I didn't sweat at all today while writing this thanks to my breathable bamboo T-shirt I got last Thursday night from Arbor. Just ask Trevor Hall and his band members who are now decked out for life in some comfy and breathable (gosh are they breathable) Arbor bamboo tees and apparel. Trevor Hall along with Drummer Chris Steele and Bassist Mario Pagliarulo put on a performance Thursday, June 4, in front of a friendly and sauced up crowd at the Arbor store in Venice Beach, CA.

Arbor teamed up with Vanguard records to help promote the release of Hall's self titled album coming out July 28. "Trevor has been a friend of ours for a few years now, and we've been big fans of his music," says Arbor Sales and Marketing Manager Drew Hopkins. "He puts a lot of thought, care, and soul into his music and lyrics, which is something we connect with since we put a lot of thought, care, and soul into our work as well."  Arbor feels that the surf, skate and snow scene wouldn't be complete without art and music so they decided to team up with some of their favorite musicians to help promote their music, the Arbor Collective and most of all their sustainable bamboo apparel.

Trevor Hall grew up in South Carolina where he learned to play the guitar and sing at a young age.  Since then he's been living in So Cal and recording music inspired by bands like Matisyahu, Ziggy Marley and Rusted Root.  His newest song 'Unity' which was co written by Matisyahu can be seen here
