THANK YOU TO MY CROATIAN FRIENDS!
Harold Perrineau in an interview with Croatian daily – Večernji list, thanked his Croatian friends with whom he is collaborating on his debut 'Seeker'. Talented actor, known for her roles in hit series 'Lost' and 'Oz', the 'Matrix' saga and box office hit 'Romeo Juliet', said that his ‘Croatian music link’ started with making the most out of an ugly situation. He met the main 'culprit' for the album, Tomo in der Mühlen in New York on September 11. Their children attended the same school, located next to the WTC and since than, the two families became great friends.
'In fact, Tomo and I were just playing around with music. It was something we did for fun while hanging out, but afterwards, when we listened to the songs, it became clear that we should record an album’, says Harold. Besides Tomo, many other internationally known Croatian musicians and producers collaborate on the album: Baby Dooks, Koolade, Dash, Zvonimir Dusper Dus, Tin Ostreš... Jadakiss, Kurtis Blow, and Vernon Reid will also guest on the album, so keep your ears opened in the coming months.
Harold did not neglect his acting career. Coming soon to theaters is his latest work, a film by Roger Donaldson and produced by Tobey Maguire. In ‘The Hungry Rabbit Jumps’ Harold will start next to Nicholas Cage and Guy Pearce. It seems Harold will be a success in the world of music, and who knows, maybe we’ll see him soon in a musical!
