Jay “Blue Jay” Jourdan - 'World Freedom Song'
Review Written by Victoria Scott & Staff
Music can influence, and even change, people, movements, and society. Sharing songs about peace and social justice, ultimately reminds the world of the importance of fairness, love and unity. Jay "Blue Jay "Jourdan's song, "World Freedom Song", is one of the amazing songs that will be featured on World National Indie Radio's (WNIR) 'Songs For Change' radio special during the month of November.
An illuminating song about love and light is here with Jay “Blue Jay” Jourdan’s song “World Freedom Song” from the album Together We Are One. The song starts with Jay "Blue Jay" speaking to the audience about the hopes of humanity for peace and unity. An ethereal ambient stereo effect in a light guitar commence the song as warm and wistful vocals calmly sing the melody as the percussion set the tempo. The style is laid back with a folk-rock vibe as a modern message about the world’s need for peace is delivered.
The arrangement starts with a mellow melody line and slowly progresses into the chorus with a soft shaker, groovy bongo, and steady clapper. The performances by Gerardo Velez, Kristan Capolino, Benny Harrison, Bruce Gatewood, Muddy Schews, and Tony Beard is uplifting and transcending. The song showcases a complex and inventive arrangement of syncopated folk rhythms and calm, soothing vocals.
“World Freedom Song” is about uniting through these trying times. We are struggling through these dark times, and we need help to rise above division, poverty, and disease. The song is a message for the world to unite and find a way to heal and prosper in peace. The time is here and together is how the world can be saved.
“Love and light, I know we’ll find away, Mystic journey clean water and clean air, The children have enough to eat and love from those who care, The sun, moon, and stars they all shine the same.”
Jay “Blue Jay” Jourdan is a phenomenal songwriter and producer. “World Freedom Song” is moving and powerful with an inner peace and confidence in message that resonates. The song has an understated energy that flows through us, encouraging everyone to think and act as one with a message about world unity without politics or creed, just love for humanity.
The year 2020 needs peace and Jay “Blue Jay” Jourdan has created a beautiful and soulful song that leads the way. "Together we are strong, united in our song."
