Halfhide

Halfhide

BandPop

Highly energetic and emotional singer/songwriter that aims straight for the heart. No holds barred. Raw emotion in all it's nakedness and harshness. Halfhide is producing his own material, thereby following a unique recording process that shuns HiFi notions.

Biography

Using his mother's name, who died the day after he was born, it is clear that Halfhide is going for real emotions. He has no time for compromise and a half-hearted approach. His lyrics are always real and reflect his inner struggles.
"Like Jim Morrison, I would like to write happy songs, but at the moment I can't."

His music however, is energetic and immediately speaks to the heart with its powerful melodies.
"I'm most proud of the melodies that come up when I'm dreaming. I record them immediately when I wake up on my cellphone. I wouldn't know what to do without a memo-recorder. Once I dreamt up an entire song. You'll probably be shocked by the singing on these morning recordings. I sound like I just woke up from the dead."

We won't be that shocked, because the songs Halfhide produces himself are far from smooth. Laden with ambient noise, the recordings share the simple and straightforward sound of the early recordings of Woody Guthrie.
"I always felt more at home with the originators, like Guthrie, Leadbelly, Robert Johnson and Hank Williams. It seems they were thinking much more out of the box at that time. In fact, there was no box. No label to keep the artist in its place."
