Bio: Ant Hatcher born Raymond Anthony Hatcher Johnson was born on April 28th, 1970 to Margaret Johnson and Albert Anderson in Harlem New York. Ant grew up amongst a myriad of Jazz musicians, Actors and Artisans from even before his era from Louis Armstrong to Cab Calloway and more. While in the United Kingdom, he discovered he had been missing the mixed cultures and was pleased to be accepted by the music community who’d shown a great interest in his ability and comedic approach to life. Ant Hatcher would stay there for over 17 years visiting Abbey Road studios on and off and meeting and performing with many of the musical heroes he looked up to since childhood. Metal, Reggae, classic Rock, classical and more. Camden Town would be the home of this young Harlem, North Carolina Prince looking to show everyone that he had become a King, and Camden Town was ready for him. Through those years Ant Hatcher was also known to thousands of children as he taught schools and did workshops on Native Traditional Culture, Song, dance Instrument making, and acting doing performances such as the Hemel Hampstead school with 40 kids with a play written by Ant about the greatest of all time ‘Muhammad Ali’. The Original African Indianz released their new album titled‘ the Thunder Tracks' ..An album which many who have listened have felt a 'new' energy yet totally 'reflective & timeless' an elemental masterpiece. With blazing tracks such as ' Zounds like Thunder ' which include the backing tracks of Jazz Greats Cab Calloway's 'Za Zu Ze' , and Harmonic Pastures (parts 1 & 2) a San Francisco inspired Flute Manage which screams into the soul like a screaming eagle and Down Sout an already critically acclaimed video on youtube now released on audio. To 'I' and Yo Conscience both blistering rock tracks which compels the listener to interact in inner dialogue yet send the dancing form in reckless abandon, this album has something for everyone and indeed something that everyone is looking for.
