Singer-songwriter Trevor Hall is coming to Vashon

Update: This show has sold out.

International touring and recording artist Trevor Hall will play a show at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Sept. 13, at Open Space for Arts & Community.

The show is a coup for island music promoter Debra Heesch, who is presenting the concert along with Open Space.

“This is one of those shows I have been working on getting to the island,” Heesch said. “It took three years, and now Trevor and his band are coming.”

Raised on an island in South Carolina, singer/songwriter Hall has been pursuing his passion for music since a young age. At 16, he recorded his first album, soon after which he left South Carolina for Idyllwild Arts Academy in California, where he studied classical guitar and was introduced to the practices of yoga and meditation. These spiritual practices have continued to greatly influence his life and music. Hall also collects donations to support children’s education in India and has continuously donated to charities and relief funds.

Hall’s music, a blend of roots and folk music imbued with his understanding of Eastern mysticism, makes him a leader in what Heesch called “the burgeoning conscious musical community.” Along with numerous pilgrimages to India, he has also completed a series of sold-out tours and collaborations with artists such as Steel Pulse, Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd and Nahko & Medicine for the People.

His previous full-length album releases, “Chapter of the Forest” (2014) and “KALA” (2015), climbed high on the singer/songwriter charts and were supported by extensive tours around the United States and Australia.

“The Fruitful Darkness,” Hall’s first independent release — supported by his fans who are collectively known as “The Villagers” — comes after a decade of recording for established labels such as Geffen and Vanguard.

Hall has described the album as conveying “the deep vulnerability of journeying through the unknown, as opposed to playing it safe.”

The album itself is being released unconventionally, in three to five-song installments on specific lunar dates. The full-length album premiered at No. 4 on the Alt Charts and is the most successful of Hall’s career yet.

A press release said, “Hall views the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience.”

Tickets cost $22 and $40 and are on sale at openspacevashon.org.
