Raised on an island in South Carolina, singer/songwriter Trevor Hall realized at a young age that music was more than just a passion - it was, rather, his life’s art. At sixteen, he recorded his first album, soon after which he left South Carolina for Idyllwild Arts Academy in California. There he studied classical guitar and was also introduced to the practices of yoga and meditation, which would greatly influence his life and his music.
Hall’s music, a blend of roots and folk music with hints of inspiration from India, has led him to a series of sold-out tours and collaborations with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd and Nahko & Medicine for the People.
Trevor Hall's Chapter of the Forest (2014) and KALA (2015), debuted at #3 and #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart respectively. He is currently touring around the US and Australia. While on tour, Hall collects donations to support children’s education in India.
Hall’s latest album, The Fruitful Darkness, became the #1 Kickstarter Music campaign of 2017 (#30 of all time out of 53,000 Music projects) and is being released in three song installments on specific lunar ☾ dates, culminating in a 14-song deluxe edition release, June 1st 2018.
January 2018 will also see the debut of the single/video, “What I Know” directed by Emmy Award Winning director, Dan Huiting (Bon Iver)
share an experience that motivates you to share the loveyourbrain message
My wife's sister, Christen O'Donnell, passed away at an early age from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Sharing the Love Your Brain message provides me with the blessing of honoring her life and her spirit. I am extremely grateful to Kevin and Adam and everyone else at Love Your Brain for providing this platform and opportunity. It has been a beautiful journey to see how much Love Your Brain has grown and taken on a life and energy of its own.
What does love your brain mean to you?
For me, The Love Your Brain message goes beyond the subject of TBI. It's message extends to all people regardless of their class, gender, race, or spiritual orientation. We all have a brain and it is our duty to take care of it. What we think effects our environment around us as well as the world at large. Love is the strongest medicine. It is more powerful than electricity. By loving our brain, we love everyone and everything, including ourselves. It is truly a universal message.
How do you love your brain?
I love my brain by practicing yoga and meditation which helps me clear my head and focus my mind. I love my brain by trying to eat strong and healthy foods. Most importantly, I love my brain by laughing at myself on a regular basis
