Finalist in Vine Musician

About Trench

Fingerstyle guitarist, harpist, and multi-instrumentalist Trench has achieved musical heights with a little help from his friend, Maple the dog. Serenading his Vine following of 1.9 million, the anonymous Trench plays pop hits on the acoustic guitar while his well-versed musical partner Maple accompanies on a variety of instruments, including bass drum, glockenspiel, and cowbell. Not only a musician and man’s best friend, Maple is a savvy marketer as well, re-vining Trench’s music samples, promoting his 2015 debut single, “Daylight," to her personal Vine following of 287K, and attracting media attention including The Huffington Post and BuzzFeed.
