Half-handed Cloud is an American recording project, based in Helsinki, Finland since 2015.[1] It was started in 1999 as a one-man band by John Ringhofer, who created the band name based on an occurrence in the Old Testament.[2] The majority of Half-handed Cloud's albums have been released on Asthmatic Kitty Records. His previous band was Wookieback with Matthew Vollmer and Brandon Buckner. Ringhofer, a vegetarian, lived rent free in return for his custodial services at a church in Berkeley, CA for a decade. John Ringhofer has collaborated with Sufjan Stevens on Half-handed Cloud's What's The Remedy? 7-inch,[3] among other works such as Thy Is A Word And Feet Need Lamps[4], and 2014's Flying Scroll Flight Control.[5] Daniel Smith of Danielson and Sounds Familyre is credited for helping to establish Half-handed Cloud's early days, and has been a frequent collaborator with John Ringhofer.[6]
