Bluesfest Touring presents
TREVOR HALL (US) with Bobby Alu
Trevor Hall is renowned for his emotionally moving and inspiring live shows which have a clear linear pattern of storytelling, particularly noting sentiments of love. His unique ability to mix and match different types of styles so effortlessly is a highlight of Hall's live performance.
Hailing from a small island in South Carolina, Hall creates music that is an eclectic mix of roots, folk, rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting. His lyrics echo with the names and teachings of divinities, all the while maintaining an incredibly refreshing and universal message that has captured the hearts and ears of fans around the world. 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, where he supports young boys and girls, also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music.
Hall's latest major album release, THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS, topped the charts at #4 on the iTunes Alternative Albums charts. His first independent musical release, the Kickstarter campaign, supported by his fans whom he calls The Villagers, became the #1 Music campaign of its kind in 2017 - after a decade plus of recording for established labels such as Geffen and Vanguard.
"This album conveys the deep vulnerability of journeying through the unknown, as opposed to playing it safe ... It's very different from anything I've done before - much more of a creative, exploratory journey."
Besides the change in infrastructure, the album itself explores completely new sonic terrain and was released unconventionally, in three to five song installments on specific lunar dates.
Throughout Hall's career, he has toured with acts such as Steel Pulse, Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Xavier Rudd and more. Trevor's previous albums, Chapter Of The Forest (2014), and KALA (2015), debuted at numbers 2 and 3 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts respectively.
Prepare to be uplifted in Sydney and Melbourne this April.
