Singer-songwriter Trevor Hall is currently on tour with Dirtwire, the “swamptronica” acoustic group comprised of David Satori of Beats Antique, Evan Fraser of the Dogon Lights, and Mark Reveley of Sol Norda.
In celebration of their tour together, the musicians teamed up on a brand new track, “Strength in One”, as an exercise from afar before even meeting each other in person.
“I came up with a little idea and sent it to them via email. They then sent me an idea and this back and forth went on for a while until we really locked in on what we liked,” said Trevor Hall about the collaboration.
“The song is really about strength and power in unity,” he continues. “During these crazy divisive times, it’s important for us to remember that we are all in this together and that no progress will be made unless we move forward as one people. We hope this song inspires unity amongst listeners.”
The members of Dirtwire added to the story:
Psyched up for our upcoming tour opening for Trevor Hall, we reached out to see if he was down for a collaboration. He was, and kicked it off right away with a vocal melody he had recently written over a tambura and acoustic guitar line. We started building a beat and recorded some instrumentation alongside it, until just days later when he sent over the complete song with verse, chorus, and lyrics. We were blown away, and started working round the clock to create the supporting production, complete with a swamp-womp drop section and uptempo revival double time beat infusions. Harmonica, banjo, drums and whamola bass united under Trevor’s soaring vocal to create our collaborative version of an electric-organic anthem, debuted live at the 9:30 club in Washington DC five days into the tour.
Now, as Trevor Hall and Dirtwire approach the halfway point of their tour together, Live For Live Music is thrilled to premiere the collaboration one day ahead of its official release. Check it out below
