I'm excited to share that one of my little ukulele ditties, "The Bout of Bass and Ukulele," is featured in the documentary trailer for Food Patriots! You can hear the song starting at 0:18. Of course, it's awesome to hear my song in a professional trailer like this... but it's even awesomer to hear it in a documentary that deals with a passion of mine: food.
As a long-time vegetarian, I've contemplated many of the issues brought up in this movie. This fueled me to write many songs about vegetarianism (95 Lives, Pig Roast), consumerism (Consumer Whore), and the environment (Extinct).
Thank you to John Farbrother (Green River Films) for licensing my song for this trailer. It's thrilling to have a teeny, tiny part in the film. I'm very excited to see Food Patriots and hope it opens minds and inspires change.
