Wonkybot Studios is thrilled to announce award-winning singer/songwriter Trevor Sewell has joined the voice cast of ‘Spooky Troop’ as General Klick, head of the Demon King’s skeleton army.
“We’re so excited to have Trevor on board the audio series,” said Stewart St John, creator, writer and co-composer of the show, and founder of Wonkybot Studios. “We needed someone with a strong voice presence to work alongside the Demon King… and Trevor blew us away with his chilling performance!”
“Playing General Klick has to be the most fun project I’ve been involved with to date,” said Sewell who hails from the North of England. “I’m just so happy to be a part of ‘Team Wonkybot!’”
Winner of 9 major awards in the U.S.A. and 6 times nominated in the British Blues Awards, Sewell’s debut album “Calling Your Name” spent a staggering 7 weeks at number one on the the American Blues Scene Chart, with his subsequent 3 albums firmly establishing him as a force to be reckoned with. Sewell’s music has been recorded by numerous American and British artists and is also featured on many major compilations alongside legendary artists such as Robert Johnson, B.B King and Howlin’ Wolf.
In the UK Sewell was one of the most played artists as reported by the IBBA chart across the whole of 2014 and 2015, and he’ll launch a new album during Grammys week in 2017.
Sewell recently became the voice of the audio book Dangerous Gambles by acclaimed American author J.H. Sanderson, and now can add Spooky Troop to his list of credits.
“Spooky Troop’s been such a great experience,” said Sewell. “I can’t wait to do it again!”
The Spooky Troop podcast is an audio drama for kids and family, available for free on iTunes (in the podcast section) and on Wonkybot.com.
“We’re a full-cast production, featuring dialogue, special effects, an original musical score and original songs composed by Stewart and Michael Plahuta,” said Todd Fisher, co-founder of Wonkybot Studios and one of the producers of Spooky Troop. “We launched Spooky Troop as a follow up to our other podcast series, The Secret Diaries of Tara Tremendous.”
In the story, seven monster friends — outcasts because they were ‘born to do good in a wicked world’ — are trying to stop the Demon King from destroying humans in the third dimension because they mock the monster world by celebrating Halloween.
