JUNE 15, 2015 - TREVOR HALL has announced the release of his upcoming album KALA on August 21, 2015. Written in Hawaii and recorded in L.A., KALA marks the final chapter in a trilogy that chronicles Trevor’s spiritual and musical journey over the past few years. KALA, which means ‘time’ in Sanskrit, embodies the very essence of time, permeating in each of the album’s tracks.

Trevor explains, “A year ago, my grandmother said to me…‘Isn’t time such a wonderful gift?’…….That was the seed. That was the beginning … ‘Time.’ …For as long as I can remember, time was something that I looked upon negatively. It was always a burden, a pressure, a restriction. It was something that I was always running out of, something that I couldn’t grasp. I constantly encumbered myself with the impossible task of figuring everything out right now. I mean, we’re running out of time, aren’t we? Look around you … Our daily lives are ruled by time. Everyone is in a rush. Everyone is trying to get things done before time runs out. We are bound by it, frustrated with it, and often angry at it.

When my grandmother looked up to me from her wheel chair on that golden afternoon, something happened. I didn’t know it then, but that one remark would stick with me for weeks and months to come. Slowly, but inevitably, her words would unravel the weighted tassels of time that I had continually allowed myself to be fettered by. In time, time changed its face.


Thus … KALA was born.

‘Kala’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘time.’ In contrast to my inherited understanding of time, many Eastern cultures of our world understand and treat time for its eternal nature. It is spoken of in its relationship to space and to growth. It fosters wisdom and right understanding. It is the womb of all creation - from which we all came, and to which we will all return to. There is no beginning, and there is no end.


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.”

TREVOR HALL’S musical trilogy began with the 2014 release of CHAPTER OF THE FOREST, born during a yearlong sabbatical in which Hall returned to his beloved India, Nepal, Vermont, and Maine. His journey continued with his most recent EP UNPACK YOUR MEMORIES, a collection including some of Hall’s most personal tracks recorded on his laptop solely by him.

Hall is currently in the midst of his summer tour which will include two special performances. He will be featured on Emmy Award winning PBS show On Tour that will be taped at World Café Live in Wilmington, Delaware on June 16th. The program will air in the fall. The On Tour series is recorded live on location at local venues in and around Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. It airs on PBS station WHYY-TV. On July 11th, Trevor will be the featured performer in Deepak Chopra’s 2nd annual Global Meditation for Compassion at the Deepak Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA. The event will be streamed live in English and Spanish. For more information on this event visit https://chopracentermeditation.com/globalmeditation
