Trevor Jackson

Trevor Jackson made his recorded debut during the early 2010s and continued to juggle dual careers as an actor and pop-oriented R&B artist. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Jackson played Young Simba in the Chicago production of The Lion King before he moved to Los Angeles to be closer to the movie, television, and music industries. In 2010, he joined the cast of the SyFy network series Eureka, and in 2012 his role in Disney's hip-hop-themed movie Let It Shine provided the perfect stepping stone for a career in music. In 2013, after he signed to major-label Atlantic, he released the singles "Like We Grown" and "Superman," both of which landed on his New Thang EP later that same year. A handful of singles scattered across 2014 and early 2015 led to the mixtape In My Feelings, after which Jackson resumed acting work with a role on the series American Crime, appearances on Black-ish, and a lead role in the film Burning Sands. Jackson inked a distribution deal with Empire and returned to music in 2017 with the singles "B&W (Benz and My Wallet)" and "NightTime," the latter of which appeared on his 2018 mixtape Rough Drafts, Pt. 1. By that point, Jackson had also joined the main cast of the Black-ish spinoff Grown-ish. A pair of singles, the slick "Warning" and the ballad "Puddles," appeared in 2019. ~ David Jeffries
