Hollow Body Electric
Hollow Body Electric is one of the region's most accomplished and creative musical groups. The band features Johannah Harkness on keyboards, Tom Masucci on drums, Sheldon Bird on bass, and Peter Alexander on guitars and lead vocals. All four members sing, giving rise to a lot of three and four-part harmonies. Harkness and Bird also take the lead vocal on a number of songs, providing a rich mix of sounds in a classic rock mode.
This is one band that is not afraid to take on social and political causes. Alexander has gained recognition as the author and performer of "Begging for ChangeThe Healthcare Blues," which Amy Goodman has featured numerous times on her nationally-syndicated Democracy Now television and radio program. His 'We've Got to Change This World' has been adopted by many in the Occupy Wall Street movement as an anthem celebrating the "Ninety-nine Percent."
Hollow Body Electric's upcoming CD will feature several other songs with strong environmental and social justice messages. "We're living in challenging times," says Alexander, "And we can't turn our backs on all the troubles this world is facing. We would like our music to be a part of the soundtrack for a better world."
