PORTLAND, Ore. 10/12/2023 — Trailblazing artist J.H. Williams III will bring readers a new dimension of artistic experience for his co-creation with W. Haden Blackman—Echolands—with a new music and art project titled, The Sound and Paint Men, in collaboration with Hip Hop DJ and Producer, Jay Zotos. Its genesis was originally inspired by an image from Echolands.
Artwork from Williams III will tie-in with the creative process behind each song, with the two mediums inspiring and enriching each other when experienced together.
The album titled SPM 001: Resonant Voyage includes songs: “Avatar’s Lament,” “Mycelium Skratch,” “Healthy Jawn,” “Picture in your Mind,” “Free Thought,” and “Ethereal Drift.”
Both Echolands and The Sound & Paint Men are available now. The Sound & Paint Men can be found on all streaming platforms, including Bandcamp—and Echolands is available at comic shops, independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.
The digital edition of Echolands is available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
