Hear It! Jam of the Week: Ki Redd (Sneak Peek!)
Evansville native channels positive energy through current racial turmoil in the U.S. Ki Redd, 23, released a track that will set the stage for his entire production.
“We've always talked about finding our sound,” Redd said. “We're definitely on the right path.”
“12:01,” a single Redd released from his newest project was inspired by Mike Brown and the events that have since unfolded in Ferguson, Mo. The track is currently available on SoundCloud. The title of the track is named after the approximate time Mike Brown was murdered.
“I wrote that song after I came back from Ferguson,” Redd said.
Redd traveled to Ferguson, two weeks after Brown's death, to witness first-hand how the community was dealing with their incredible loss.
“I felt an overwhelming feeling of love and I felt at home.” he said. “I went to the neighborhood where Brown was shot and saw the memorial. And it really hits you. There were also a few marches and rallies I participated in.”
The town was peaceful, and it put everything in perspective, he said.
