simon baum is a london based singer/songwriter. his latest featured song is called 'bridges'. it's a beautifully restrained folk song, with subtle guitar and e-piano, that hides an eloquent social message beneath it's calm surface.
the refrain of 'one day we'll build bridges over walls, until that day, let's be bridges, cause they can't stop us all' sounds like heartfelt , human statement against the rampant xenophobia and bigotry that seems to be behind so many of today's unfortunately successful political movements. that's a sentiment i can get behind.
