TREVOR HALL presents… THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS
The Fruitful Darkness is all around us… Aug 7 | Nov 3 | Jan 31 | May 29
Big love all around. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU so much for taking the time to support this project. I can’t begin to describe the excitement and passion I feel as we build this with all of you - THE VILLAGERS - who have been beside me for so long. THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS is truly a journey, a story of cycles, an exploration of sound, of light and dark, of life and art … It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done before, AND this is my first independent record ever; so, I decided to do something special for THE VILLAGERS this time around… THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS will be a year-long album launch. This will allow us to explore each of the songs together intimately and to hear all of the stories in full.
Rather than a traditional album release, THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS will be released to THE VILLAGERS throughout 2017 & 2018 as the songs are ready! Kickstarter supporters will receive 3 songs (w/cover artwork) each quarter around the full moon symbolizing the fullness of fruition from the dark sky of our consciousness, starting NOW!
“THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS is inspired by the internal journeys I have traversed in the last couple years of my life. Heavily inspired by astrology and the stars, the songs echo the lessons that came from my Saturn return … an astrological period that each one of us goes through in life. In some form or another, we all must journey into the dark. From this darkness, I believe that we can always draw light - from suffering, we can harvest the fruits of wisdom and compassion. This is THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS. It is a shared human experience, and therefore this album is one that I wanted to co-create with all of you - THE VILLAGERS - who have been supporters and friends throughout my journey.” — Trevor Hall
THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS will be released to The Villagers in 4 parts throughout 2017 and 2018 culminating into a full length album + bonus tracks! Kickstarter supporters will receive 3 songs (w/cover artwork) each quarter, starting NOW (Aug 7, Nov 3, Jan 31 and May 29), including the title track, “The Fruitful Darkness,” "My Heart, Your Heart,” and “What I Know” — PLUS a lot of great gifts to share with you to say THANK YOU
Check them out below...
This campaign means we can share NEW stories, videos, and inspiration with you all year long. We will be making this journey together because, with this project, you - The Villagers - are our record label. The more we raise, the more we can do together to bring THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS to the world!
“According to many traditions, the number 108 is sacred and auspicious. That is why we set the campaign at this number… for an auspicious beginning. It will take much more than that to bring THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS to light, but we’re leaving it up to our community & the universe to provide us with what we need. Let's make something special together” — Trevor Hall
GOOD NEWS: The first three tracks “My Heart, Your Heart”, “What I Know”, and the title-track “The Fruitful Darkness” are available for download as soon as you back this project! (Recorded with producers Seann Bowe and Lenny Skolnik at Howard Benson’s studio in Calabasas, CA)
Trevor and his team have spent months designing the best possible Kickstarter incentives for The Villagers. We hope you love it and will take this journey with us!
“These past few years have been some of the most deeply transformative and meaningful of my life. THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS is a project that I hope reflects that journey I made to who I am today. I believe this is a turning point, a change of season, and with your support, this could be the best season ever for The Villagers. I love this family and I am honored to be a part of it." — Trevor Hall

Risks and challenges
We've spent the last seven months (yes, 7) making sure The Villagers have the best experience possible with this campaign. We have a team working around the clock + hired a fulfillment company to ship rewards to you on time! We intend to get all backers new songs BEFORE anyone else gets their hands on them. Because without you none of this would be possible. Thank youuuuu Villagers -- we hope you have as much fun with this as we have!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
