Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.
We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.
No justice, no peace.
I have always believed myself to be sensitive to race issues and how things are for minorities in this country, while acknowledging and working on my own faults, but Ferguson has really been a wake up call. I’m so heartbroken this is still happening (and happened in the first place). It seemed to be getting better last week.
Christy is a beautiful soul, with a voice to match. She published this song (below) on Soundcloud today, from her forthcoming EP, O Montana, and I really love it. The accordion is a perfect pairing to the drum beat and her clever lyrics. She reminds me of a mix between Lucinda Williams and Brandi Carlile here.
If you can catch her on tour, you can get your own copy of her EP, or wait until its official release in the fall. Either way, you’ll want to get your hands on this music.
