I’m having a hard time writing this feature, fighting the tears of pain. ‘Cause being a Dad of a nine year old son, who got extremely bullied mentally and physically at school this year, this new single of Nelly Joy and Jason Reeves struck more than one chord with me.
There are no words to describe the heartache, the pain, to see your son losing his self-esteem little by little every day this past school year, coming home fighting his own tears of what happened that particular day.
And yet, he still managed to pass his grade this year, leaving me with a mixed feeling of horrible pain and extreme proudness!
When is this gonna stop? When are we gonna stand up and say enough is enough? When are we gonna teach each other to respect one another again? When are we gonna accept one another, including ones flaws. ‘Cause God knows, everybody has them!..
So, I could promote this like I usually do, being this wacky Dutch independent music promoter. But today I like to ask you, as a Dad, to take a few minutes out of your life, listen and take the necessary first step to help stop this rapidly spreading epidemic of bullying in your own area!
And last but not least, Nelly and Jason. On behalf of my son, thank you for bringing a sparkle of hope & joy by dropping this catchy jam, and create awareness for bullying. I’ll be honest, I’ve got tears rolling down my cheek right now, but it’s out of gratitude… You Rule!..
I’m getting more & more submissions on a daily basis, and don’t get me wrong, it’s FANTASTIC! (You indie artists better keep sending me your stuffs!) But I’m having a hard time to do things the way I’ve always done, one artist at the time. So, it’s time to evolve.
Let me turn up your speakers or head-cans with these multiple kick-ass indie jams I got sent to me or discovered personally, in Turn It Up Tuesday!
Hop on board and ride along on this brother’s highly contagious groovy train, making falling desperately in love cool again!..
Mondays, it’s that sh*tty first day of the week and boy, can it be challenging! So let me spark some fire between your ears with the kick-ass indie jams I believe, will kickstart your week. This is Manic Music Monday!
Fun, happy, feel-good pop-rock, that has every potential to dip into mainstream, fast!..
