Trevor Hall (born November 28, 1986 in Hilton Head, South Carolina) is an American singer, lyricist and guitarist. Hall has found inspiration through meditation and trips to India. He has helped out an Indian school with donations from his shows and he donates a large portion of his earnings for starving children in India. He is also a committed vegetarian.

At the age of 16, Hall moved to California to attend Idyllwild Arts Academy, in the San Jacinto Mountains east of Los Angeles. While a student at IAA, he studied classical guitar, and met people from all around the world who influenced his life in a profound way.

During his senior year, Hall signed a record deal with Geffen Records. He continued to focus on his music after graduation, moving to Los Angeles and working with such producers as John Alagia and the Laboriel Brothers. Other than an EP, none of the records that Trevor recorded were released and Geffen dropped him from the label in 2008.

Immediately after his departure from Geffen, Hall began to write more music. He soon had 14 new songs under his belt along with his friend and percussionist Chris Steele. They released an album, “This is Blue” in 2008.

Hall's debut solo album, entitled “Lace up your Shoes,” was released in July 2004. A live album, “Trevor Hall Live,” followed in 2005. He then released a 4-song EP entitled, “The Rascals Have Returned” in January 2006.

He then released his second live album “Alive & On the Road With Chris Steele” and a studio album, “This is Blue” in October 2008. His self-titled album was released in July 2009 after being signed by label Vanguard Records. Featuring the first single “Unity” the album debuted at #199 on the Billboard 200 album chart, also debuting at #7 on the Billboard Heatseeker's Albums chart.

A third live album, “Chasing the Flanme - On The Road With Trevor Hall,” was issued in 2010. In 2011, his studio album, “Everything Everytime Everywhere” was released through Vanguard.
