Trevor Hall, a California-based singer-songwriter originally from South Carolina will bring his original blend of catchy pop/rock infused with tasteful shades of reggae to the historic Sheridan Opera House on Wednesday, June 27 at 8 p.m.
If his 2009 self-titled Vanguard Records debut represented the young musucian's struggle with finding himself, his follow-up, "Everything Everytime Everywhere" is a courageous affirmation that he has become the man he has been seeking. The warm linearity of his prior work gives way to a mature artist hitting his stride, an image that persists throughout this body of work, from the easy reaggae slide of the opening "The Return" and the anthemic "Brand New Day" straight through to the momentous closing track, "The Mountain."
While on "Trevor Hall" the singer wove Sanskrit chants into pop and rock-laced songs, he now feels that the underlying themes of devotion and community remain while he focuses less on making them feel so apparent — he never sacrifices his music for a message. Rather, his music is the message. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the upbeat "Brand New Day," in which he confidently casts aside his fromer self to welcome new possibilities.
Hall easily exudes that rare ability to write universal songs that appeal to broad audiences in the vein of two of his heroes, Ben Harper and Bob Marley. The strong focus on love on "Everything Everytime Everywhere" quickly burrows itself into our minds, even though the love he discusses is more celestial than earthly. Hall continually employs poetic metaphors to represent "internal heights," the ability of each human to recognize their highest self, so on the epic track, "The Love Wouldn't Die."
