Three Secret Road artists have been featured on the 30 Days, 30 Songs compilation mix, which is a project based around anti-Trump songs. The compilation came about through an independent website that will release one song per day from October 10th until November 8th (Election Day). It is produced by the creators of 90 Days, 90 Reasons , which sought to motivate voters to give President Obama a second term, and it features work from artists across the country.
From the site: "As artists, we are united in our desire to speak out against the ignorant, divisive, and hateful campaign of Donald Trump. We will not be duped by Mr. Trump’s rhetorical contortions, by his pandering and lies and false promises. He has shown the content of his character time and time again, and the very fact of his candidacy is a blight on the nation. His words incite hatred and celebrate inequity. Most troubling of all, over the past year, the country has become inured to the towering vileness of his rhetoric and deeds, his attacks on women, Mexican-Americans, Muslims, and those with disabilities. But we have to remember these acts, and act against them. In the words of Cornell West, we cannot become "well-adjusted to injustice.”” More information can be found here.
