A lament for the planet
Regardless of where anyone stands politically, it’s pretty much impossible to argue that we’re treating the earth very well. Most of us need to become more informed, make better choices as consumers, be more mindful of our food and where it comes from, the amount of waste we produce, etc. At Redtone, we are far from where we need to be, but we are striving to treat the earth better and hope to encourage others to do the same through songs like this one.
This video is for the first single we released, Silver For Your Soul, sung by the amazing Frank Thibeaux, whose vocal performance sounds like he’s summoning Howlin' Wolf from his grave. The song was written in the aftermath of the 2018 California wildfires. The 2019 Amazon fires and the recent fires throughout Australia have kept the song tragically relevant. It’s a lament for the planet, with hope that we will reclaim our roots of living in harmony with the earth, not as its conquerors.
