Think acoustic. Think reggae. Think alternative.
Trevor Hall is an American singer from South Carolina, US. He is most recognised by his single "Other Ways,"which was featured in the hit movie Shrek the Third. Trevor Hall typically releases beautiful melodies that are both incredibly meaningful and spiritual.
To date, Trevor Hall has released five albums; "Lace Up Your Shoes," "The Elephant's Door,""This Is Blue," "Trevor Hall," and "Everything Everytime Everywhere."
Artists similar to Trevor Hall include Pete Francis, Citizen Cope and Current Swell.
I was fortunate to see Trevor Hall live when he supported Citizen Cope during their N. America tour a couple of years ago. Although I had never heard of Trevor Hall before the Citizen Cope gig in NYC, I was really impressed by his music and performance.
When I saw Trevor Hall live I picked up a very Bob Marley esque feel to his performances. Songs which I particularly liked were "The Lime Tree," and "Unity." He was an incredibly passionate performer and had the entire audience captivated by his music. I will add however his music may not be for everyone. His music oozes tranquility and calmness - a perfect soundtrack for when you are lounging on a caribbean beach during a very hot day. So, if this kind of music is right up your street I urge you to check him out, you won't be left disappointed.
