Casey McPherson, vocalist for prog rock supergroups Flying Colors and The Sea Within, recently released the new Alpha Rev album entitled ‘Alpha Rev presents Cas.e Sessions, Volume 1.’ Now he is pleased to present the video for the track “You Are The Peacemakers” from the collection.
You can see the video for “You Are The Peacemakers” here:
The song’s lyrics taken from the blog of child activist Hallie Geier, who passed away at the age of 11 in 2004. Hallie left behind more than 1,000 essays, poems, and stories, which became the inspiration for the “You Are The Peacemakers.” The song, originally written for the United Nation’s National Peace Day, has now been chosen as the official song of the Mindful Kids Peace Summit The online, international Mindful Kids Peace Summit was created by a teen, Adam, for other teens, to be shown in schools across the world as part of the annual curriculum. It focuses on mental health & stopping violence. More information on the Mindful Kids Peace Summit can be found here: https://www.mindfulkidspeacesummit.com/
Casey had this to say about the track: “Hallie’s story, and everyone at the Love, Hallie Foundation is so inspirational to me, it just goes to show that age doesn’t matter when it comes to making the world a better place. I’m also very honored to have this song chosen for the Mindful Kids Peace Summit. What Adam is doing is groundbreaking!”
After recording and performing with bands for most of his career, Casey McPherson wanted to do something outside the box, a more in-depth artistic look into life for him… so, he started a music and video experience called the Cas.e Sessions. The Cas.e Sessions explores creating songs around a relevant topic or experience and documents the whole process. Every month, the members of the Cas.e Sessions get a new song, a short documentary around the song, and an online live show, which has allowed McPherson to make a record completely independent, fully funded by the members.
“I didn’t intend to release the Cas.e Sessions Volume 1 to the general public, just to the Cas.e Sessions members, mostly because I recorded each song in a day and wasn’t thinking about how it would be received. Maybe that was a good thing? Looking back, I’m very proud of the journey it takes you on!”
