LeE HARVeY OsMOND has stayed in the kitchen table hypnotic groove for 3 albums so far and will remain in that groove till I throw dirt on it and lower it into the ground…

LHO is folk music with bottom end..

Folk music is fearful of bottom end ya know…

Afraid that some hips will shake and some cocks will get hard…

So we make folk music

Folk Music that sounds like it’s made by stoners when the strongest thing we indulge in is cups of tea and hummus ..

LeeHarveyOsmond_BeautifulScars_lo resCan you talk about the subject matter for “Beautiful Scars”?

I must admit that I let the spirit move me and lead me to writing in the themes that i do..

Addiction, Native Land Rights, Burning Beds, and One Legged Lovers all come around to the cutting board..

I drag everything into the present..

The present , the Now, allows some distance between and time and turns my work away from being shear documentation. It allows them to be writing instead of just typing…

As an example.. I found out I was adopted and 3 years ago just before I started writing BEAUTIFUL SCARS and even though I have not written directly into the mouth of this experience the impact of this discovery has been running though me constantly and my blood is in the songs so I guess this journey I’m on is in every song on BEAUTIFUL SCARS..

Along with this record, you also have created large format paintings, you lecture circuit talks and you have written a memoir as well. Where did this onslaught of creativity first come from?

I decided when I was a kid that I wanted to be an artist and I’m happy to say that I have spent my life tearing down that road trying to get there…

If I walk out into the street here in Porstsmouth, New Hampshire this afternoon and get hit by a car I will die closer to that childhood goal than I have ever been..

That to me is a successful life…

So the creativity has always been there for me.. In fact it’s there inside all of us… All we have to do is get the churches and governments and corporations out of our way to be able to recognize that we stand alone and that we have something to give the planet that will make it a better place.. That’s our creative energy…

Rave On ..
