"River (for Standing Rock)" coming in March/April 2017!

The Scoop

I wrote a song reflecting on the situation with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and the Dakota Access Pipeline. I am finishing the tracking, mixing, and mastering now, and it is set to be released in March/April of 2017! If all goes as planned, soon thereafter I'll share a B-side cover from the Civil Rights Era these songs are needed again now more than ever. 

The Stories

There's a grievous history of the native peoples in our country that we must face, that we may lament it, and learn to go forward in a new way. Mark Charles, Native American author & activists, paints a picture of that history as it relates to the Christian church, the present political moment, and proposes a pursuit of "racial conciliation." Watch the lecture below. It is worth every minute.

In this lecture "Lamenting the Mythology of a Christian Empire", Native American author and activist Mark Charles unravels the hidden history and moral myths that lie at the heart of the systemic injustice and division persisting in America today - and proposes a way forward. This lecture was given at Saving Justice: Night of Lament, a citywide event hosted by Imago Dei Community and Bridgetown Church, on January 23rd, 2017.
