âHopingâ is the last track on the underground CD âAxis: Bold as Evilâ by tissues4issues (2004). Geoff Cleveland wrote the music and plays piano, and Sunny Kim wrote the bilingual lyrics and sings. The song expresses the feeling of unrequited love, which makes it more about âhoping against hopeâ than just âHopingâ.
The emotional and lyrical feeling of this song is intended to provide the listener with a human experience, as if Sunny & Geoff are in the room telling you a sad story through music. If the listener wells up with tears, weâve done our job. A couple of songs that have a similar feel, if not sound, are Thad Jonesâ âA Child is Bornâ and Joni Mitchellâs âThe Last Time I Saw Richardâ.
tissues4issues was a short-lived collaboration between Sunny Kim & Geoff Cleveland (with bass & drums on the other, as-yet-unreleased tracks) in Colorado from 2002-2003.
Since then, Sunny Kim has become an established innovator as leader of Myth of Mitch and a member of Prana Trio. As a âsidemanâ, she has performed with many masters of music, including recordings with the (jazz trombonist) Roswell Rudd Quartet (âKeep Your Heart Rightâ, 2008), on which she displays the range, swing and personality of a jazz virtuoso, and bassist Trevor Dunnâs hard rock project Madlove (âWhite With Foamâ, 2009), where she shows her rockstar side. She currently lives in South Korea.
Before tissues4issues, Geoff Cleveland released the critically acclaimed jazz CD âDonut Stormâ (1993), was leader of the avant-garde jazz collective The Emergency Broadcast Players (1995-2000, including the 1997 CD âOnly a Testâ) and was a founding member of the âpost-apocalyptic electro-jazzâ band Sons of Armageddon. The Emergency Broadcast Playersâ members included trumpeter Ron Miles and current Kneebody members Kaveh Rastegar (bass, drums) and Shane Endsley (trumpet, drums). Since tissues4issues, Cleveland has most notably been the leader of Hate Camels, a band that plays his heavy metal & jazz-inspired compositions, most of which are tributes to dead satirists (comedians & such). Hate Camelsâ 2007 CD âDeath Comedy Jamsâ is still popular, especially the âhit singleâ âMitch Hedbergâ. He still lives in Denver where tissues4issues was formed.
