Debut album - grokkin' the river
Released May 2010



Brian Shiva Haley is a singer-songwriter-musician based in Vancouver Canada. Spandaloka is his incredible band of musicians. He has been influenced by many genres of music including, but not limited to the following: roots, blues, folk-rock, country-rock, jazz, R&B, world-beat, and others. Artistic influences include: Neil Young, Tom Waits, JJ Cale, T-Bone Burnett, Daniel Lanois, CSNY, Leonard Cohen, Beatles, Nick Drake, and many more. The main influence, however, has been the ever constant ebb and flow of life itself.

The songs from the debut album – grokkin’ the river - are a reflection of the journey through life, love, and the great mystery of it all. The music has a familiar, classic sound, and yet is somehow contemporary and fresh. The lyrics explore the ups and downs of this journey we call everyday life, while at the same time they point to possibilities that offer something deeper. As with all journeys, there are the inevitable ups and downs, but overall life moves on and flows like a river. Brian Shiva Haley's debut album is about recognizing that flow, being in the flow, and ultimately, ‘grokkin’ the river’.
