New Mad Dragon Release
March 17, 2011 —
Local folk legends and MAD Dragon recording artists, The Spinning Leaves and Hezekiah Jones, have come together for a highly anticipated collaborative release that hit the streets, Tuesday, March 8 - The Spinning Leaves and Hezekiah Jones Performing as…Hezekiah Leaves & The Spinning Joneses. The music is presented as a single disc dual EP, with two sides consisting of seven songs each. Part one, entitled Hezekiah Leaves, generates a fun, electric and captivating sound while part two, The Spinning Joneses, is a dreamy, meditative acoustic set that explores the thoughts fears and sadness of our complex world. The individual sounds of both bands are clearly heard, yet are so eloquently intertwined that an entirely new sound is created.
