Song of the Moment

“Machine Age” by Terra Naomi

Wow, talk about haunting; this song will change you. “Machine Age” by Terra Naomi is the voice that all women need right now. This amazingly thoughtful song was written as a year reflection on the election of Donald Trump. Listening to this hit me the way people must have been hit by hearing Joan Baez or Bob Dylan for the first time. If I’m going to be honest, I cried through the entire thing. I truly believe this song will affect lives, it is the voice of pain and resistance. “I believe in love more than I want to hate” is the message we all need to get across in a time when so much hate rules our country. “Machine Age” is a taste of what’s to come from her full length album due out this summer.

Terra has an astoundingly beautiful voice and the way “Machine Age” is recorded walks us through the range of emotions I’m sure a lot of us felt and still feel after the announcement that Trump would be the President of the United States. This will be an anthem for years to come; “Machine Age” is that powerful. Terra Naomi used her rage, anger, disbelief and most importantly love to create this masterpiece.
