Happy Accidents, the latest Billy Jonas recording, is funky folk music for the whole family. Itâs musical medicine for the mind body and spirit of young and old alike. Itâs a splendiferous sonic sojourn into the near and far reaches of fun and fantasy, possibility and purpose, word-play, wonder, heart, and hope.

The 19 songs feature 15 originals and 4 adaptations of traditional tunes, all destined to inspire and inform. For instance, âEyes Wide Open,â âYou are Not Alone,â âGet There,â and âOpen Sesameâ each provide a different âmusical mapâ for navigating challenging situations; âTo Be Oneâ and âHollow Bambooâ enliven the soul; âCabezaâ teaches Spanish; âHappy Accidentâ explores four mistakes with wonderful outcomes; and âWhat Kind of Dog are You?!,â âVitamin Alphabet,â âKnock Knock,â and âOne Tutu too Manyâ are just plain FUN question-answer songs that invite the listener to guess-along and sing along.

The songs include Jonasâ trademark homemade âre-percussionââ drum set, as well as a glorious panoply of found sounds (rubber bands, body percussion, door squeaks, apple cider jugs), exotic kalimbas and marimbas, conventional instruments (guitars, bass, piano, banjo, accordion, tuba) and 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-part vocal harmonies.

The finale of the CD is the Wake Up Suite,â a series of 5 songs that trace a young personâs morning rituals. Jonas and an 8-year-old friend sing duets designed to be easily learned and re-sung, to help families move their morning process along with as much fun as possible. The pieces include "Gotta Get Up," "Two Minute Shower," "Eat Something!" "Brush Your Teeth," and "Totally Ready to Go."

Happy Accidents is Jonasâ 7th recording, and his 2nd âfamilyâ CD. Built on a foundation of voice and percussion, with strong, memorable melodies, it has something for everyone, regardless of age. It was recorded over the course of a year, primarily in Asheville, NC, with the help of co-producers Bill Melanson (from The Billys) and Adam Johnson.

Happy Accidents features more than 40 local musicians and a host of nationally and internationally renowned co-conspirators, including David Wilcox, Moira Smiley, The Fire Cracker Jazz Band, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, River Guerguerian, Don Porterfield, Jake Wolf, Ashley Farmer, and Eliot Wadopian.
