Violence

about

I originally wrote this song for Trayvon Martin more than a year ago, it's part of my new vocal record, Weatherbeaten Soul. I hadn't planned on releasing anything until the vinyl is pressed early next year, but in light of all the protests going on it seems necessary to post it now. I wrote it for Trayvon, but it's really for so many people, including Michael Brown, Kajeme Powell, Tamir Nelson, Eric Garner, and so many more souls we are losing to a cycle of violence daily. May we organize ourselves and find a better way through the world.
