about

“Ready Chief”, a down-tempo release by Anahata Sound is step one to launch a new electro-pop moniker “HOPSCOTCH” in 2011. “I’m going to be focusing more on HOPSCOTCH, so I wanted to give fans another lil swim in my soft side before I high dive.” No doubt from her diverse first album “Scores of Silence” that Anahata has set herself up for a long career full of sonic exploration and growth. The vibrant new EP “Ready Chief” colors the ears with organic magic & stellar production. Mastered by John Greenham at Studio 1340 in San Francisco. Cover art by Leighton Kelly.

“Birds n Bees for a LIL G” a collaboration with Wazulu, is a dedication to her vision of freedom for the youth she has worked with in Oakland Juvy Halls leading meditation groups.

“Heavens Choir” is a collaboration of spoken word featuring Killah Priest (Wu- Tang), J. Human and Anahata, with jazz legend Benny Green on the piano. The Hip-Hop/ Spoken-word set to Greens piano & Anahata’s production, cooks up a melting pot of non cliché spiritual sonic display.

The EP is a dedication to the people of the First Nation. Given Anahata’s native ancestry and extensive travel of the US, she feels it is of up-most importance to honor the native peoples of America through song and dance.

Track Name: Anahata Sound - First Nation
Can you hear the leaves are makin music
Leavin me to dream
Spiders weave like spirits
Breathing trees whisper lyrics

Let out all of the laughter cry and please don’t hide
Let out all of the Laughter inside beauty abides

Can you hear the babes are makin music
Singin songs to heal
Angels mend our spirit
Speaking trees can you hear it

Let out all of the laughter cry and please don’t hide
Let out all of the Laughter inside beauty abides
Track Name: Birds & Bees for a LIl G
He says write me a song about the birds and the bees
Centuries all summed up in a song and meant for listeners to sing along

The Game is what I was born into
So hollar it’s the life I loves
These walls these ways aint my kingdom anymore 2x

Brick and cement only 4 walls in sight all day all night
When the phone rings will it be them coming to get him
And he’s ready to grow willing to change
stop postin’ on the streets and bang
in a way that wont leave him dead or under one bed sheet

The Game is what I was born into
So hollar it’s the life I loves
These walls these ways aint my kingdom anymore 2x (for those who cry inside)

His voice echoes through the hall
A choir of kings sings along…
The Game is what I was born into
So hollar it’s the life I loves
These walls these ways aint my kingdom anymore 2x

So how’s that honey for the birds and the bees
Got down on my knees and that was all that came to me

The Game is what I was born into
So hollar it’s the life I loves
These walls these ways aint my kingdom anymore 2x
Track Name: Twinkle Toes
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are! 2X

When the blazing sun is gone,
When there's nothing he shines on,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are! 2X

Im a traveler in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark.
I could scarcely see where to go,
If you did not twinkle so

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

In the dark blue sky so deep
Through my curtains often peep
For you never close your eyes
’Til the morning sun does rise

Twinkle little star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Track Name: Sippin On Stars
I was born a country girl
Tried that city on to see if it would fit me
Then I packed my bags and wondered free
Like the world was my country home

I.. prefer to be a gypsy
Moving around from city to city
You see there nitty gritty is just to much for me
Oh lord wont you move me to the country …
To the country

I’ve had this vision since I was a little girl
Layin in the middle of a meadow… full of wildflowers
Just sippin on time

I prefer to be a gypsy
Moving around from city to city
You see there nitty gritty is just to much for me
Oh lord wont you move me to the country …
country

give me some of those trees and that sweet honey bee breeze
the American dream

I’m here on the city front lines doin’ time lovin it while I’m here
Cause soon I’ll be goin home
Starbound by angels to my home

I prefer to be a gypsy
Moving around from city to city
You see there nitty gritty is just to much for me
someday lord wont you move me to the country please…

somewhere out there in those stars in the country
move me god someday to the country
