Debra Heesch and Open Space present Trevor Hall. Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven-year-old, he played harmonica beside his father in the cradle of South Carolina’s weeping willows. Music quickly became Hall’s most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform locally.
At sixteen he recorded his first record. The next year, he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. There, Hall was introduced to yoga and spiritual practices found in India, which greatly influenced his music and life journey. During his senior year, Hall signed a record deal with Geffen Records and his career as a musician formally began.
Hall quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on Shrek the Third soundtrack. He joined a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Callait. Hall’s meteoric rise also presented challenges that conflicted with his spiritual life and devotional practice. To parallel his life’s path with his music’s messages, Hall resided in a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When home from touring, he lived as a monk and devoted his days to spiritual practice and service. His involvement with the temple positively impacted the music, and Hall’s music quickly became his practice.
Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echos with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Hall views the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Hall’s annual trips to India continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. His latest album, KALA, written in Hawaii and recorded in LA, was released August 21, 2015. It debuted #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. KALA marks the final chapter in a trilogy that chronicles Hall’s spiritual and musical journey over the past few years. “It’s a graceful amalgam of styles by a musician who loves to embrace the music of the world.” (Popmatters)
