Nicki Bluhm has shared a new protest song in response to the current political climate in the U.S. The song, entitled “Remember Love Wins”, is available for purchase at www.nickibluhm.com, with all proceeds going to Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Planned Parenthood.
Bluhm says of the song:
“It was Sunday night and I was playing with Phil Lesh down at his music venue Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA. There had been protests all weekend at airports across the country as people were being shut out of a country they know and love. Among all the despair and sorrow we were all feeling, that night at Terrapin felt like a big hug both backstage as we discussed the goings on and also in the Grate Room where we came together as band and audience to experience what we needed most that night….the healing sounds of music,” said Bluhm. “I was touched and even brought to tears by the sounds and sights that occurred that night. There we all were, in that room, together, supporting each other and finding refuge from the craziness happening in our country. It was then I realized that focusing on the solution instead of the problem and approaching it with love and compassion felt a lot better and more human than being angry and spiteful. It was late that night after the show lying in bed, mind reeling, unable to sleep that I wrote this song. Imagine a modern day ‘Kumbaya’ if you will. My hope is that this song will be sung around campfires for years to come, spreading the message to ‘Remember Love Wins.’ Much love to all.”
