Trevor Hall – ‘The Fruitful Darkness III’

Growing up on an island in South Carolina, singer songwriter Trevor Hall discovered very early on that music was more than just a passion to him; rather it was a way of life.

Recording his first album at the tender age of sixteen, he soon left the island to attend Idyllwild Arts Academy, in the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California, where he studied classical guitar, as well as being introduced to yoga and meditation, which he has found deeply inflence his life and music.

Trevor’s music is a blend of roots and folk, combined with a deep love of Eastern Mysticism. He found that this brought about a closeness with his fans, and because of this Trevor became a leader of the conscious musical community. He took a number of pilgrimages to India, as well having sold out tours, and collaborating with the likes of Steel Pulse, Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd, and Nahko and Medicine For the People.

Trevor’s previous albums, ‘Chapter Of The Forest’, from 2014, and ‘KALA’ (2015), debuted at numbers 2 and 3 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts respectively, which he supported with tours around the US and Australia.




‘The Fruitful Darkness’ is Trevor’s first independent release, after more than a decade of recording with established labels such as Geffen and Vanguard. The album was released with support from his fans on a Kickstarter campaign, who are known as THE VILLAGERS. The album was the #1 Music campaign of its kind in 2017. The album explores new territory for Hall, not just sonically, but in that it’s been released in instalments based on specific lunar dates, with the intention to counter the fashion of “fly-by-night” releases.

Speaking about the album, Trevor Hall says,

“There have been many hurdles and triumphs along the way. This album conveys the deep vulnerability of journeying through the unknown, as opposed to playing it safe.”

You can find Trevor Hall online on his official website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

Fans in the UK can see Trevor Hall this April when he tours with Nahko. Tickets are available here.
