Album Notes
Three independent artists have aligned spirits, minds and expression to form the Long-Hairz Collective-a blend of hip-hop, poetry, folk and blues music. The Long-Hairz remain rooted in the past, yet sing, rap and speak about a bright vision of what the future may hold.

Brian Babb, poetry/spoken word artist-"I cannot be captured by a summation of words whose meanings I do or do not know. Prayers speak into existence all that I am and burn to ash that which I am not. You can call me a twenty-first century Griot whose message is one of learning how to love in more liberating ways. I am the son of a life-long student who teaches passionate wisdom to all she comes into life-giving contact with, and I thank God for all my relations."

William Copeland, emcee, philosopher, poet-"In the beginning...was the word." William Copeland is a poet/emcee from Detroit, Michigan. He uses his art to express his fears and create new visions. Above all, the spoken musical form is a way for him to make connections. Known as the "Ill Wizzard," this versatile artist has delivered verses for weddings, poetry slams, political rallies, free-style ciphers and community centers. Will is often seen traveling with B. Babb and Spiritboy, making a "joyful noise" as the Long-Hairz Collective.

Joe Reilly, singer, songwriter, musician, ecologist-"I tune my guitar to the songs of my ancestors who sing constantly in my heart and allow me to free my soul and lift my voice. These things are my only weapons." Joe Reilly, a.k.a. Spiritboy, was born in 1978 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and remains strongly tied to the Earth and the land around him. His new home is in Detroit where he has brought with him a wealth of spiritual flames, helping to re-ignite the Ghosts of Motown into a fire of redemption. Joe expresses himself with voice and acoustic guitar through the songs he writes alone or with his fellow
brothers of the Long-Hairz Collective.

i like the cd it is nice
I liked the cd it was really nice I hope that you come out with another one pretty soon


In 2003 you guys came to my school and performed. I bought this cd and thought it was just amazing. I then gave it to one of my friends who also loved your cd. Me and him would always sing along to 1nce in a lifetime whenever we got together. My friend had pasted away in the winter of that year. So at his funeral we played 1nce in a lifetime. So I would like to thank you guys for this great cd and a great song to help me remember my best friend.



I really like the CD (despite the fact that one of my cousins is actually participating in the band). It's true, blue old school...meaningful with actual lyrics that harbor more content than BABY GOT BACK or I WANNA BUST A CAP IN YO' ***. Very down to earth and cool...

Only listen if you have an open mind, body, and spirit.

Saw you play with Annie and Bill at Fond Du Lac CC. in Cloquet - I have enjoyed your new CD everyday at one point or another. Looking forward to others in the future.
