“Won’t you help me sing – these songs of freedom – are all I ever have – redemption songs”
I’ve never been more excited about one of my songs being played on the radio before. I believe that songs can accomplish remarkable things and that’s why I keep writing and recording after 18 years of making music.
I want to sing songs of freedom in the this war scorched land where the kingdom is under siege – where the shadow holds temporary sway. Commodity is a song that belongs to anyone that’s been oppressed, taken advantage of or diminished. This song is a captive’s dream of liberty, of a modern underground railroad, of a highway home from our exile. The King’s kingdom is a kingdom where the oppressed can find refuge, where the marginalized can find hope, where the child soldier can find safety, where the trafficked daughter in the red light district returns to her innocence as a princess of the realm. I believe in freedom and in the power of a King that can repair this damaged territory and restore these exiled prisoners to royalty. This song is a petition to the King of Kings to untie these chains that hold captive the most vulnerable among us – and at the same time a prayer for my own soul to be set free.
