided to call it quits. It was only after hitting a new type of low - one that he himself describes as the worst time in his life - that the artist found his way out of the darkness and into a new version of himself. “My father was on his death bed, my partner of many years had left, friendships had fallen apart, and I was finally faced with what it means to be utterly, painfully, truly alone. I had to do something”
RUM FIT MOSEY finally came to be. It is this passionately fearless songwriter’s latest incarnation and brings with it a loyal fan base, watching closely as this relentless storyteller continues to try and realize his true potential as the songwriter he is and always will be.
RUM FIT MOSEY is comprised of Toronto based singer-songwriter Trevor James Lapointe, as well as select players for live and studio performances.
