Happy Rhodes


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Happy Rhodes is an American singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and electronic musician. Her vocal range reaches highs in which she sounds very much like Kate Bush did in many of her early works, and lows in which she has been mistaken for Annie Lennox. Her songs “When the Rain Came Down” on the album “Ecto”, as well as “Tragic” and “Winter” on “Many Worlds Are Born Tonight” exhibit this range.

Born Kimberley Tyler Rhodes but called “Happy” since infancy, she legally changed her name to Happy Tyler Rhodes at the age of 16. The title of her 1987 album has provided a name to what some have begun to call “Ecto” music.

There are several You Tube vids of Happy and, if you want to sample the ‘two-voices-in-one’ phenomenon, then her stunning version of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Here Comes the Flood’ should be a pleasing introduction.

    Comme PabloVirgo dans les commentaires précédents, j'écoutais depuis des années le titre "When the rain came down" en étant certain qu'il s'agissait d'un duo Annie Lenox - Kate Bush (que j'adore au passage). Quand j'ai appris qu'il s'agissait d'une seule et même chanteuse, j'ai vraiment été bluffé ! Depuis quelques temps ces albums tournent en boucle chez moi. Auteur, compositeur, interprète, vraie voix, originalité des compositions, chapeau bas ! Je ne sais pourquoi, je ne peux m'empêcher de la voir comme une Peter Gabriel au féminin. A peine plus de 200000 écoutes pour une artiste au tel potentiel me fait vraiment mal au coeur.

    Rainy-dog, then you have to listen to "when the rain came down".

    i could always hear the kate bush thing a little bit (although if you listen to happy more you realise that the happy actually has a more measured tonal quality - less screechy) but i never ever got the annie lennox comparison.
