Live from the Current: Trevor Hall
Another in my series of live posts copped from the pages of MPR station 89.3 The Current. Trevor Hall stopped by last week and turned me on to the guy that spent the last few months opening for Matisyahu.
I have this passing infatuation with the idea of soul. It's a concept that can't necessarily be defined or fenced in. It's a drive-by abstraction -- a subjective manifestation of capricity. (I'm not sure that capricity is a word, really.) Soul cannot be outlined using the tools of temper, tone, cadence, and weight. It cannot be linked to a physiological interaction.
You have to just hear it, and you'll get it. White guys are rare to find with soul, but I'm pretty sure that Trevor Hall has it.
