“If you’re looking for hope in these hard times, you need look no further than John Dillon’s stunning EP SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY. From the bitter irony of ‘The F Word’ to to the inspirational uplift of ‘Rise Again,’ John rises to this critical historical moment, redefining ‘patriotism’ in humane, caring terms. ‘A Perfect Storm,’ with its insistent chorus ‘Save Our Democracy/Vote November 3rd,’ is the perfect antidote to hopelessness and inertia. Listen with your heart and soul, then go to work alongside John to save our democracy––for now and for the future. We are called; we must do no less.”  Si Kahn – Singer, Songwriter, Organizer, Vietnam Era U.S. Army Reservist – 1965-1971

Track 1A PERFECT STORM (3:49) Written after the George Floyd murder, the opening track highlights how the trifecta of the Covid-19 pandemic, systemic racism and government corruption has motivated people of all ages and races to take to the streets and make their voices heard. Features the Virtual Choir of Resistance: Vivian Nesbitt, Dan Navarro, Tret Fure, Joe Jencks, Cathy Fink, Daniel Boling, Jono Manson, Steve Gillette, Cindy Mangsen, Don Richmond, Jon Gold, Tom Naunas, Jackson Dillon, Jessica Dillon, Sidney Dillon-King, Tony Glaser, Katie Anne Mitchell, Catherine Reid, Annie & Rod Capps. RADIO FRIENDLY FOR VOTER TURNOUT

Track 2 – THE F WORD (3:31) is a dire warning of how far we’ve come and what we must do to save our democracy. The song was inspired in part by Madeleine Albright’s bestselling book, Fascism: A Warning. LEFT LEANING

Track 3SOUL OF OUR NATION (2:32) Is a song of hope. The song concludes with actual words from Joe Biden’s acceptance speech at the DNC. (Not officially endorsed by the Biden-Harris campaign… yet!) VERY LEFT LEANING

Track 4 – RISE AGAIN (3:04) is a lament for unity and human connection… a prayer for healing and an affirmation of the resiliency of our country. SLIGHTLY LEFT LEANING

Track 5 – SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY (0:24) is a short PSA length piece featuring the Virtual Choir of Resistance, a chorus of folk music luminaries assembled digitally from across the country. “Vote with our feet. Vote with our words. Save our democracy. Vote November Third.” RADIO FRIENDLY MUSICAL MESSAGE TO GET OUT THE VOTE

All instruments, vocals, recording & mixing by John Dillon (except: Organ – Tom Naunas; Drums – Patrick Turnmire; Backing Vocals – Vivian Nesbitt)
