Trench is a multi-instrumentalist known for making musical covers of famous songs. While he has been making covers for years, he doesn’t show his face in his videos because he “never wanted to be famous.” Instead, he prefers for the focus to be on the music, or the instrument— or his dog Maple who he says is the “real star.”
He wasn’t always playing alone in his cover videos though. Maple often accompanied him in his videos and sometimes she even played an instrument. She played the drums for Trench’s covers of “Take On Me” by a-Ha and “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.
When Maple wasn’t playing any instruments, she was chilling in Trench’s cover videos and enjoying the music. One of their most-watched video is Trench’s kalimba cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” with over 30 million views on YouTube.
In this cover video, Maple is seen calmly sitting in the background as the soothing sound of the kalimba plays the tune of the song. This cover is shorter than the others, but the sound of the kalimba combined with Maple’s calmness has gained a lot of attention.
In some of their more recent videos, you can also spot another member of the family: a rescue pup named Cherry. She’s very shy & timid as she had a tough life before adoption but with lots of love and patience she’s learning to trust again and she has become very attached to Maple.
