Homeless Producer Records Album in Truck

Shaolin Records is the independent record label founded by Richard Del Connor in 1984.

North Hollywood, California – July 1, 2014: Shaolin Records, the independent record label of Shaolin Communications, is releasing the new album by American Zen, End of the Line, recorded in a 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4-cylinder truck.

END OF THE LINE (11 songs - 12 tracks) by American Zen

American Zen has been inspiring audiences worldwide with their California folk rock music since 2005 with the release of their first album, LEVEL 1 = PEACE OF MIND. After releasing their fourth album on Shaolin Records, Richard Del Connor, known as “The Hippy Coyote” to his fans, accidentally became homeless the day before Christmas of 2011. After spending a couple months performing lion dances in Las Vegas, Nevada, Coyote, known as “Buddha Z” to his Kung Fu and Tai Chi students, was told to, “...hit the road.”

This story is told in the song, “Use Me,” which starts this musical journey of 11 songs ending with “Starting Over Again,” a flute instrumental song that sounds a little like “Bouree” by Jethro Tull.

The 12th song on the End of the Line album is “End of the Line - Scott Mix,” which was included because record producer Richard Del Connor was unable to finish mixing the album when another North Hollywood studio had to close its doors for financial hardship. Scott had hastily mixed together the album for Coyote and this mix of Scott has an awesome vocal sound.

Some distributors are including a free copy of the spiritual study of Vedic scriptures, Supersoul 13 - Discovering the Soul of God by Buddha Z. This book is an autobiography from 2013 when Coyote completed the screenplay, KUNG FU COWBOY ROCK & ROLL MOVIE 1, and finished composing the last songs of the End of the Album album.

Feature Story Themes:
Homeless life in Los Angeles
First album recorded in car?
Kung Fu Cowboy in covered wagon packaging Kung Fu Cowboy Rock & Roll Movie 1 for $20mil
New law in Los Angeles allows Coyote to legally sleep on street in his car
Stung by scorpion working Brad Paisley concert as stagehand causes screenplay rewrite with ghosts
Teaching Shaolin Kung Fu and Yang Tai Chi (Disciple of Wong Jack Man who beat up Bruce Lee)
Coyote is acting out all 4 members of American Zen
Coyote is a one-man band pretending to be 4 musicians

About American Zen
American Zen is The Hippy Coyote who fronts the band on flute and electric guitar. Coyote is the "Kung Fu Cowboy" who studies Shaolin Kung Fu, and with his recent record, LEVEL 4 = Kung Fu Cowboy PART 2 has become the world's most astounding musician playing drums, electric bass, slide guitars, electric guitars, flute, harmonica, and a variety of other instruments and percussion. Coyote no longer performs or records acoustic guitar, since losing his Alvarez 12-string on December 3, 2009. However, with hundreds of songs recorded with his acoustic guitar since 1974, Coyote says he prefers his Marshall amplifier and wah-wah pedal now. All songs, lyrics, and poetry are composed by The Hippy Coyote, who has also written the novel, SID'S PLACE, and created the websites for each LEVEL of American Zen's ascent toward Heaven on their Zen Buddhist journey to Nirvana.

About Buddha Zhen
Zhen Shen-Lang "Truth Spirit-Wolf" or Spirit Wolf of Truth (The Chinese always put last name first.)
Buddha Zhen was recognized for his teaching skills while an Advanced Student of Tai Mantis Federation in early 1980s. However, Buddha Zhen, then known as Richard O'Connor, even passed up opportunities to perform with David Carradine, only considering his Shaolin Kung Fu to be a hobby. After moving to Utah in 1991, unable to find work in the record business or movie business, Kung Fu and Tai Chi became the only way for Buddha Zhen to support himself in Utah while being a Mr. Mom to two kids. Shaolin Chi Mantis was founded in 1992 and in 1996 Master Zhen created the Tai Chi Youth nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity organization for troubled youth. Buddha Zhen founded the Buddha Kung Fu school in 2008 which includes the Buddha Tai Chi, Shaolin Kids , and 12 Step 12 Week Kung Fu Bootcamp programs.
