about

Recorded live and outdoors in Oakland, Grammy-winning producer and author, Ian Brennan (Tinariwen, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Zomba Prison Project) delves deeply into the voices of the homeless community— those that are largely ignored and even maligned. It is a community that he has worked with dating back to the 1980s. Needless to say, it is a highly unique, ultimately heartbreaking album with “street” cred and raw-ness that sounds unlike any other. Ranging from old school beat-boxing to Free Jazz guitar to ballads and electronica, this is a one-of-kind, esoteric, and diverse record akin to rarities like Hollerin’, Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica, Alvin Lucier's I Am Sitting in a Room, and Elvis Presley’s Having Fun With Elvis On Stage, et al. and it’s a full on old school, gut-punch punk album.

One would be hard pressed to find recorded performances anywhere displaying greater tenderness and vulnerability.

Homeless Oakland Heart: "Not a homeless person, just a person without a home.” Voices from the streets

These are the inescapable fixtures of hyper-capitalism. The people that are walked by and ignored as if invisible. Or worse, maligned and even victimized. These are their voices, these are their stories.

Any and all profits will be donated to Coalition on Homelessness.
