Trevor Hall
Trevor Hall
As an eleven year old, playing harmonica beside his father in South Carolina, music quickly became Trevor’s most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally. At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. There, Trevor was introduced to yoga and certain spiritual practices found in India, which greatly influenced his music and his life journey. During his senior year, Trevor signed a record deal with Geffen Records and his career as a musician formally began.
Trevor quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, SOJA, Brett Dennen and Colbie Callait. Trevor’s quick rise on the scene, however, was ripe with challenges that conflicted with his spiritual life and devotional practice. In order to parallel his life’s path with the messages in his music, Trevor moved into a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When not on tour, he lived as a monk and devoted his days to spiritual practice and service. His involvement with the temple affected his music and his music quickly became his practice.
Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. 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. The precious lessons and experiences that he has harvested from his journeys East have moved Trevor to return a service to those whom have colored his music and his life so beautifully. Trevor uses donationscollected at his live shows to help support an ashram in Allahabad, India, the home of his Guru, where underprivileged and orphaned boys and girls are given the chance at a better life and a traditional Vedic education.
In 2013 at the age of 26, after touring consistently for ten years, Trevor decided to take a break from the stage and go on an extended pilgrimage to India. There he spent many weeks studying under a classical Baul musician born and trained in the villages of Bengal. Trevor returned from his trip and retreated deep into the green mountains of Vermont and Maine where he spilled all that he had learnt onto the page and into song.
Hall has released a successful series of musical albums. In 2009, Hall released his Vanguard Records debut, a self-titled album, which featured the single “Unity,” written and performed with his longtime friend, Matisyahu. His follow up album, Everything, Everytime, Everywhere, debuted on the iTunes Rock Chart at #3, iTunes Top Albums at #12 and #8 on Amazon Movers & Shakers. The featured single, “Brand New Day” was used as the music bed for the CBS This Morning Show. Hall’s 2014 release, Chapter of the Forest, debuted at #3 on the iTunes Singer/songwriter Chart and #17 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart.
His latest album, KALA, written in Hawaii and recorded in LA, was released August 21st, 2015. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart.
Will Evans
Will Evans has spent the last decade as the primary song writer and drummer/ front man for the roots rock outfit Barefoot Truth. Will recorded four full length albums and several EP's of his original music with the band. Their most recent release, "Carry Us On", debuted at #10 on the iTunes Rock Chart. With Barefoot Truth now on an extended hiatus, Will has opened a new chapter in his musical journey.
His first solo release landed him in Entertainment Weekly as being right on target in the "Bullseye Of The Week" and warranted a #4 spot on the Northeast Billboards. Will's entry into the Guitar Center sponsored "Search For The Next Great American Songwriter" also brought him national attention. Out of over 10,000 entrants, he was chosen as one of the nation's top ten finalists.
In his live performances, Will uses his impressive looping skills to combine his drumming background with his highly energized and entertaining acoustic style. When Will is on stage, the crowds always get to their feet and he always gets to their hearts. Will has shared the stage with many top artists including Crosby and Nash, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, State Radio, Badfish and members of Dispatch.
Christina Holmes
Christina's career began when she was sitting in her dorm room, playing the ukulele and singing a song she had just written. Her roommates walked in and couldn't believe they had never heard her sing. There was an Open Mic night on campus and they insisted she sign up and perform. Initially wary, Christina relented and that night she sang "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles and "I'm Yours'" by Jason Mraz. She was so nervous she thought she completely butchered both songs, but after her set, a man came up to her and told her that she had a gift, and that she needed to find it within herself to use it.

From that day on she played every chance she could get. She was still just as nervous, but she worked harder with each performance to improve her skills and her set. After a few years of playing everywhere from open mics, bars, and smaller local venues to busking on the street, she thought it was time to try something bigger. She came across an ad for auditions to be on "Amateur Night at the Apollo" and knew it was the perfect opportunity to finally show what she could do. She auditioned and on the spot was asked to play at their next show. On June 6th, 2012 Christina took the stage at the legendary Apollo Theater, and the audience response was overwhelming. Christina says "It was an absolute honor to be able to play on that stage, and I couldn't believe it when I received a standing ovation."
