Tough subject to chew on. Does poshbeat poetry speak to the living and rumble the boards of the powerful? Pretty notes for ugly subjects. #whatwouldjohanjohnsondo

About the Album

"An Afterlife for Jeffrey Miller" is the 2nd track from the Liberation Music Collective's new album Rebel Portraiture. It pays tribute to Miller, one of the four students killed while protesting the Vietnam War at Kent State University in 1970. As author and GRAMMY®-winning producer Kabir Sehgal states in his informative liner notes, "These tracks are tasteful and elegant portraits of those who defied fear and spoke truth to power. Now their stories become 'music to power.'"
