RUSSELL TAYLOR Perform His Latest Single, WAKE UP At The iHeart Radio Dunkin Latte Lounge
WAKE UP, is a call to action for Black, Indigenous, People of Color and their Allies, and is written and produced by Russell Taylor, and co-written by the artist CROWN for IndigoBlue Music. The short music-film was directed by Dominga Martin on location in Boston in August 2020 and was created in conjunction with The Poor People’s Campaign voter outreach effort, “We Must Do MORE: Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering, Educating People for a Movement that Votes.” WAKE UP is available on all streaming and download platforms now.
“The precise role of the artist, then, is to illuminate that darkness, blaze roads through that vast forest, so that we will not, in all our doing, lose sight of its purpose, which is, after all, to make the world a more human dwelling place.” James Baldwin.
Russell shares, “creating this project was a beautiful partnership that showcases the power of art to sound the alarm. Sickness, social injustice, poverty and violence ebb and flow like the waves of our polluted oceans. It is time for us to Wake Up and take action —first, we must mobilize the BIPOC and Ally vote for a government that actually represents her people.”
