“…Well I came upon a man at the top of a hill
Called himself the savior of the human race
Said he come to save the world from destruction and pain
But I said, “How can you save the world from itself?…”
“Through the Valley” by Shawn James
Indie singer/songwriter Shawn James comes to Wolf in a Suit with the mesmerizing and intoxicating musical creation that is “Through the valley”. With this vivid and honest soundscape he invites us to explore a realm made of the purest of human emotions as the picture that takes shape and form is one that is instantly relatable. The lyrics and melodies come together so beautifully, so poetically that there’s no denying that something inside of you is bound to wake up and pay attention. He adds to the sonic experience with the visuals to make the experience whole as all our senses embrace the sweet release that this track offers. There are no lies and self-indulgence as he understands that the biggest enemy of man is man itself yet we always seek to blame someone else. The sentiment rings true today as some people who hide themselves behind the phrase “All lives matter” act blind when it does not benefit them as they forget those with different skin color, religious view, sexual/gender reality, nationality (without a care if they are children or adults) and so much as the list could go on and on. So listen carefully and really look in the mirror and ask, “are we worth saving?” and what must be done to earn that privilege. Enjoy!
