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.

Track Name: Adam Gottlieb & OneLove ft. LO Kari - heart beat
heart beat

you can’t kill the heartbeat
it’s startin to beat ya, it’ll start to teach ya, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the art, or freedom, the art of freedom, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the harder you beat us, the more that you feed us, yea,
you can’t kill the heart beat
the star keeps beamin, the heart keeps beatin, yea

never has a tyrant entirely silenced his defiance
nor a line of riot cops in time overrided the riots
never has revival of genocidal ideas triumphed
long enough, right, to quiet all of the fighters though they’ve always tried
even after years and centuries of treaties proven hollow
Wounded Knee and DAPL, see the Sioux uphold laws you don’t follow
even after Jackson, slave-catchers, Alabama, Laquan McDonald,
Watts, Holocausts, and Ayotzinapa, you can’t stop Hip Hop, no!
definitely not in any of my favorite spots in Chicago
in the city of John Vietnam, Haymarket Martyrs, DuSable,
every minute that I’m still breathin, best believe I’ma be following
where the wind blows, heart still beatin, feelin the flow of the Tao..

Oh,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
it’s startin to beat ya, it’ll start to teach ya, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the art, or freedom, the art of freedom, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the harder you beat us, the more that you feed us, yea,
you can’t kill the heart beat
the star keeps beamin, the heart keeps beatin, yea

[LO Kari]
Have you ever been hated?
Conversation / Know your color /
At this rate we're chasin /
Truth and light / but would leave your brother /
What more is to life?
I can't seem to shake this feelin
What's wrong is right
I'd rather focus on winning
Cuz every time I turn on the news
It's back to back to back that my people dyin
And it's a shame we pretend like
Every thing is fine and /
And what good is a lion
If they cut off your feet as a cub?
I do not fuck with your hugs
How can I trust you after all the things you've done
To people who look like us?

[Crowd]
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Get up, stand up!)
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Stand up for your rights!)
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Get up, stand up!)
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Don't give up the fight!)
of Mama Nature, Mama Mama Nature, (Cuz I never give up the fight!)
of Mama Nature, of Mama Nature! (Cuz I never give up the fight...)
