It has been a whirlwind journey for Trey O’Dell! He soaked up the national spotlight on NBC’s The Voice and now he is ready to hit the ground running back home in Northwest Arkansas.

Trey O’Dell first hit The Voice stage singing “Geronimo” for his blind audition and sang his way to a spot on Team Blake. He then battled and was saved by Christina Aguilera! Next up was the knockout round, with a little help from Miley Cyrus.

“Getting to work with Christina and Miley was just mind-blowing. I remember in 5th grade sitting there thinking, ‘What if I can hang out with Miley Cyrus?’ like that thought crossed my mind cause she was the cutest girl on television… Walking into that room and seeing them there, it felt like I was in a dream. People say, ‘oh it felt like it was in a dream,’ but it did. I was in a dream.”

He performed One Republic’s “I Lived” and left it all on the stage for what would be his final performance on The Voice.

“I felt so great about my performance. You never know what’s going to happen in those situations. It’s out of my hands but I gave my best performance and Bryan gave his best performance and nothing but love for him and Christina… It’s been nothing but love from everyone around and just a lot of excitement to see what’s going to happen in the future.”

And that future is looking very bright. His self-titled debut EP, Trey O’Dell, is out now and was produced at Haxton Road Studios in Bentonville. It consists of 5 songs, all written by Trey, and is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.

“In the midst of being on the road and playing and performing, writing is really the key to everything… It’s hard to pick one thing and just be excited about that because then another thing would come around and hit me right in the face and I’m just so blessed. All glory to God in all of this. He took me to this level and He’s going to take me even further.”

Just announced, Trey will be performing at the University of Arkansas Springtime of Youth Festival.

“I’m going to be joining Diplo, Kevin Gates and BØRNS at their Springtime of Youth Festival and that’s a dream come true show for me. It’s going to be the biggest show I’ve ever played. I’m bringing a full band and it’s going to be special to get to play for my student body finally.”

Tickets are also on sale now for his first ever solo headliner show at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville May 5.

“When I was a freshman, before I’d even started playing shows anywhere, I was driving by George’s and I’d been to a show there and I knew how cool it was to go to George’s or play at George’s and I was like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to sell that out one day?’ …I’ve got to open for Barrett Baber, Boom Kinetic – Arkansas’ #1 party band – but to get my own show there it was going to take a little extra, but now that I have that little extra, it’s time to make that dream come true and sell out George’s.”

Trey is also enrolled full-time for the fall semester at the University of Arkansas and is studying supply chain management. He only has three semesters left and is determined to balance his music career and school.

“I’m honestly excited to get back on campus. Ever since I stepped foot on this campus, you know, it’s just been amazing. It’s a magical place. This whole city is just awesome… With Barrett coming off the show and then me getting my turn, there’s just more to come and I can’t wait for everyone to see what happens. It’s super exciting… Fayetteville’s on the map and the University of Arkansas is on the map. We’ve got some great things happening and it’s only just begun.”

He plans to cheer on his Voice teammates throughout this season and is forever grateful for this opportunity.

“It’s weird. These being all my friends on this show, it’s like watching home video or YouTube videos. It’s crazy seeing my friends that I’ve been kicking it with for the past few months… I’m just proud to have been on The Voice Season 10, the best season yet.”
