US singer/songwriter Aaron English have released a new song and video, ‘Coming of Age in Hard Times’.
“I’m sitting here in Seattle as ash & smoke from wildfires fills the city: the American West’s massive summer wildfire season rages on. As I sit, I’m reading about Hurricanes Irma & Harvey, the escalating North Korea & Burma crises, the plight of the American immigrant ‘Dreamers’…& I am reminded of the old saying (purported to be an ancient Chinese curse): “May you live in interesting times”.
With all that in mind, it is an appropriate context in which to release my new song & video: “Coming of Age in Hard Times”. The song was recorded in Italy during one my European tours earlier this year, and is meant to be a rallying cry for those who, amidst our present challenges, are ready to roll up their sleeves & get to work in building a safer, more just world for us all.”
