About the Song “Love Letter To Democracy”
Sometimes the right song comes along at the right time. On the day and season of the inauguration, we celebrate the new administration. Sean Magee, the Grammy-winning engineer for re-mastering The Beatles, mastered the single and compared the song to John Lennon.
About the Video “Love Letter to Democracy”
Directed by Etzioni, we see the artist at the piano, shot from above, through glass that partially hides him. The video’s focus is a model of the Statue of Liberty, against a harsh gray background, with torch aflame. The sun begins to rise as the song concludes, “She is standing tall, mighty tall, for democracy.”
