“It’s a Sad and Beautiful World” now available


There are some musicians who defy genre limitations, whose work spans such wide spectrum that it simply does not allow them to be labelled or categorized.  Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer JC Hopkins is just such an artist.
With the July 12 release of It’s a Sad and Beautiful World, Hopkins returns to the early 2000s when he recorded an album featuring an incredible array of musicians performing on its eight tracks. Levon Helm and Garth Hudson of The Band join Hopkins on two songs (“Upside Down” and “Walking Cane”), with Hudson staying on board for another five, playing accordion, Hammond organ, drums, piano, mellotron and melodica. Other notable folk and rock musicians who joined Hopkins in the studio near Woodstock for the session are Teddy Thompson (son of folk icons Richard and Linda Thompson) and Martha Wainwright, the singer/songwriter who is the daughter of Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle and whose expansive resume includes work with Snow Patrol and Hole.
