Peter Walker - Eulogies
Is this election different than past elections, why or why not?
| Peter Walker |
I think there's more on the line now than ever before. It's the same old story but with greater numbers: Our impact on the climate, our dependence on oil, war, our healthcare system, our economy. We've heard it all before but right now we're in some very dark days at home and abroad.
What is the relationship between music and politics - and how, if at all, has this relationship affected your music?
Music is an outlet, a voice. Even if personally I'm not singing about tearing down political walls, I'm singing about things that often don't get talked about – like emotional walls. Things you'll never get into by watching the news, or by following politics. Those are some of the most threatening walls to me.
If you could speak directly to all American voters, what would you say?
Vote for your values, not for your money.
