XuluProphet, celebrates the release of their single, “Land of the Thief, Home of the Slave” on international record label, Boom One Records. From the start they’ve been entertaining local crowds, the band has recently opened for national act, Passafire, and international legend The Wailers. This international recording opportunity is the latest in a string of successes.

13 Bricks Design and Printing is pleased to unveil their new facility on Waters Avenue in downtown Savannah. Owners Vann-Ellison Seales, a Savannah native, Alfredo Martinez , and Shannee Theus plan to use additional space to optimize and streamline existing production capabilities and prepare for future projects.


 

Together, these long term collaborators are inviting friends and fans to join the celebration and to raise funds and awareness for Deep Center and the young authors project.

Deep provides rigorous writing workshops to middle school students in Chatham County. Writers from the community work with the students so that they can better tell their personal stories. The result is a published book at the end of each semester. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will benefit Deep Center.

 


Land of The Slave EP.

Album Art by ALFREDO MARTINEZ

Penned by Daly after a road trip across the Deep South from Savannah Georgia to New Orleans Louisiana, this song is a provocative take on systemic racism in American history and the current political climate against the backdrop of The Trump election/administration, Black Lives Matter, police brutality and the rise of hate groups across the country.

Murder Creek Alabama (the site of a mass murder in 1788) and the Suicide Oak in City Park New Orleans (where it is said 16 men hung themselves in 12 years) prompted the song, and in the week where Donald Trump won his first Super Tuesday and Savannah native Josh Taft had been arrested for protesting a KKK rally in Stone Mountain, Atlanta GA, the song came naturally, as the realization of the bloodshed and tragedy surrounding the foundation of this nation came to light.

Initially The Land of The Brave and the Home of the Free, the slick twist to The Land of the Slave and the Home of the Thief was an instantaneous addition from Xulu upon reading the lyrics for the first time. The artwork also came from a vision of Daly through the hands of Alfredo Martinez, who took the concept of Lady Liberty crucified on a burning cross and brought it into reality, using a motif from a Salvador Dali painting.

The EP is rounded out by 2 remixes from Daly’s electronic alias’s. First a Dub done in the classic style by Dub moniker Colonial FX, and finally a Jungle/Drum n Bass mix by Obamabo. Boom One Records is an International Netlabel based out of North Carolina with artists in 12 countries across the globe including Japan, the UK and Germany
