Everything Everytime Everywhere, the latest album from Vanguard Records recording artist Trevor Hall is set to be released this week.
The 11-track album was produced by Jimmy Messer and boasts such musicians as Aaron Dugan, who has longtime played for Matisyahu (guitar), Brian Lang (bass), and Aaron Sterling (drums).
Influenced by his musical heroes Ben Harper and Bob Marley, Hall showcases his ability to write songs about life, love and community set to pop/rock/reggae beats that should appeal to the masses.
Everything Everytime Everywhere is the follow-up to Hall's self-titled album, which was released back in 2009.
"With the last album, I was exploring more," Hall said in a press release. "I was going through a struggle with myself, and all that grittiness came out. With this one, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I had much greater conviction."
Look no further than Hall's lead single, "Brand New Day," to find the conviction he speaks of. The pop-rock anthemic tune speaks of letting go and embracing the present. The uplifting song is a great track to lead off with, because it paves the way for Hall's lyrics to leave their musical message.
Standout tracks on Everything Everytime Everywhere include "Fire," "Te Amo," and my personal favorite, "Dr. Seuss." What I like in particular about these three tracks is that they highlight the the versatility of Hall's voice. There's a unique quality to his voice that truly separates him from other male singers today.
"Fire" is one of those tracks that as soon as you turn it on, it's gonna make you want to move. The overall feel to the track is rock with reggae flavor thrown in for good measure. Cherine Anderson lends her voice as she throws down an impressive lyrical flow.
