Above: Promotional Graphic of Trevor Hall.
A mix of reggae, folk and roots-rock, all blended with a sharp pop sensibility, the music of Trevor Hall lives somewhere between the anthemic grooves of Matisyahu and the gentle melodies of Jack Johnson. Trevor has also aligned himself with many charitable organizations and performed last year on Capitol Hill in Washington DC for the Arts Advocacy Council along with Bob Weir and other luminaries fighting to keep the arts in public schools. He is also an avid surfer, and recently performed at two benefit concerts for the Surfrider Foundation although with his career in full swing there’s been little time for him to hit the beaches.
Stripes and Lines brings the old and new together with hints of Built To Spill, cemented with a driving rhythm section reminiscent of U2 or The Police, adds a touch of Velvet Underground; and tops it all off with three and four part vocal harmonies that suggest the great vocalists of the 60s. It’s a potent combination of high energy with musicality and subtlety that perhaps only could have been achieved after years on the road.
The concert will take place on September 18, 2011 at the Belly Up Tavern. Show begins at 9:00 PM, doors open at 8:00 PM.
