What is the name of the song you have on Peace Street?
"Who Will Stop The Nuclear Clock?"
What is the inspiration behind your song? Or, what is the song about?
I was inspired to write the song due to the proliferation of nuclear weapons throughout the world.
How did you write your featured song? Or, can you describe your songwriting process?
My song was inspired by a segment of a TV program in the mid-eighties called The World Tomorrow hosted by Herbert W. Armstrong, who at that time was connected to the Mormons.
Who are your major music influences?
When you wrote this song, did you have a goal in mind? For example, were you trying to raise awareness about an issue that’s close to your heart?
Yes, I wanted the world to realize that nuclear weapons proliferation threatened the very existence of mankind.
How did you get started in music?
I wanted to write songs for my idol-Elvis Presley.
Of all the songs you’ve written, what was the most challenging and why?
"Who Will Stop The Nuclear Clock?" - Originally it was an 8 minute opus because I needed that length of time to cover the subject matter adequately. However. I shortened to just under 3 minutes and made it radio friendly.
How do you think music helps promote world peace and social justice? Music through songs is a form and means of communication. Social justice can be attained by making people cognizant of the very social issues that are part of our lives and impact us on a daily basis. A song in a very personal way is a miniature book, but you can't hum, whistle or sing a book, but you can a song.
What’s coming up in the future?
I am writing a song about climate change.
