Earthman Experience

What happens when you blend the sensuality of Sade, the spiritual resonance of Enya, the power of a mesmerizing live performer and Afrobeat genre pioneer, Fela Kuti, whose seductive masculine voice is already well-known around the world? The phenomenon is known as THE EARTHMAN EXPERIENCE featuring lead vocalist Richard "Earthman" Laurent. In 2007, Earthman joined forces with fellow Haitian DJ Hard Hittin Harry (born Harry D'Janite in Port-au-Prince, Haiti). Harry became Earthman's DJ and music partner and shortly thereafter they were on stage at New York's Club SOB's, the offiicial debut of The Earthman Experience...however initially as a duo.

THE EARTHMAN EXPERIENCE core collective consists of Earthman on lead vocals, congas, and guitar. DJ Hard Hittin Harry on turntables & backing vocals, Shayshahn "Phearnone" MacPherson on violin, Senfu Stoney on percussion, Rakiem Walker on saxophone and also serving as Musical Director, Eleazar Shafer on Trumpet, Larry Peoples on drums, Entrfied on keyboards, Soleil Laurent and Tasha Mabry on backing vocals. There have many members of THE EARTHMAN EXPERIENCE throughout the years, however the core members will always be present surrounded by an amazing supporting cast of musical talent..

THE EARTHMAN EXPERIENCE has graced the stages of Brooklyn Academy of Music's BAMcafe Live Music Series, The world-famous Apollo Theater, Target First Saturdays at the The Brooklyn Museum, Blue Note, Shrine, SOB's, Le Poission, Rouge, African Museum, of Nassau County, and more. The band was featured in the Daily News, Caribbean Life newspaper, and FOX 5 Good Day New York to name a few.

Earthman's album, "The Beginning" is a strong testimony to his powerful music and remarkable vocal prowess. Songs like "Some Will Rise" and "Bang For Freedom" are dance staples in the clubs with "Freedom" paying homage to Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. "Clear Skies" and "Put Myself in Heaven" demonstrate a rock-edged style with a mainstream pop appeal.

As THE EARTHMAN EXPERIENCE prepares for a new album project, expect a slew of singles to hit the clubs. The latest single, "Fighting For Life" is produced by Jephte Guillaume on the Sacred Rhythm Music headed by world-renowned DJ/music producer Joaquin "Joe" Claussell.

"Live Life" featuring Soleil Laurent on lead vocals is produced by DJ Jihad Muhammad of Bang The Drum. Look out for THE EARTHMAN EXPERIENCE hitting stages everywhere this Summer!
