New Video for ‘Soldier’s Heart’

posted in: Latest News | 0

I took a little bit of time this week to make a brand new video for my song ‘Soldier’s Heart’. I was debating how to approach it… what footage to use etc. In the end I decided to keep it very simple…

I’m posting it this week as once again we are coming up to Remembrance Day. With 2014 being the centenary of the outbreak of WW1 the media has been covering many aspects of ‘The Great War’, WW2, and other conflicts around the world. It frustrates me when I see how war is glorified and how blatant propaganda is used to manipulate and control the population… throughout history and also now. While I don’t necessarily respect the ‘politics’ of war I do have great respect for those who have served ‘humanity’ (and continue to serve) in whatever capacity (military or otherwise) believing it to be the right thing to do. The mental and physical sacrifice is huge and we can feel the ripple effects in our society every day. I believe it is important that those suffering from PTSD (and their families) get all the love and support they need.

 

Thank-you again to Bill Shanley for his thoughtful and emotive guitar playing.
