I discovered Simon Hassle earlier this year and fell in love with his song “Now Is Here”. It is topical and addresses the world’s concerns about the environment. It proves that a good pop song can still deliver some social commentary. Simon has sampled part of Oren Lyon’s famous “the ice continues to melt” speech to the UN Millennium World Peace Summit – with permission of course.
The song is available on iTunes around the world including Australia so I’m happy. I’m hoping this isn’t the last we’ve heard from Simon Hassle.
