ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Billy Jonas performance is an explosion of energy.
In singalongs, bangalongs, whisperalongs, as well as improvised songs,
his
primary instrument is the audience. Everyone becomes part of a
performance
that reaches out and ". . . touches even the most hardened of hearts."
(Fayetteville Morning News)

Concerts begin with a simple "tuning" of the audience; from there a
whimsical trajectory carries listeners through stories of life, love,
and
triumph over 'Murphy's Law.' Jonas' original pieces are played on
fanciful
"industrial re-percussion" instruments made from found objects. He
sings in
a clear tenor voice; his guitar work is adventurous, alternately
percussive
and lyrical.

Jonas' heartwarming work has been enjoyed across North America since
1987.
Previously a member of the highly acclaimed duo, "The Billys," he has
been
featured at prestigious festivals and venues nationwide (see selected
venues). Jonas has shared stages with some of the world's favorite
acoustic
artists, including Patti Larkin, Ani DiFranco, David Wilcox, Richard
Thompson, and Pete Seeger.

Jonas' recent CD, "Life So Far," sparkles with unique perspectives and
found
sounds. Songs filled with hope, yearning, wonder, and wisdom include
special
guests David Wilcox, Glen Velez, Robert Moog (on Theramin), and
Zimbabwe's
Black Umfolosi voice and percussion choir. Jonas also has released a
video
for younger audiences, entitled "Bangin' and Sangin,'" that has
garnered
critical acclaim, including a Parents Choice Gold Award, and inclusion
on
the New York Times "Best" listing.

Billy Jonas' performances will inspire, inform, and enlighten. His work
is
born out of respect and reverence, and seeks to honor the creative
energy
in everyone. Billy provides performances and workshops for adult
audiences
and/or family audiences.

Billy is accompanied by a full ensemble of singers and
re-percussionists at
larger venues.

fantastic - great energy!
This cd is so much fun, it really gives you the "Billy Jonas" spirit in your own home. I picked it up after seeing him perform "God is in" and "One" in person - it was such a treat, and he was so joy-filled, I had to get the disc - and I'm more than pleased with the whole album. Thanks Billy!

Incredible Energy-Awesome Lyrics
I bought this one after my brother gave me "What kind of cat are you." My kids will not listen to anything else. My two-year old walks around singing "Some Houses" and "Pharoah" all day. This CD is even better. I wish he would come tour in Rochester....

Cynthia Lynn

Energetic and awesome!
I especially like "God is in" and "My life so far". Billy's music on this CD is energetic and life enriching.

Amber

BEAUTIFUL!
I first heard "God is In" on NPR, and was hooked. I nearly had an accident writing down the artist and album title. I immediately bought this album, and cannot stop listening to it. 'Esoterica' and 'coup d'tas' are now a part of my active vocabulary. I love it!!

Sara Hickman

Perfectly Perfect & Born of The True Muse!
ONE totally blew my mind. It made me want to listen over and over. I still haven't gotten past the third track on this cd because I can't stop listening to the first three tracks, and I've had the cd for over a week. Thank you, Billy, for
inspiring me! Absolutely astounding. I am telling everyone about you.

Karen

This CD is great for people of all ages!
I first heard "God is In" at a sacred sleepover for women between the ages of 25 and 65 at our Unity church. The purpose of the sleepover was to share ideas and things that moved us along in our spiritual growth. I went straight to my computer when I got home and ordered the CD. I love it and can always depend on it to inspire me whenever I play it.

Sue Collins

"God Is In" is GREAT! Truly enjoyable CD.
My daughter got "What Kind of Cat Are You" and then I ordered this CD. I'd like to try more!

Matt McGyver

bwahahaha Mr. Rogers..... Billy Jonas is our friend....
I first heard God is in (God is Sin, Goddess in, God is Zen) on WMNF community radio in Tampa, and I've been tracking the CD for about 18 months, hopping Billy was coming down to play. Finally had to have it the other day and bought it and like so many of the other reviewers; I now have to buy copies for everyone.
Like so many others God is In really puts me in touch with the Goddess in everything (me) and brings me peace. But Billy sings to us on such a personal level that all his songs make me feel peacefull.
I'm really excited about the "What Kind of Cat..." lyrics and I'm off to buy it too.
The Billy Jonas as Mr Rogers comparison was too much, I love it.
Thanks Billy, namaste.
