The Australian acoustic-folk creator Justin Franks released the single Heart Wants on the 10th.
Perhaps it is just coincidence, or may be not, that I often find with musicians who have spent years with an itinerant lifestyle, their music has a calming touch, tonality along with a reach that extends around the world.
Franks, who spent decades out at sea, now docked to a harbour, has created in Heart Wants a song that immediately minds, longer stay readers on the site will also spot, of the music by the Swedish musician Steffan Rundquist.
I get the feeling the world would be a calmer place if more people pulled up their roots for a while and discovered that borders between countries are just lines on a map and they don’t need to divide people.
The most recent track to surface – Chained – reflects on a world in which many become aligned to a way of life for the simple reason that it is what they know and never taking time to challenge themselves to discover if there is perhaps a more fulfilling life readily accessible.
