ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ok, so the name Athens Boys Choir can be a bit deceiving but you can’t blame Harvey Katz, a Jewish Transsexual man living in the Deep South, for having a sense of humor about the whole ordeal. This “choir” is a one man lyrical machine gun with spitfire unapologetic spoken word and hip hop that transforms even the most skeptical into into spoken-word loving, transsexual embracing, Athens Boys Choir fans.

Katz has been touring as the Athens Boys Choir since 2003, hitting the stage with such performers as Ani Difranco, Katastrophe, Alix Olson, Michelle Tea, Leslie and the Ly’s, poets from HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, and more. From sports bars, to living rooms, to large capacity venues Athens Boys Choir has shown a flair for breaking barriers within communities with his heart on the the sleeve, accessible pieces and irresistibly dance inducing hip hop. As Out Magazine wrote in 2006, “Katz avoids falling into the common spoken-word trap…and instead uses engaging wordplay, razor-sharp wit, and hip-hop rhythms.”

Being a out Transsexual, Katz’s spoken-word often becomes a platform for education and activism, but all work and no play makes for one intense performance so he lets loose with sarcasm, pop culture references, and video’s featuring Barbara Streisand as Yentl and sassy footwork by the stars of the 1979 hit “Roller Boogie”.

With four CD\'s already released and a fifth due for a September 2008 release, Harvey Katz/The Athens Boys Choir has established himself as a force in the spoken-word/queer/pop culture/homo-hop movement; you choose how it moves you. oh, and it will move you. That’s a promise!
