Harold Payne is his name, actually, and he’s a multi-platinum songwriter, singer, collaborator, and master improviser, as well as a Posi award winner. He’s written songs for artists from Peter Paul and Mary to Snoop Dog. We can drop a few more names too: Rod Stewart, Patti LaBelle, Kelly Rowland, and Damon Albarn from Gorillaz and the Blur frontman. There are more, but you’ll have to listen as Malayna and Stacy talk to Harold and learn more about him, and his part in Contagious Optimism Live!
He wrote us a song, (and performed a few more!) and shared about walking a path through India among other things. Together we connected a ritual practice from Bali to America’s Gangsta culture, and spoke of authenticity, spontaneity, vulnerability and trust!
