Fistful of Mercy

Biography

There’s a song called “With Whom You Belong” on Fistful of Mercy’s debut album that sums up the simple, but affecting sentiment behind As I Call You Down — a nine-song collaboration among musicians Joseph Arthur, Ben Harper, and Dhani Harrison. A stellar tune that plays out between heartily strummed acoustic guitars and exquisite three-part harmonies, “With Whom You Belong” is about friendship. “While we were making the record, we all became good friends,” Arthur says. “The album is the culmination of those relationships.” Spend time around these three and their easy camaraderie is readily apparent. They banter like brothers and finish each other’s sentences. The album they’ve made together under the moniker Fistful of Mercy is shot through with that engaging chemistry. Deeply melodic and willfully groovy (thanks, in part, to world-class session drummer Jim Keltner), As I Call You Down shines with the aforementioned guitars, including some killer slide from Harper, and those undeniable harmonies. It’s the sound of three very experienced musicians, each used to running his own show, coming together and having a ball.
