Joe Reilly

 

continued

Reilly's music and lyrics are clever and poetic and often playful. He blends hip-hop, blues, gospel, world rhythms, and traditional American Indian styles, and I find the combination of deep spiritual truths with hip-hop to be brilliant and satisfying. For instance, the groovy, soulful "Infinite Hearts" has become a regular prayer for me when I'm giving in to the dark side:

The room in my heart is infinite,
there's no limit to what can fit in it and if
love is what I give, love is what I get.
It's the balance between my body and spirit.


Joe Reilly makes music that flows through us — calls us closer to who we want and need to be. It's joyous, humble, and clear — and no one gets a nose broken. He celebrates the release of his new CD, Planting Gardens, at the Friends Meetinghouse on Friday, September 29. He'll also appear at Crazy Wisdom on Friday, September 8 (see Nightspots).
