Bluesfest is proud to announce that Trevor Hall will make his long awaited Bluesfest debut in 2017. His music is an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – it echoes with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining a refreshingly universal message.
Trevor quickly broke through the music scene joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, SOJA, Brett Denne, Colbie Callait and Nahko & Medicine for the People. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Trevor’s annual trips to India also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. The precious lessons and experiences that he has harvested from his journeys East have moved Trevor to return a service to those whom have colored his music and his life so beautifully.
His latest album, Kala, written in Hawaii and recorded in LA, was released August 21st, 2015. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart and #5 on Billboards Folk Chart.
“Trevor Hall brings a soothing, enlightened musical journey of acoustic tones mixed with deep lyrics, particularly to his new album, KALA. His lyrics run so deep, one cannot help but relate it to true poetry, and even then, that cannot describe the totality of how his songs take one on an incredible journey.” -topshelfreggae.com
"The 28-year-old Hall has a career arc like no other and his most recent records are a reflection of that. Kala is a discussion of the concept of time. Hall’s philosophical take aims to dig deeper into the nature of this important subject." – thepier.org
"Hall has mastered his sound which is an eclectic mix of acoustic reggae, rock and sanskrit chanting. Hall’s unique sound has landed him on sold-out tours alongside musicians like SOJA, Michael Franti, Colbie Callait and Matisyahu to name a few." – clture.org
