INFORMATION ABOUT HUSSALONIA
WHAT IS NEFARICO™?
Nefarico™ is an international soap company that purchased Hussalonia in 2011. One of the stipulations of this ruthless, corporate buyout was that the Hussalonia Founder was disavowed use of his birth name in association with Hussalonia. Nefarico™ regularly interferes with the creative output of Hussalonia, imposing its corporate will upon The Hussalonia Founder. As such, Hussalonia has released two albums of soap jingles (see here and here) and Nefarico™ Soap Operas, an EP of radio dramas, all thinly-veiled commercials for Nefarico™ soap products.

HOW MANY ALBUMS DOES HUSSALONIA HAVE?
This is a tricky question to answer, as a number of early titles have been deleted from the catalog, while early singles and EPs were absorbed into the Miscellonia series of compilation albums. Further, because of short song lengths, what one calls an album, another might call an EP. An easier way to answer this question is that Hussalonia has over 400 songs registered with BMI and over 40 unique titles available for download on Bandcamp.
DOES HUSSALONIA TOUR OR PLAY LIVE SHOWS?
No. Over the years, The Hussalonia Founder has sporadically played a small number of live shows in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, but he does not enjoy performing the way he enjoys writing and recording.
CAN I USE A HUSSALONIA SONG IN MY INDEPENDENT FILM/ART PROJECT/YOUTUBE VIDEO?
Probably. Just contact us and ask. Most releases are published under a non-commercial Creative Commons license. Please note that remixes will not be possible as The Hussalonia Founder erases all his masters once they are mixed.
WHAT DOES THE NAME HUSSALONIA MEAN?
The name was taken from a series of stories written in Polish by the Founder's grandfather. It is a country, a family, and a cult. The name significantly implies the word "alone" in the center, yet the "onia" suffix suggests a republic of people. The stories were intentionally burned by his grandfather just before his passing.
