Thrive Global Interview

I had the pleasure to interview Trevor Hall. 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. Hall’s music is an eclectic mix of roots, folk, rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting which echo with the names and teachings of divinities. His music maintains a refreshing and universal message that has captured the hearts and ears of fans around the world. 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. Trevor’s annual trips to India also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. Beyond his intention to spread love and healing through music, Hall also collects donations to support children’s education in India and has continuously donated to charities and relief funds.

Can you share the most interesting story that occurred to you in the course of your music career?

It’s hard to say. I’ve had so many amazing, crazy, blessed experiences. I give thanks for all of them. However, the most important moment of my music career is when I got to play my album KALA for my grandmother before she passed away. She was the inspiration behind the whole album. A few years before she passed, I was with her when she said, “Isn’t time such a wonderful gift?” That phrase became the seed for the whole project. Fast forward to when the album was being released … the record company told me the release date would be August 21st 2015. I agreed and didn’t think much of it. A few months later, we found ourselves out on tour. When we’re on the road, it’s hard to remember where we’re going or where we’ve been because everything is moving so fast. So I had no idea that we had a day off on August 21st and also had no idea that our day off was right next to my hometown of Hilton Head. It was crazy. I got to go home on the release day, totally unplanned, and play the album for my grandmother. To be with her on that day and to give back to her what she gave me was truly the most blessed experience of my musical career.
