Ben Harper, Ben Harper, Dhani Harrison and Joseph Arthur Porter SiriusFistful Fistful of Mercy of Mercy are the product of a friendship between the strengthening of three musicians. Ben Harper, Dhani Harrison and Joseph Arthur acoustic album debut as costume-which I’m calling today on the label falls Wish has a lot of laughs (“I just in hysterics since I started” said Harrison), a passion for the vocal harmonies (Harper was raised on The Carter Family, The Blind Boys of Alabama and The Byrds) and a special bond that goes back to skate parks and bathrooms rank.
The trio met with violinist / muse Jessy Greene, most recently the Foo Fighters fame at Studio-Sirius in New York last night to play some songs from the new album as part of the spectrum-a show that will air this Saturday.
The group appears to be either at the stage of blissful honeymoon these guys really do love each other very much. The five songs (“In Vain or True,” “As I Call You Down,” “Father’s Son”, “Fistful of Mercy” and “Things Go Round”) presentation of the mini album is among the most encouraging and friendly banter. . “I messed that one,” No, that one was my fault “” Sorry, I dropped twice. “” You can let go five times-is happenin ‘they admire each other. All agree Arthur was “the first loop of things cat and give it life on stage,” and there is compliance with Harrison who does has not taken the singer-songwriter Easy Way / exit to avoid comparison to his “old man.” They had a good time and all members seem to be anything over-excited that the first autographed copy of his file was just given to Pee-wee Herman in the lobby.
The creative collaboration began at The Cove in Santa Monica, a skate park frequented by Harper and Harrison. Harper referred to Harrison (wearing Vans violet) as a “sick, sick skater” who would have been in some good practices by its wheels and grip tape off and skating on the carpet during rainy days in English. Harrison reveals that Harper is “old school”.
Joseph Arthur Harper met in a “civilized conversation real” which came in a toilet stall. Arthur was dragged in by none other than Peter Gabriel, who was fired by Harper, who just wanted a moment of time Mr. Gabriel away from all the interruptions. Some years, sit-ins and text messages later, the boys Fistful of Mercy found themselves face to face in a room full of ukuleles, pedals, samplers, cords and cables- just as they were in the Sirius studio last night.
The album was recorded over three days at a rate of three songs per day to the House transportation in Los Angeles. They met at noon on the first day and 13 hours had their first song. Arthur described the experience as a waking dream where time seemed to last for years. He said that the mantra of the album is reflected in the song “I Do not Want to Waste Your Time.” Not too much thought, the songs were the conversation. Harper added that, in essence, the album took “three days and 40 years” because it took that long for everyone to get where they are.
It was Harrison who was pushed as I call you down to his last-folk sound borders and more throughout the occasional severe. He has a weakness for electronic dance music and had a hard time letting go the idea of the battery. So, a family friend and majestic, god-like drummer Jim Keltner was called to sit in the folder. Even with the advent of “Keltner powerful”, the group was not sure if the battery could work on the case. Keltner immediately proved its worth and had Harper on the floor laughing hysterically because in addition to his battery, he was himself to play. ”
As I Call You Down, apart from obvious three-part harmonies, defined the elements together and funk styles and collective talents of three musicians from different backgrounds. Regarding the name “Fistful of Mercy,” Harrison is sure to explain that it simply “the most powerful form of Kung-Fu.”
Fistful of Mercy will begin a week the two rounds of small unique places in the United States from November 9 in Seattle, WA. The tour ends on day 20 at Temple University in Philadelphia, but not before you go around places like the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and NY’s Apollo Theater.
