L-Fresh The Lion featuring Moza and Mirrah
A powerful song that calls for urgency in addressing climate change.
Why I wrote this song
‘Mother’ comes from a place of frustration and impatience. It comes from seeing how we take this planet we live on for granted. Clean air, clean water – all of that. What we do collectively as a human race has consequences and our planet is the first to experience harm from our actions.
I’ve been sitting on this song for a few years. And over that time, we’ve seen the conversations on climate change continue just as conversations, while the climate is changing – fires, floods, new norms being defined, Pacific nations having to deal with the impact.
In ‘Mother’, I say I’m over the conversation. We need solutions. And we need action.
You wouldn’t be just talking if you saw your mother suffering in front of your eyes. You’d do something to help her out. Our planet gives us life. And it’s suffering.
