New song & video, "Boring World"

I'm excited to share a new video for my song "Boring World". You can watch the video here: http://bit.ly/2ShioFb

This song came out of a conversation I had with my dad after I returned from a summer of traveling and spending time in the Anishinaabe community of Manitoulin Island. In my mind, I was fighting to prove that the diverse knowledge we often dismiss from "less dominant" cultures is just as valid as what we've learned from European culture. That's a lot to tackle in a 3 minute song! I think I just scratched the surface and it can be interpreted in different ways. Regardless, there's an idealistic world-weariness to the lyrics, and I thought it would be really cutting if it was conveyed from the perspective of kids. I teach music part-time, and I asked 5 of my students to star in the video. We did the whole thing in a few hours in an empty school and had a blast. I hope the song and video connect with you in some way, and if you're inspired, please share it with your family and friends!
