“One morning, I woke up and decided that I was not going to let my despair continue to drown out my voice,”May Erlewine says. “I sat down and wrote a letter to the 45th president and at that moment committed to using my voice throughout his time in office. The wounds of his words and actions would not go unnoticed in my life, in my heart, and in my music.”
May Erlewine did exactly that. She used her music to spread her message of peace, love and understanding. Her song “That’s My Home” is a political protest song in the form of a singer-songwriter pop ballad. With a catchy hook, the singer-songwriter delivers her lyrics in the form of a letter to the 45th President. Driven by the current state of the country and the grief of herself and others, the vibe of the song feels like a breakup song in which she is taking her power back. She is pleading with the administration, to be more human, to consider all. The guitar solo adds even more flavor to the music. Regardless of the lyrical content, this song is strong enough musically and vocally. The lyrics add to an already great song.
May Erlewine’s music is no stranger to current events. You will find several protest songs and calls for peace through her music. Here at Rock the Pigeon, we definitely have strong admiration for those who use their music to spread a positive message and a message of love.
