Jacob Hemphill, lead singer/songwriter and guitarist with the American reggae band SOJA, is as provocative an interviewee as he is a songwriter.
On the phone from Haunted Hallowed Recording Studio, in Charlottesville, VA, where the band recorded their latest album Poetry In Motion (ATO Records) a conversation about the album freely moves from politics to religion to the passing of loved ones to a discussion about Charlottesville as emblematic of the fractious society we live in.
“Charlottesville, it’s the same thing that happens when I tell people I live in Georgia, they say you live where?” Hemphill shares.
“Some people think of the people there as living a step back in time but racism, sexism, ageism and classism exist everywhere, it’s an inherent recurring problem among the human race, in a world that awards separatism, competition and accumulation, taking more than we need. That’s why we haven’t figured out the cure for cancer; cancer does what only humans do, it takes more than it needs. When cancer doesn’t take more than it needs, it’s benign.”

On Poetry In Motion Hemphill, 37, aims his lyrical fire at the consequences of overconsumption (“More”), bemoans the societal separations that lead to war (“Bad News”) and is “taking shots at everything in the world today” on “Life Support.”
