Bliss Hippy's song writing is deceptively simple, childlike and often funny - yet at the same time surprisingly profound.
- Steve Cahill, Executive Director, Great American Song Contest

(Bliss Hippy's) music strikes the perfect balance between meaningful, socially conscious messages and hilarious commentaries on life

They just make you want to smile and roll around in the grass

Who is Bliss Hippy Anyway

Bliss Hippy is Richard and Maureen Hall, a folk duo based in the Missouri Ozarks. They are two time winners of the Great American Song Contest. Richard and Maureen have been sharing their music for more than 25 years, and they have toured from coast to coast over the last five. Their songs range from the sublime to silly; profound to down right irreverent, and everything in between. Mostly original, mostly in tune, and always fun! Read More about Bliss Hippy

Better Way Music Video
