Open Letter – New Release

Over the last few years there have been an ever-increasing number of “open letters” aimed at various political factions having a go at every possible injustice. When I started writing this song there were a few of those letters going around, some even ended up in the writer having a pleasant lunch with the addressee…

I have never been muchof a letter-writer so I would obviously rather write a song. In it I wanted to catch as much of the despair present in today’s world as possible but I also wanted to leave the blame open, because I personally believe that there’s nobody that’s really in control, we’re all just players in a game. If we want to make a difference we’re going to have to change the rules and rewrite the book on how we measure things.

If we continue along a path where we have to struggle, first to stay alive, then to prosper, finally to gorge ourselves on idiotically priced luxuries (in order to prove our status), and in so doing, measure success by a dollar scoreboard then the world as you see it now is the result.

We must also question the role of government, its purpose, its goal and decide whether what we have designed and implemented can achieve those goals.

So here’s my open letter, it’s free, you can dowload it and you can share this link with your friends.

 

 

Pay No Mind – New Release

This is a song I wrote over the last three weeks. It seems that my new songs are starting to take on more socio-political subject matter. It will be interesting to see how that goes.

As with other ReverbNation releases this is a pre-release to the full, re-engineered version that will be released on my AirborneMusic site at a later date.

Donwloads are free and you are welcome to share the song with friends who might also like it.

 

 

True Love, aka “Song for a Waitress”

Philip West had this great riff and he wasn’t going to do anything with it. (what do you mean you don’t know Philip, where’ve you been?) so I used it for the verses. I don’t feel the lyrics are my best but I love the melody and that’s enough for me.
