about

Myself and songwriter Josh Pratt (with Lorne Clarke chipping in with the brilliant final touch) decided, back in 2008, to do our bit to shed light on the travesty of justice known as “The West Memphis Three”. Three innocent men were eventually freed, after 18 years in prison. One of them, Damien Echols, was on death row. The state of Arkansas was ready, willing, and able to kill him for a crime they knew he did not commit.

While what we did didn’t amount to much….it did add to the chorus of voices shouting for justice. And for that, we are both immensely proud. We didn’t just sit back and take it, and we didn’t say “there’s nothing we can do about it”. There’s always something any of us can do.

You can listen to the songs by clicking the links above. Thanks Josh for taking my call….listening…..being skeptical…..doing the research…and then doing what I knew you’d do all along. I needed you on this. Sometimes it sucks to be alone.
