Balm for the soul

People Rise Up

People rise up people come together
We never give up we never surrender
To the forces that would keep us down
Our hearts are found
We’re mother bound

Keep on keep on lovers we’ve got what it takes
To shake off the shame and stay awake
Feel the feels and heal the deal
Take it all the way
Stay real

People rise up people come together
One foot in front of the other
Walk on walk on our hearts can crush this
Stand for peace
Work for justice

Keep a weary eye on the powers that be
Keep taking back our democracy
Keep your eyes up keep your mind sharp
The light in our eyes moving
Through the dark

From the album

“This music not only swings, rocks, and grooves–it matters. It’s the voice of a real community, with a sound and a message the world needs to hear.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

Elizabeth Wolff
Cultural Healing Facilitator

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”
