After a series of sold-out tours with Matisyahu, Colbie Caillat and Michael Franti & Spearhead in 2009, Trevor Hall is hitting the road again – this time on his own solo headline run thru the Spring and then with reggae legend Jimmy Cliff beginning July 9. Trevor’s self-titled debut on Vanguard Records was released in July 2009 and debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart at #7. He toured the country 3 times over, was named one of the Top 20 New Artists in 2009 by Music Connection magazine and received rave reviews for his intense live performances including this from Seattle Weekly: “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 latest album, produced by Marshall Altman (Matt Nathanson, Kate Voegele, Marc Broussard), embodies a soulfulness, depth and passion far beyond his 23 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.” Trevor also performed and co-wrote four songs that appear on Matisyahu’s new album, LIGHT.

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.
