State Of Grace – New release from Natural

I want to share with our readers this open letter from CAVATA artist, Natural, explaining his new single, “State Of Grace.”  I won’t try and summarize the letter.  Instead, read it for yourself, let it sink in and help spread the good word.  

Boston and beyond,

It has been almost six months since the Boston Marathon tragedy. In the period since Patriot’s Day, I have spent a huge amount of time reflecting on and thinking about the state of our wonderful city. From personal connections to the tragedy itself, to the ongoing search for answers during the aftermath, the journey since April has been an arduous one for many.  Although tragedy, loss and sorrow have certainly had their place, hallmarks of community have also been on constant display: Remarkable acts of kindness, generosity, empathy and peace.

It is from witnessing these amazing acts from my community in which I drew inspiration for the song “State Of Grace”.

Natural State Of Grace

The same elements of community that inspired “State Of Grace” are best exemplified in the memory of Martin Richard. Boston’s proud son was a wonderful little boy who was taken from us far too soon. The unforgettable image of Martin holding a sign urging “peace” leaves behind an unbelievably strong message and deep source of inspiration.

“State Of Grace” aims to honor Martin Richard’s memory and to carry forth his philosophy for peace. ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to the Richard Family Fund. (http://richardfamilyfund.org/)

The song is produced by Dorchester’s own, Peter Needham (Stay Puft). His tireless work ethic over the past summer has been nothing short of unbelievable. He has done TONS of charity work in wake of the tragedy. On top of that, he somehow managed to put this amazing track together.  April Stanford also makes an appearance on the song. Her angelic voice exudes peacefulness and hope, a perfect fit for what we were trying to convey.

Additionally, we are planning a benefit show in early November. All proceeds will be tallied up and presented that night, along with proceeds from the ticket sales. We are hoping to raise as much as possible in the next two months. We will be using the hashtags #StateOfGrace and #BostonandBeyond.

We will be placing the song on Itunes on Wednesday, September 11th, 2013. We are asking for your help generating awareness and spreading the word in any way you can. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Your past, present and future support is held in the highest of regards. I felt this was the best way I could give back to a community that has inspired me so much.  Love, blessings and peace from Boston, Massachusetts.

 

Sincerely,

Natural
