GRIEF – A New Album by Samora Pinderhughes
An album about the present state of the country and my feelings about it, in the tradition of the 60s-era protest albums.
The recording of this music as a new project is going to be very special to me. This new music represents my explorations of the times we are in right now, all the elements of it, as well as speaking about my experiences and the experiences of those around me. I believe fiercely in music right now; in the urgency of this moment, to speak out as an artist. This album will be recorded in the tradition of the 1960s albums, written by inspirations of mine such as Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, and Curtis Mayfield – albums that, if you listened to them through, gave you a full picture of the times they were in and a window into the many lives of people being affected and oppressed by various systems.
