(We Need) PEACE! my people at war but they don’t even know it so the poet’s got some more to say this is a propaganda battle comin for your brain cuz that’s the war terrain, we bout to storm it, rain, cuz the perfect slavery’s chainless / the perfect traitor is blameless the perfect racist ain’t hatred / it’s mind enslavement: the matrix oppression came with and stays in the USA’s DNA we gotta name it to change it but corporations are faceless we gotta wake up the nation / mental emancipation collective poeducation / infectious loving vibration we need a visualization of life with no exploitation human communication / we’re talkin real reparations! We need PEACE! What’s that? That’s a lot to ask when every piece of our society’s a robbery act, where violence is the normal way of life, a common fact, and then on top of that, our nature’s not in tact, we want PEACE! What’s peace? Just a lack of war? but what’s that even mean when we know what that’s actually for is just to capture more, get a high capital score, so the elite keep getting richer while they tax the poor, Hey, ain’t THAT the War? Cuz that’s the bigger violence. and isn’t the one biggest war the bigger silence while they spout their lies to keep us all reliant, they keep closing public schools, that’s more massive firings, That’s WAR. And war is when there’s folks on the street, on every block holdin a cup cuz they got nothing to eat when there are women, children lyin, dyin, tryin to sleep when people keep gettin beat, locked up and killed by police, we need PEACE! I mean we need a whole new game where everybody gets to eat and gets a home to stay in, we can finally distribute water, clothes, education, health care and make these basic needs society’s basis, that’s PEACE, we’re talking Revolution now, cuz that seems to be the one solution, how else are we gonna feed the people who computers ousted from their food and housing, are we human now? We want PEACE! That means we need justice too, that means democracy for everyone not just a few, so we can turn our selfish culture into something new I wonder could you trust in me, if I could trust in you? cuz that’s PEACE, and that’s the overwhelming need, not just lack of war but actually a mental leap to finally becoming that which we were meant to be we’re talking death and rebirth, you best believe, we need PEACE! Yea / We want PEACE! Yea / We need PEACE! Yea / We seek PEACE! Yea / We breathe PEACE! Yea / We are PEACE! PEACE! PEACE! PEACE! PEACE!

about

We make music for the movement: songs inspired by the growing social response to the revolutionary times we are living through, meant to inspire those who are in the struggles to secure such basic human rights as housing, food, healthcare, clean water, a livable planet, education, and peace and justice in our communities, as well as from the police/justice system, etc.

We believe all of us who are struggling are in one way or another fighting for a new world where peace is the reality of our lives, where there will be no need for poverty, hunger, pollution, prisons or police. We believe such a world is not only possible, but necessary. And we believe music is playing an important role in gathering, galvanizing and inspiring this movement, as it always has.

"All of You," is our first full album - an epically ambitious project that has truly been a creation not just of our band, but of the many voices and visions of ordinary people in the movement who have inspired the songs: "all of you." The project is our musical ode to that movement: the ongoing struggle for social justice, human dignity, and survival of the planet. As the songwriter and leader of the project, Adam tells the story of our times from his own perspective: a young man from Chicago who is rooted in where he comes from, and is wrestling with what it means to be a person of conscience in America today, while championing a revolutionary vision that encompasses the whole world.

We describe our music generally as "Folk/Hop Fusion" because there is no single genre that accurately summarizes the blending of musical styles that define our sound. While our debut EP, "Cicada Season," promised an eclectic repertoire with five songs that blended Acoustic Folk-Rock with Chicago Blues, Reggae, and Pop overtones, "All Of You" represents a clear expansion on that basic sound while remaining grounded in the same musical roots.

This 12-song LP showcases a much wider range of the styles that OneLove blends, including Hip Hop, Funk, and even a touch of Ska at the end! The variety of featured instruments - and particularly the addition of live horns on over half of the songs - not only adds fun, but also marks a definite level-up in the fullness and sophistication of our arrangements. Intentional collaborations with powerful featured guest artists LO Kari, El La Katrina, and Diana Zwinak add new layers of meaning to the songs, and make the messages come through even more powerfully. Finally, the use of sound design elements to weave into the musical journey a significant collection of audio samples from interviews and street actions further brings the movement to life within the songs, and adds meaning to the overall concept of the album.

The title of the album applies to both the individual and collective: on the individual level, life demands that you show up with your whole self, with all of YOU. This is especially true about the crisis we are living through in these times. And on the collective level, it will take ALL of us to completely transform the world from the old society to the new one: to create a world where all of us can truly be all of who we truly are. So that's who the album is for, and who the fight itself is for: "All of You."

The band has been working on the earliest songs from the very first practice it ever had, in the summer of 2014. So in a sense, this album has been over four years in the making. We began the recording process in early February of 2018, and began the mixing/mastering phase in earnest in December of that year. The early phase of the project was partially funded by a City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) Individual Artist Program Grant (IAP Grant) of $2500, and the final phase of the project was partially funded by a crowd-funding campaign that raised almost $5,000. The use of both public grant money and crowd-sourced funds in the creation of this album also feels appropriate to the overall spirit of the project.
