On February 26th, 2013, Alynda Lee Segarra celebrated her golden birthday and wrote this song, Everybody Knows, in honor of the one year anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s tragic death.
It’s clear if you’ve listened to any of Segarra’s work that she is a woman who doesn’t tread lightly in the world. Segarra walks this life with intention, compassion, and laser beam focus. Her ability to transmute issues of injustice, violence, and racism into stunning songs rivals that of a champion weightlifter. This is her power and her gift, and thankfully, we all benefit from it.
Hurray For The Riff Raff’s new album, “The Navigator,” is available March 10 via ATO Records. March 10 can’t come soon enough, if you ask us, but you can pre-order the album here.
On The Farm sessions are directed and filmed by Emilee Booher at the beautiful Pendarvis Farm.
