The Grackle

An Afropsych act led by Kalu James, the visionary son of a Nigerian village leader whose music fuses the Afrobeat rhythms and textures of his homeland with the psychedelic rock and soul legacy of his adopted home, and multi-instrumentalist/producer Jonathan “JT” Holt.
Kalu’s music business journey has been as inventive and disruptive as his aesthetic journey and on the epic new album Garden of Eden, Kalu explores that disruption in all its forms, from the beautiful to the weird to the tragic.

Like American music itself, the sound of Garden of Eden is a tapestry composed of many disparate materials, bound by a shared American experience that cannot be fully appreciated without recognizing its international roots.
