New Zealand singer-songwriter Brian Baker celebrates the release of his latest single, “OUR FREEDOM”, produced and recorded at his Kaipara-based studio facility. Brian performs at the Okura Forest Festival on 18th Feb - the day after this track is released.
“Our Freedom” is a song inspired by the right to protest. It sees a woman at a protest, then in court and finally in a supermarket, where she is free to choose.
“The word “Freedom” seems to be being used a lot these days and for those of us lucky enough to live in a democracy, we have the right to protest and to vote”, says Brian. “It’s my opinion that we have always been and always are, at some level, free. This song not only observes and highlights that but also offers a solution to those who would question our freedom. That solution is the power of the consumer’s dollar. If enough of the buying public don’t purchase a product then whatever corporation or business that supplies it will find it non profitable and cease to create it. The true power is not in the hands of the corporations but resides with the consumer. The individual influences the collective.”
All done to a rock beat and some slashing guitars…..it rocks.
