TREVOR HALL CONTINUES HIS SUCCESSFUL CROSS-COUNTRY TOUR FEATURING UPCOMING SHOWS WITH MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD, COLBIE CAILLAT AND MATISYAHU
just wanna melt away in all Its grace, drift away to that sacred place
where there’s no more you and me no more they and we just unity.”
After a series of sold-out shows over the summer, Trevor is hitting the road again – this time with friends and artists who have also lent their voices on Trevor’s new self-titled Vanguard CD. Trevor and his band kick off the tour on September 15th for a three week run with the legendary Michael Franti & Spearhead. On the heels of that tour, Trevor joins up with his friend Colbie Caillat for the month of October. Colbie is featured on Trevor’s new recording of THE LIME TREE. Trevor will be performing solo acoustic sets on his run with Colbie until he re-joins his band for the month of November with dear friend Matisyahu, who co-wrote and performs on Trevor’s song UNITY. Trevor also performed and co-wrote four songs that appear on Matisyahu’s new album, LIGHT.
Seattle Weekly recently witnessed the power of Trevor performing live and had this to say: “I was blown away when he proceeded to perform chilling songs that sounded somewhere between Jack Johnson & Bob Marley.” While Metromix stated: “If you’ve never heard him, you need to. If you’ve seen him perform, come again. My heart is not so easily swayed, and Trevor Hall accomplished that feat in a matter of seconds. Imagine what he can do for a whole concert.”
Trevor Hall is a breath of fresh air in today’s music scene. His new album, produced by Marshall Altman (Matt Nathanson, Kate Voegele, Marc Broussard), embodies a soulfulness, depth and passion far beyond his 22 years. Trevor combines a unique musical mix of reggae and acoustic rock that serve as a landscape for his thought-provoking, inspiring lyrics.
Trevor infuses his songs
with a deep sense of spirituality and social responsibility, as evidenced
in the lead single “Unity,” written and performed with
his friend Matisyahu. The two artists were on tour together when news
of the Mumbai terrorist attacks hit the media. Trevor had made two
trips to India, one a pilgrimage with two monks from a Southern California
temple (whom he continues to live with), the second on his own in
celebration of his 21st birthday. But the sectarian violence hit close
to home for Matisyahu, who knew some of those who’d been murdered
in a synagogue that had been targeted by the terrorists.
“We read about it, talked about it, meditated about it, and we started writing lyrics back and forth,” Trevor recalls. “On the external level, it’s obviously about the unity of all beliefs. We call it by many names, but there’s only one truth. But on a much deeper, internal level, it’s about the mystical place in your own heart where all these things merge into one thing. So the song works both ways.”
Amongst Trevor’s many charitable affiliations, he recently aligned himself with The Hunger Site, the Rainforest Action Network and recently performed at an event for the Homeless Not Toothless Organization in Santa Monica, California honoring Sharon Stone and Antwone Fisher.
Originally from South
Carolina, Trevor Hall is most known for his songs “The Lime
Tree” and “Other Ways” which was featured in the
Shrek The Third Soundtrack. He has been writing and performing
since his early teens and touring since he was 17. Besides Trevor’s
current Vanguard release, Trevor also has released several independent
recordings – “This Is Blue,” “Alive &
On The Road,” “Lace Up Your Shoes” along with his
EP, “The Rascals Have Returned.”
Trevor hit the road in early June in support of Trevor Hall and has not stopped since. Upcoming Trevor Hall dates:
