Trevor Hall: Love +Peace=Unity: Trevor Hall's Spiritual Journey
House of Blues - Chicago, IL, USA - November 3, 2009
Trevor Hall is a reggae wizard. His music is a circular mix of fusion, folk, and rock, centered inside the reggae beat. His songs are emotional, inspiring, and they will rock you on a path to spiritual freedom. As the opening act for Matisyahu, Trevor and his band (Chris Steele -drums, Mario -bass) gave a strong performance showcasing a variety of songs while promoting their latest album simply titled Trevor Hall. At the nearly sold-out House of Blues, the enthusiastic crowd bounced, clapped, and kept their eyes glued on Trevor with his mesmerizing and unique style while he displayed a true love and belief in his music.
A few songs performed included Volume, My Beating Heart, and Where's the Love. He then rolled into the Indian inspired Om Shakti Om. The crowd favorite of the night had to be Unity. As Matisyahu joined him on stage to help sing Unity, the crowd went wild to hear this song about people coming together and looking up to the 'higher power.' Unity has such amazing lyrics like: I don't want a reason anymore about God above, God above/ I just want to melt away, in all His grace/Drift away, into that sacred place/Where there's no more you and me, no more they and we, just Unity/Yeah yeah, just Unity. As the band left the stage, Trevor appeared moved by the thunderous response he received and thanked the crowd for the support they showed. On a chilly autumn night in Chicago, Trevor brought in a warm reggae breeze and a sense of healing musical power to excite his fans. Now this is a kind of unity that everyone needs!
