Here's the story behind "Beyond the Border"... This song was originally recorded in a very uptempo, electronic rock arrangement. When rehearsing for a show at Carnegie Hall a few months ago, my friend and keyboardist, Akie Bermiss (Lake Street Dive) and I started messing around with this stripped down arrangement. It worked as a solemn ballad, and really emphasized the story I was telling. And it ended up being the highlight of the show. It struck people in the audience that night. And I liked it so much we performed it live at Paste the following day. Since then, I’ve wondered what to do with it. “Beyond the Border” is a song about an undocumented Latino immigrant who has twice been displaced. Once from Central America, and once again when ripped from their loved ones who they must leave behind in the United States. And that is the case with the subjects of the photos you see in the video (thanks to some amazing and brave photojournalists). The first half of the video features the early wave of European immigrants to America, who, like their modern counterparts, were also fleeing persecution and despair. With the recent stories coming from the border, and the ongoing humanitarian crises in Myanmar, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and South Sudan (to name a few), I wanted to put the music to picture, and juxtapose the reactions when dealing with Europeans and people from below the Tropic of Cancer. As a dad, I can only imagine what I would do if I was raising a child in the midst of war, persecution and famine. Or making the very brave journey across an inhospitable ocean or desert with them in search of asylum or opportunity. Or finally reaching our destination only to be ripped apart. If I can open people up to a better understanding of other people and cultures, and see them not as an issue, or a statistic, but as human beings who want to live in peace, work hard and raise their children, then I will have done a good job.

#tbt Trinidad, age 10 maybe, getting a traditional Tamil gingelly oil (sesame) bath with my brother and Uncle. Trinidad is an amazing country. Haven't been back since I was a kid, but definitely want to go again. Not shown is the gingelly oil mouth rinse, which is gnarly and I do not recommend for the uninitiated.
