Today, The Troubadour’s Road is proud to feature Trevor Hall (feat. Emory Hall), with their song, “the old story,” off his latest album, In And Through The Body. The album was released on September 25, 2020, produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger), with additional instrumentation from Phil Cook (Megafaun) and Matthew McCaughan (Bon Iver), as well as vocal accompaniment from Emory Hall. Hall’s mother and sister also have vocal appearances on a song, making the album truly a family affair. The album was recorded in Durham, North Carolina and mixed at Great Stone Studios in Oakland, California (former home of Green Day) by Johnny Cosmic (Stick Figure).
The album is powerful, touching on a variety of themes that really speak to the listener, especially in these trying times of 2020. It is also released in a global pandemic, which eliminates the ability to tour. This, however, has given Hall the time to present his music in a variety of visual ways (many can be seen through his YouTube channel, with more to come).
“the old story” combines not only amazing depth of poetic lyrics, but incredible beauty in the vocal duo of Hall and his wife, Emory, who usually is capturing artistic moments with her photography. They performed the song, for this first time, on a live-streamed broadcast, through Nugs.tv, at the Boulder Theater. The entire show is available HERE, with donations able to be made through Paypal or Venmo (@rpd108) to support the band, crew and support staff at The Boulder Theater. You can see Trevor and Emory perform the song, “the old story,” at minute 49 of the broadcast.
The Troubadour’s Road hopes music fans can support artists anyway they can, especially in these trying times. Head HERE to support his music, merch, accessories and posters, and be sure to check out his website for all the latest Trevor Hall updates and future tour dates.
