Trevor Hall with Will Evans
September 17 • 7:00 pm• $20 – $25
On Monday, September 17, Soul’d Out proudly presents Trevor Hall’s “The Fruitful Darkness” Tour at the WOW Hall with special guest Will Evans.
Trevor Hall is celebrating The Fruitful Darkness with a plus-30 city Fall Tour. “Welcome to The Fruitful Darkness,” says Hall. “This is my first independent album without a label and because of you we were able to make it happen. Our Kickstarter campaign was the most funded music campaign in 2017. It truly takes a village and I am so thankful for each and every one of you.” Growing up playing harmonica beside his father in South Carolina, music quickly became Trevor’s most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs. At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy. During his senior year, Trevor signed a record deal with Geffen Records. He quickly broke through with such early accomplishments as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Callait. In order to parallel his life’s path with the messages in his music, Trevor moved into a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When not on tour, he lived as a monk. His involvement with the temple affected his music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting. 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. “The Fruitful Darkness is inspired by the internal journeys I have traversed in the last couple years of my life,” explains Trevor. “In some form or another, we all must journey into the dark. From this darkness, I believe that we can always draw light — from suffering, we can harvest the fruits of wisdom and compassion. This is The Fruitful Darkness.”
Will Evans spent a decade as the primary songwriter, drummer and front man for the roots rock outfit Barefoot Truth before releasing two solo albums
