Music in Review: Trevor Hall’s KALA – Performing at Pub Station Tuesday, September 22nd
September 18, 2015
Slowing down my busy schedule to listen to Trevor Hall’s recently released KALA turned out to be an oasis of calm. I understood why this beautiful album debuted at #2 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart, has been widely acclaimed, and Yoga Journal recommended turning it on for a good session on the mat.
He will perform at The Pub Station this coming Tuesday, September 22nd at 7pm, and I am really looking forward to hearing him live.
The richness of Trevor’s voice and the ethereal quality of his music were balms for my soul. Against a backdrop of acoustic, folksy and reggae tones, he takes you along his path of spiritual exploration, sharing wisdom gained from his travels.
Hope, letting go, and trust are strong themes throughout. It seems he is working towards enlightenment by trading fear and control for belief and trust.
I grooved around my kitchen to “Bela Galo” (reggae influence with guitar and vocals reminding me of Sting,) and connected with the soothing and meditative tracks “Forgive” and “You Can’t Rush Your Healing”. “Indigo” had one of my favorite lines: “Don’t let all your dark thoughts school ya.”
Take a few minutes to watch his album trailer and immerse yourself in his storytelling.
“This album mirrors my journey with time….my journey to surrender more deeply to it. KALA is about time the healer, time the teacher, time the friend, and all the lessons within. My hope and prayer is that these songs and stories help inspire us to look at this journey of life in all its vastness rather than its limitation.”
