About this project

http://www.thehumanrevolution.org/

The project in Human’s words:

Small Town is my take on country music. I’ve often loved country music but scowled at the lyrics: alcohol, military, cocaine, I just don’t relate to it. This is about growing organic food, saving seeds, living in community, sunny days and building a culture of peace. Its country music for the recovering alcoholic, for the ones actively engaged in opening their hearts and bettering themselves to make the world a better place. It’s the essence of what America could be with the right influence. This is that influence, with a heartbreak song thrown in to help ease the transition. This one is meant for the masses, thanks for your help in helping us bring it there. (See Budget breakdown below)

Some Words from Willow Love:

I'm pretty sure it was a full moon or close to being one. There was a mist in the air after a long sundrenched day. But still a crack in the sky teased with a toss of stars. I was out on the prowl for some freedom. I went out looking to unleash the day and free up my hips, to find a tribe and smile knowingly as we moved. My body wanted to twist and turn inside out. I longed for the twang of the strings and the pound of a drum and the flare of my skirt to make patterns in the air. I’m not sure how I ended up where I did, but there I was and there was Human Revolution playing the tunes. You know when you meet someone, hear the magic, the mystical vibrations they create and then your life changes forever? Yes, that’s how it was.

There was something in his raw honesty, his open heart, and fast hands. His smile was crooked when he sang and his eyes where only half-way open but the shine from them was piercing. He owned the stage, humble and fierce. Like a child unleashed, I danced, jumped and sat still while taking it in. Like a goddess freed, I moved each curve and let my hair speak for itself. Music for my soul, I thought. Music to inspire me to go out there and be the change I came Here for. In one melody I was empowered to stand tall and walk lightly on this miraculous and alive planet, to care for her as my own Mother and to share the seeds of love in all of our gardens. In another song, I knew my power and held it high. Human Revolution paints true evolutionary sounds for our ears, music that will hit you like a wave of light and there is nothing left but to grow. This music tempts me to make love and tell everyone else in the world to do the same. I want everyone to hear it and dance, to feel it’s rich layers of funk and ecstasy spread around and around and around some more.

Music is Revolution. Fewer and fewer musicians spread the word of Evolution, the sound of peace, the rhythm of Love. In these times we need sweet and powerful music to soak in and feel free, but we also crave a deeper message. A message that empowers us to shine and change, we crave a message that we can pass on. The Human Revolution embodies the seed sound and has planted it in our hearts. We listen and we grow, reaching for something new, something more, something the whole world must have in order to become One.

One tiny light from the smallest town can glow brilliantly, spreading from heart to heart, and from one town to the next. This light knows no bounds. Peace can only glow brighter, so long as we nurture this light with love. Human’s love is made through the power of his music. Human is an artist, peacemaker and love visionary. Backed by The Human Revolution, a rotating cast of master musicians who’ve grooved with the likes of Willie Nelson, The Byrds, Avett Brothers, Crosby Stills & Nash and Cadillac Sky, Human crafts music in the change-agent tradition of Mystic Americana. It’s that roots-rock country s with a large splash of soulful transcendental jammin’. It’s roll your hips and skip. It’s get close to another and get low. It’s raise your arms high and open your heart to the sun and sing along. It’s slide around the room barefoot. It’s get your hands dirty in your garden and then take a bike ride. It’s sing your children to sleep. It’s the music for our times; whole, organic grooves with a spark of fire. Help Human create his 7th studio album, Small Town; a beacon of consciousness for the love of Earth, and a testament to the power of peace. Your donation is a magnificent offering of the light inside you. Your gift will help produce, record and distribute the musical message of The Human Revolution. Together, we can show the world that love always prevails. Together we can show the world that music is the messenger of human change.
