In other words, just because making this record was a labour of love it doesn"t mean it wasn"t also frustrating. - Raman Kia
Raman Kia of Buddahead Raman Kia of Buddhead Great singer/songwriters can draw from their life experience to add emotion and depth to their lyrics. Digging deep into one's self-consciousness to create expressions of love and loss, difficult life-experiences, self-doubt or just struggling to pay the rent, can create an immediate bond with the listener, who can relate those trials to their own life story. Raman Kia, the creative force behind Buddahead, started out life with an experience that is probably unique among America's musicians. Through the age of nine, Kia lived in Iran, during a turbulent and war-torn period in that nation's history. It was there that he had his first exposure to music, both cultural and western. He started playing on a piano that was in his home and recorded his first songs. While he has not returned there since leaving for England as a pre-teen, being a child in a war zone, and experiencing the horrors and bloodshed of a repressive society, gave him an insight and early maturity that is evident in his perspective and his music. Now based in New York City, Kia and Buddahead, which is actually the evolution of Kia's work as a solo project, has released their debut CD on Sanctuary Records, Crossing The Invisible Line. Finding Kia in the in the midst of a hectic touring schedule which recently saw the band on dates with Adam Green of the Moldy Peaches, and a series of dates in California, Chorus and Verse caught up with the singer to discuss some of his influences and the story behind the making of Crossing The Invisible Line.

There were so many years of trying and so many setbacks that when I finally got the deal and started making an album I wrote an e-mail to my manager and said to him that it feels as though I am finally crossing an invisible line. He then wrote back and said that perhaps I should call my album that.

To that end I asked two artists, renowned painter Jacqueline Humphries, and Raman Kia of the band Buddahead, to speak about the political turmoil and their work.
Raman Kia of Buddahead: Alarmingly, with some ease. Frankly, I was too mesmerized by the whole circus.
