The unfolding era of the music business has provided many fresh opportunities for artists to foster direct and meaningful connections with new audiences around the globe. Trevor Gordon Hall is a powerful emerging voice, albeit without words to his music, showing that combining honest heart felt compositions with precise technical virtuosity do not sideline an artist in today’s world but can launch a wider reach than ever before. With an exploding presence on streaming services like Spotify, YouTube etc, a tour calendar that has taken him all over the world, it’s safe to say that this is a new era for artists like Trevor to engage listeners from all cultures, languages, genres, and backgrounds.
Carl Tosten has a passion for guitars that began when his father bought him his first guitar at age 11. From his early
years in a small town in Eastern Washington, his playing centered around the electric guitar, performing with
various groups and diverse styles ranging from country to rock to jazz. In the mid 1990’s, after years of eclectic
listening and playing, he began to focus fully on the acoustic guitar, creating masterful acoustic fingerstyle
compositions which combine alternate tunings, multiple capos, percussive body slaps and right-hand tapping.
Known for his expressive and energetic guitar style, Tosten has been described as an “Acoustic One-Man Band.”
His self-produced solo recordings combine his unique and expressive guitar style with his strong and soulful voice.
He writes songs layered with warmth, intelligence, oblique humor and acute observation of human nature. His
dynamic vocals and rhythmic, percussive guitar style fill his performances with intense energy, stories and music —
weaving a web of writing, singing and playing that captivates and inspires his audiences. Carl has played with and or
shared the stage with, Brent Mason, Stanley Jordan, Tuck & Patti, Lila Downs, Lee Ritenour, Seymour Duncan, Stu
Hamm, Mike Stern, Rick Vito, Muriel Anderson, Nokie Edwards, Frank Vignola, Carl Verheyen, and The
California Guitar Trio.
