For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else.
Here is some fake 3rd person:
Paul Chesne (born June 4, 1976) is an American rock n’ roll singer-songwriter and guitarist.
He has traveled throughout the United States and played well over 1200 shows since 1999 including cutting his teeth playing upwards of 150 times at the infamous Kibitz Room in Canter’s Deli. He also held court with a 9 year residency at O’Brien’s Pub in Santa Monica.
He has written over 200 songs and released 5 full length albums and an EP featuring (here comes some name dropping):
Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam, Louvin Brothers), Mitch Marine (Smash Mouth, Dwight Yoakam, Tripping Daisy), Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart, Lana Del Rey, Ray Lamontagne), Keith Gattis (Dwight Yoakam, Kenny Chesney), Skip Edwards (Dwight Yoakam, Keith Richards, Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams), The Webb Sisters (Leonard Cohen), Elvis Perkins and Willie Chambers of The Chambers Brothers.

The current backing band has been together for several hundred shows and features Eric “Dutch” Suoninen (guitar), Jason “J-Sonic” Chesney (bass) and Shane Considine (drums).
The cover of the 2005 release “Wet Dog Man” features a painting by noted guerrilla political artist Robbie Conal.
We are like here’s everything we’ve got. And some stuff we don’t. Lay it down on the line. Hopefully it will touch you in some way that promotes empathy for your fellow souls. It’s the futuristic blues or something. It’s an emotional clusterfuck or epiphany as it were. It is the chaos and rhythm and wonder and ecstasy and the blues. Better known as rock and roll.
Paula Montondo and Rebecca Stout, both veteran recording musicians who spent years in the alternative music scene in Nashville and the eastern US and are now joined together with their quirky 1920s-30s style music. Paula on ukulele and vocals and Rebecca on autoharp and vocals, they blend their fun original songs (some about technology set to the sound of the 1930s) mixed with some lesser known songs of the past.
Paula Montondo was a recording engineer for 20 years and played drums with several touring bands and played guitar and wrote in her original alt band ShaShaBoom who gained a following in the south and had regional air play as well as songs used for film and television. Since in LA she has unplugged and gone acoustic!
Rebecca Stout is also a world famous flat foot dancer and is featured in the International Bluegrass Music Museum and she heads up the dance portion of the annual Topanga Banjo Fiddle Fest. In addition to her years as a unique alternative and rap artist, she now also sings in Nevenka, an Eastern European Folk Choir.
Born from the tradition of bringing good stories to music, Brother Billy’s first release “Don’t Fall Asleep on the Tracks” has conjured up spirits of the past with tales of jilted love, pointed historical commentary, and folks having raucous good time.
With the evocative puberty anthem “Red Ribbon” to the cynical retort of “Your Grand Design” he gets right to the sweet, the sad, and the naughty.
His Hopeless Choir is a revolving door of many talented musicians that give a little to help a lot in lifting up the spirit of his oh-so-spirited music.
From the snow-capped mountains of Oklahoma to the pale-painted deserts of Louisiana – from the coal-firing cost of California to the sweeping serenity of New York City – everyone could use the kind of smile that comes from spending a little time with Brother Billy.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a musical polymath who combines an indie DIY aesthetic with a questing hippie spirit and a relentless work ethic,” Particle Kid (Micah Nelson) has spent much of the past decade in constant evolution, having gone from making DIY bedroom recordings and performing at underground house shows to collaborating and touring with Neil Young, and sharing the stage with the Saharan Tuareg group Tinariwen, and most recently opening for The Flaming Lips and The Claypool Lennon Delirium. He is also a prolific painter, animator and experimental filmmaker, currently working on a series of music videos for his upcoming Particle Kid album “Window Rock” (coming July 26 from OAR) as well as a fully animated short film version of Neil Young’s dystopian synth-rock album from 1982, TRANS.
