How to write a good protest song. A lesson from Jordan Page.

FM had a chance to catch up with Jordan Page, a singer-songwriter who toured with Ron Paul’s 2012 campaign who is spreading the message of freedom through his music. We caught up with Jordan at MY PATRIOT SUPPLY where Page was performing for an in-store performance. Jordan said a professor had approached him after a gig and said he liked his folk songs, but he needed to ask questions. Page said he realized what the Prof was speaking about. All good folk / protest songs ask questions. They make you think. They inspire you to use your mind. Bob Dylan asked, “How many roads must a man walk down?”

FM examines two questions Page asks in two of his most honest songs of freedom…

1. Have you ever seen a country bent and broken on it’s knees? Or line of homeless hungry mouths in line begging please. Have you heard the people calling who are hungry in the night,have you heard the prayers of Soldiers who are weary from the fight?

That’s a powerful song… ‘Light of Revolution’ – Do Enjoy!

2. When the red flag of tyranny flies freely in the open, is it then that’ll you’ll finally notice?

Ask the right questions and the people will listen… ‘Liberty’

  1. My wife and I met Jordan at the end of a very long dirt road in Arizona last year. He was performing at a friends home and they were kind enough to invite us. We were blown away. Hands down the best performance we have ever seen.
