“To offer this collaboration (across space and time!) with friends and family and mentors means the world to me: especially at this moment.. ‘Let us all unite’! This song started in a dream I had a couple years ago a few weeks after watching a Charlie Chaplin movie. In the dream I walked into an empty, run-down warehouse to play a show. There was no one there. No crew. No one. There was no gear. No microphones. But, I remember I walked up and out to the middle of an old stage, looked out at the empty room and started singing. And I kept singing this phrase ‘we are not machines” over and over. Somehow, people started coming in the warehouse slowly, and then all of the sudden I was hearing voices singing with me. ‘We are not machines…we are not machines’. The warehouse filled up with people…in a blur…all kinds of people. Many people had umbrellas, and they kept opening them…and I realized it had started to rain in a little bit through the crumbling ceiling…but everyone just kept singing. And here we are still singing. And here I am still dreaming.” —Pieta Brown

“As an artist collective, VUCA represents the diversity of our beautiful state. Through our collaboration, we seek to illuminate the dark corners where we deny our frailty and collective struggles.
In Elysian Fields, Amanda Hufff sings from the perspective of addiction. Many are quick to think of drugs and alcohol, but addiction is much more complicated and insidious than that.
Right now, we are witnessing a mass addiction to righteousness. As a country, we are so confused by where our identities end and our humanity begins that we are incapable of hearing one another; driving wedges between families and communities. E Pluribus Unum, out of many one. True for VUCA and our country. We wish to inspire all of us to push past divisive, self-serving stories and invite richer, kinder, and more constructive conversations.” —VUCA
“I wrote this song a few years ago to empower myself during a time where I felt the weight of the world was heavy just like it is now which is why I chose this song. It is metaphorical and poetic but also straight forward about embracing the skin I’m in even though I oftentimes feel judged for it. It was produced by my friend Randal Bravery, I never recorded it and I just feel like it’s a rare gem I hope people can vibe with!” —Zed Kenzo
Teamed up with @eauxclairewi & @boniver for their #FORWISCONSIN initiative encouraging political participation in our beautiful home state of Wisconsin. I chose to perform Frank Sinatra’s little gem “All My Tomorrow’s”; It’s the perfect tone note for the moment. Optimism and reality bound together in a bittersweet prayer for action.
