Hiss Golden Messenger has released the soulful new track “Sanctuary” with an accompanying video. The song was written and produced by bandleader/songwriter M.C. Taylor.
The KidEthnic-directed music video features Taylor singing of reconciliation and hope, alongside some beautiful young faces – watch below…
Taylor states: “Over the past year, I’ve been thinking a lot about how we care for ourselves and each other, and how hard it is to live truthfully in a world that is so tangled. ‘We sell the world to buy fire, our way lighted by burning men,’ says the poet Wendell Berry. The song ‘Sanctuary’ is one small piece of my own personal reckoning with what it feels like to search for some kind of shelter in the storm. Fare thee well, John Prine, AKA Handsome Johnny, a speaker of truth if ever there was one.”
Hiss Golden Messenger recently received their first Grammy® nomination for the 2019 album Terms of Surrender, which is up for Best Americana Album.
