Australian based Rock Singer-songwriter, Rhett May, is tackling his home country’s (and the rest of the world’s) Ice Epidemic head on, with the release of his visually haunting and dark (but true) new music video: “The Violence Of Ice.” Rhett May uses his influential platform as a musician to spread a much needed message over beautifully placed guitar riffs, amazing vocals and stellar songwriting.

Largely influenced by the classic songwriting of John Lennon, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, Rhett May is a rock singer who has molded his own unique sound over several decades in the industry. His self-produced rock music is simple and raw with plenty to say about May’s take on the modern world. It is this all inclusive method that spawned the motivational and much needed new music video.
With a musical career that spans back to the seventies when his band Lucifer supported legendary rock band Queen, Rhett May is a voice of experience in a rock world which has become increasingly shallow. He has toured the world, seen the music industry from the inside and watched the dark side of the business consume those around him. Throughout those experiences Rhett May continually turned away the excesses of the industry, choosing instead to write his own story as opposed to those who fell into the clutches of addiction.
Having spent a large part of his childhood in Calcutta, India, his guitar led songs are infused with the sounds of the Indian streets, giving his music a different flavor from the majority of current cookie cutter rock music. By blending classic sensibilities with a twist of Indian culture he has created a string of upcoming singles, the first of which will be ‘The Violence of Ice’ to be released on October 2 off his new “Fast Cars & Sitars” album which will street on October 30.
With the release of this music video, Rhett wholeheartedly tackles the issue of the Ice Epidemic head on and makes sure that the video leaves you questioning yourself and your stance on drugs. It shows the dangers that come with the consumption and abuse of Ice and how it wrecks families, relationships and ultimately pulls apart the seams of a stable society. It is exceedingly rare to have a Rock Singer who has such a strong stance on the use of drugs, and that is exactly the point Rhett aims to make; that change is a necessity.
