Here’s a snippet of my live set from my little lovesick-Valentine’s run with Lung’s Kate Wakefield. She was kind enough to accompany me on backing vocals and cello while playing her own solo set (which is amazing, if you haven’t checked it out). There are a couple new songs here to make you weep.
My buddies at Prayer Line invited me to be an extra in their new video for their single “A Martyr’s Death,” an ode to the 1975 horror movie Wicker Man (I’m the bunny in blue). It was a lot of fun and a lot of work, but director Mike Thompson and his crew as well as actress Julie Streble did an amazing job.
As the rate of hate crimes continue to increase in the U.S. and a political movement towards homogeny swells, my heart was broken thinking about the prospect of losing those you love most—or yourself becoming a target—as I watched footage from last year’s Charlottesville “Unite The Right” rally in which a white supremacist drove a car into a crowd of people of color and anti-racist activists, murdering Heather Heyer.
On Friday, August 17th, I’m digitally releasing a song called “Love in the Time of Hate” that was inspired by the white supremacist attack on anti-racist protesters at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, killing activist Heather Heyer last year.
The track is a collaboration with producer/sound designer Gabriel Walker.
It’ll be available on all your favorite and least favorite streaming and download sites.
