About this project
I write protest songs that you can pump your fist or shake your ass to. The Occupy Wall Street movement has awakened me as an artist in ways I have not felt in years. I am full of ideas for music and my band, and I have even found 6 skilled musicians to aid me in my vision. We are ready to record, but I do not want to pursue the normal record label route of production. I can handle every aspect of this project: sound engineering, promotion, booking, vocals, various instruments. The record will be done by Xmas, and all I need to fulfill my dreams of writing some dirty rock songs with proactive progressive political messages is to get start up money to buy equipment for an in-house recording studio. I want to shock people into action.
If you take a look at my biography, you can get an idea of my background and where I am coming from. I have grown up working class and poor, with some rather troubling mommy and daddy issues. Since I don't have the money for a therapist, I'm going to work out my problems through art and music.
Others have more brilliantly summed up what I am most angry at regarding politics, and what motivates me.
Soon, we will have a web site up so that our fans have a place to post questions and suggestions, and also get our feedback. We will also be video taping the creation process once it gets under way.
