Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2012
Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. This year is observing the 130th anniversary of its origin, when in 1882 Matthew Maguire, a machinist and secretary of the New York Central Labor Union (CLU) first proposed the Federal holiday.
“ I think it’s important to understand the civil significance of the labor movement in todays society. I know the public is struggling to find work and I’m just singing about people being able to support their families. I hope the movement will last well into the next 130 years,” says Cooke.
Sincere, ambitious and sometimes angry, he addresses the concerns of the working man, while proposing an overhaul of American family values.
To quote the Rolling Stones and Peter Frampton producer, Chris Kimsey, “This is a powerful political mass and middle/poor class identity anthem. It is raw and back to the roots, the thing that is resilient and soulful is the lyric, the song and the singer ”.
Produced and written by Steve Cooke, the song has a strong 12-string guitar influence with notes of pedal steel intertwining with the soaring Rock guitar riffs. The huge crescendos and emotional Goose bumps are likened to a blend of John Cougar Mellencamp, Keith Urban and Bon Jovi. Like the gifted storytellers before him, he will be blazing a wide and long trail upon the countries musical landscape.
It’s been a long wait for the backbone of America to hear an underlining message of unified faith and hope in a song. Cooke has successfully used this medium to pay tribute to the creators of so much of the nation's strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.
