‘NATO Blues’ is the first release from One Earth Music, a collection of renegade artists who write about the major issues of our day.
As our readers know, VT supports musical artists and leaders that reach out and extend themselves out past the normal commercial pop culture. One Earth Music is a label that is reaching out to make humanitarian and political statements through music. So give your support.
In fact, because music and art reflect the cultural condition, One Earth Music strives to right the course of the degraded musical path that has contributed to the collapse of culture and society throughout the West.
NATO BLUES features youthful performers Maxx Henry (age 13) on drums and vocals – third verse and Nick Brodeur (age 16) on vocals – first verse. It also features Frank Devito, who played for many years with Frank Sinatra, on additional percussion.
One Earth Music have since released four additional tracks – ‘Ecuador’, ‘Refugee’, ‘Walls’ and ‘Animals’.
These can be viewed at the below links or on their YouTube channel at ONE EARTH MUSIC

Oh one more note: The Saker, an infamous political writer well known to VT readers, plays the guitar solo on our ‘Refugee’ track beginning at 1:32. It’s a very beautiful contribution.
The vocalist on that track is Byron Bordeaux who fronts the Band of Gypsies, a tribute band to Jimi Hendrix with original drummer Buddy Miles and Billy Cox.
Ironically, One Earth Music didn’t have him play guitar (he plays Hendrix note for note) and they are grateful as his focus went into his brilliant vocal parts.
