One month from today, March 18th, 2016, will see the official release of, "Visions of Us on the Land". The third and final chapter, for what I have called, "Maraqopa". Below is something I initially wrote for the album's, bio/ one sheet, that I initially thought, could be used, by the music press. In what way, I wasn't entirely sure. ..seeing how, there was little, to no mention, about my music, or the album itself. Today, I am sharing it here. ____________________________________________________ I don't plan much. At most, ambition is little. Waiting for any, and, all things, to just arrive in their own time. More venturing out, to places in my mind, than to any destination set before me in books, and, colorful posters, that hang on the walls, and, in the windows, of travel agencies. From a young age, any band I heard on the radio, with a top ten hit, could not compare to the bands I conjured up in my mind. From a living room couch, or, dining room table, in anywhere, America, I could broadcast to another person, on the other side of the world, a new song, by just thinking about it. No tours. No television appearances. No clue, as to what the band he or she was hearing, even looked like ..nor did it matter. We knew all of the songs by heart. Many of which, were kept on file, deep within our minds. We'd play the rhythms on the chattering of our teeth. It was loud, as equally, as it was silent. It became the soundtrack to anywhere we'd walk. Played as an extended loop, on long car rides. More than music, it would soon become the place I could hide, or retreat to, when things got too much. We could not only control the volume, but, how the land felt beneath our feet. Our own vehicle of choice, and destination. Setting our eyes on the land, and, tilting the horizon, by moving our heads. Squinting our eyes, just enough, to adjust the contrast, and, colors, of our own personal sky. Rain in our hands, or the sun in our mind. Visions of us on the land. Gathered and stolen by storm. Echo, echo, all are in. _________________________________________________ photo - richard swift / drums / national freedom / may 2015
