From the city streets of Detroit to the farms of northern Michigan to the beaches of California’s coast, singer songwriter Joe Reilly shares his love for life in this song that gently reminds us to come back to the present moment, breathe, and smile with those around us. Joe uses elements of folk music, hip-hop, poetry, and mindfulness to build inclusive community and celebrate our interdependence.
Joe is part of the Earthwork Music Collective, a community of musicians that believes in the intrinsic and historical power of music to raise both community and self-awareness and serves to facilitate and encourage original music in the state of Michigan and beyond. Joe is also a student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and wrote this song while on retreat at Plum Village, a community of mindful living in southern France.
Visual artist Nathan Meadows followed Joe through his travels and performances in Michigan and California to artfully depict this video collage.
