Story

This is a poem I wrote in 2008.  I have performed it a few times with Natural History and with the Dread Resistors, but I recorded it for the first time today, 3/17/17.  I laid down tracks with dumbek, udu drum, tamboura, guitar, and sitar, and then added the voice.  Enjoy!  I hope you find it thought-provoking.  Paradise is never far away!

Story

I recorded the rhythm tracks to this -- Johnny Yuma on drums, Miri Wolf on percussion, Jared Carrozza on bass, and me on rhythm guitar -- a few years ago, at my old studio at Maple Ridge.  Then I added the vocal, pedal steel, and harmonica on 5/14/10.

Story

A scathing new spoken word release by King Happy.  It features Johnny Yuma on drums, Miri Wolf on percussion, Jared Carrozza on bass, and Barry "King Happy" Hyman doing the rap, the rhythm guitar, and the pedal steel.

The rhythm tracks were recorded at Johnny's house near Putney, VT in 2008, I added the spoken word fall 2009, and laid down the pedal steel track and did the mix 4/19/10.

Watch out -- this is King Happy at his most uncompromising.  Not designed to make you comfortable!
