guruzero Sings for Sandy Hook & Child Safety
Oakland, CA — The controversial debate on gun policy and public safety has reached an unprecedented pitch in the wake of the recent, tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. Earthville’s own Mark Moore, an educator and music producer from Colorado who was moved to tears while watching news coverage of the shootings and their heartbreaking aftermath, decided to channel this pain in a positive direction by writing and recording a song reflecting on the tragedy and the urgent need for reform in US gun laws.
The song, titled “Caskets That Small,” has been released as a free single on the nonprofit record label, Earthville Music. Moore’s band, guruzero, is offering the song for free or for charity in the spirit of sharing and healing.
Trying to Make a Difference in the Aftermath of Sandy Hook
“I’m doing everything I know how to do to make a small difference,” said Moore. “I’m signing the petitions and contacting my government representatives to ask them to support sensible legislation to reduce the number of military-class weapons on the streets. But this crisis of violence in our country is far, far bigger than politics, so I also wanted to do something more personal, to speak from one heart to another. Music is one of the strongest ways to speak directly to the heart, and it’s something I know, so it came very naturally. The song came out in an afternoon. If it makes a human connection with people, that’s all I could wish.”
The “Caskets That Small” single is available for streaming and download at soundcloud.com/guruzero/caskets-that-small (free of charge). For convenience, it is also available now on iTunes, on Amazon.com, and at the Google Play store in some countries (with all proceeds going to charity). Earthville Music says the public is welcome to share the song freely.
