Nice song. Great message. Superb artwork.
"Freedom Always Lies" is the breakout debut single from Redwood Prophets, released on January 20, 2017, U.S. Presidential Inauguration day. The timing of the release is no accident. Recorded on July 4, 2016, U.S. Independence Day, the song celebrates freedom from discrimination and freedom from tryannical hegemony. The amazing cover image for the single is a painting by Santa Barbara artist Sue Van Horsen titled "Obama Tried." Sue - you nailed it! As Obama said, "Yes we DID." :-)
