Shine Lyrics I know there’s a way to love and rise above the things we’ve done I know we can drop the weight of fear and hate and change our fate. Cuz there’s a light inside your eyes Same as mine And over time We will find a way to shine beyond the color line. I know there’s a way to hope untie the rope that’s tied to choke I know we can lift the weight Set things straight it’s not too late There’s a wound that will not mend A hurt that’s deep and without end We must face the facts my friends And learn to make amends Bridge: Shine like Hendrix, and Marvin Gaye, Cornell West and MLK, Angela Davis and Beyonce, Tamika Mallory and John Coltrane. I know we can lift this up out of despair and breathe new air I know we can’t ignore what’s come before not anymore I know there’s a light inside your eyes Same as mine and we will find a way to shine.

Lyrics

Reach Out
Jason Brock

On the pavement
In the dirt
Bruised and bleeding but never hurt
I know why you put us down
I think it's time to take a look around

Because the time has come to change
A new direction a different way
We can make it if we try
If we stand up we won't be denied

Reach out
Reach out to one another
Reach out to our friends
Reach out

In the cities and in the towns
In the country and all around
A new generation a new way of life
So put down your weapons and face the light

We gotta reach out

Help me baby
I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please

Reach out to one another

Jason Brock, There's more than one reason to wear a mask, May 2020

A song I wrote and sang under my pseudonym Spinningmerkaba is approaching 100K streams on Spotify.  Kind of Girl is a vocal recording released under Creative Commons license and was remixed by Tiny Toon a few years back.  This is what I love about sharing music...Kind of Girl has gone viral.

It's a strange time to rekindle my music career, but this was one nice surprise that indicates that I've got listeners out there, and my job is to keep making good music and connecting with you.  I hope you are healthy supported and creative during COVID-19.  Keep listening to and discovering new music.

Thanks for you support!

I'm starting this blog to archive a new chapter in my music.  I've decided to record a new solo album with songs I've been writing over the last several years while pursuing other interests of mine.  I'll fill in the details along the way.

Right now, I'm building a new DAW.  Soon I'll be recording and documenting the process.  I'll be feeding my social network with content so be sure to follow my links on your favorite platforms.  I want your feedback, comments, and suggestions.  I'll do my best to respond and connect.
