Biography[edit]

As an eleven year old, Hall started playing harmonica with his father in South Carolina. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally. At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. During his senior year he signed a record deal with Geffen Records, starting his career as a professional musician.[2] While in Los Angeles, he was introduced to yoga and other spiritual practices from India, which had a significant influence on his music and his lifestyle.

Hall quickly broke through the music scene, having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, and joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Caillat

Hall’s self-titled debut album debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart at #7 in 2009, he was named one of the Top 20 New Artists by Music Connection magazine, in 2010 MTV named him one of the twenty emerging artists for 2010, and in 2012 CBS used his hit “Brand New Day” for the promo of their CBS This Morning show. Trevor's successful album Everything, Everytime, Everywhere, reached 80th on the Billboard 200 chart.

On June 16, 2014, Hall announced on Facebook that his forthcoming album, "Chapter of the Forest" would be released the following day, June 17, 2014. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts, and #17 on the iTunes overall albums chart.[3]
