Half-handed Cloud is an interesting phenomenon. John Ringhofer, the man behind the namesake, is as joyful and frugal as his music. An economical thinker, Ringhofer prefers the subway over a taxicab, is a recycler of plastic, a compulsive note-taker, and a habitual optimist. When not on tour he lives in the California Bay Area & works as a part-time custodian. Half-handed Cloud is able to ensconce complicated theological concepts into playground song without condescending to his subject or to his listener.
