Artist Fact Sheet: Trevor Hall | Sound Stories & Interviews | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Artist Fact Sheet: Trevor Hall

The singer/songwriter is set to play with the John Butler Trio at The Athletic Club

With a certain affinity for the deeper meanings and connections in life, Trevor Hall has been making music for others in that same boat since he was 16. Reading through many of his interviews, Hall makes it clear he doesn't consider his music a career, or doesn't look at music as work; it's something Hall does just for himself.

You can follow Hall on Spotify at Rampriya Das, where he just put out a playlist of his current favorite songs. - SUBMITTED

The music Hall makes is mellow, relaxing and often inspiring. It's some of the finer acoustic music you'll get to hear, and it fits as a perfect soundtrack to the scenery here in Central Oregon.

Learn more about Hall before he and the John Butler Trio perform at The Athletic Club of Bend with this Artist Fact Sheet.

Where's he's from: Hall was born and raised in South Carolina. On his 16th birthday, Hall's father took him to a friend's recording studio where he'd record his first album. After that he made his way out to California.

What's to like: Hall has this airy voice that just feels so vast. It fits great with his brand of folky, acoustic reggae music and makes his songs feel ultimately grand. He shares spiritual tales with precise imagery in his lyrics that bring to light this feeling even more.

Songs to start with: "Lime Tree," "Well I Say...," "Green Mountain State," "The Mountain"

For fans of: Jack Johnson, Nahko, Ben Harper

Random Internet Dig Fact: Hall recalls seeing Tom Petty perform at a festival shortly before his death and told online magazine Culture Collide that it "was one of the most amazing shows I've ever seen. That was a gift and something I'll never forget."
