Brother Dear Project: STORIES OF WAR
I'm finally letting the cat out of the bag as I introduce to you plans in the works for my next and first full length feature album, 'Brother Dear'. Brother Dear is a collection of songs written over the last 15 years which bring light to various perspectives and voices of war.
Each song will be accompanied by a music video, so the entire album will be accompanied by a video album slash narrative. (Think Jesus Christ Superstar or Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation). It's an ambitious project that has been brewing since 2000, so I'm excited to announce that I'm in the planning stages of the 'film' synopsis which is set in 2015 and the magnificent era of World War II. The overall intention of the project, from album to stage, is to use this multi-media platform to bring awareness to the war and conflicts happening around the world today, 75 years after the end of the War.
To give you a taste, this is a spec video I created for one of the tunes, 'No One Without You'. It's one of the first song's I wrote specifically for this project - it's about two people in love, separated by war, and the connection they share, in life and in death.
