Artist: Jim Wellman
Location: East Sussex, England
Styles: Jazz, Funk, Disco, Acid Jazz, Soul
Album Release: Dawn To Dusk : Feb 2016
The album is social commentary, but viewed through perspectives of human psychological evolution, and analysis of mass communication and propaganda. The core of the work is the understanding that Man lives in a world of amazing technological development, but is still encumbered with medieval forms of government by representatives who serve mainly the interests of the elite. Jim uses the mechanisms of human evolution to show how this is wrong for humanity, and instead advocates new forms of direct democracy and openness through an uncensored internet.
When I read about the background of Jim Wellman’s album, I wanted to hear more on his inspiration and thoughts on why and how he came up with the Album “Dawn to Dusk”. He shared very interesting details in this interview and spoke about why it’s important for everyone, particularly celebrity to speak up and voice opinions on social or political topics, and step up as a citizen. Also we spoke about the need for change and reforms to include the people in the decision making process of the system, as opposed to only during the election time.
I found the usage of dialogues in his songs different and interesting. I love the beats in the song “Let the People Rule Ya” and found it very catchy. “Happy song” is one of my favorite in his collection, featured at the end of this video, a song which is a plea for popular celebrity to express opinions. Do check out his upcoming release of the Album “Dawn To Dusk”.
