"DROP" FROM TRUTH OR DARE
REBEKAH HILGRAVES/CHRIST DANIELS-Authors
BLIND PHOENIX-Artist/Band


"Drop" began as the story of a man in a bar wondering whether a woman who comes in might just talk to him. He buys her a couple of rounds and hopes she'll look his way, but it never happens. It touches on the idea of crushes, whether for celebrities or ordinary people, that may or may not ever amount to anything.

FREEDOM GREATER THAN LOVE
ROBERT HERZ-Writer/Director

3:40 Minutes



"Freedom Greater Than Love" is a new original music and video composition portraying a world social justice anthem. It is performed by the group, One Right, a collaboration of top Philly & NY musical talent whose goal is to inspire and start a conversation. Our sound is rooted in the long-standing hip hop and r&b genres of our cities.



We favor insightful lyrics and smooth melodies. Our debut single, 'Freedom Greater Than Love', presents a social justice anthem inspired by the world's desire for a just and free society for its people.



The imagery accompanying the song takes the format of a simple travelogue photo album that is easily understood by anyone who is anywhere in the world.

"HARMONY" FROM TRUTH OR DARE
REBEKKAH HILGRAVES/CHRIS DANIELS-Authors
BLIND PHOENIX-Artists/Band


This song is about encountering love after finding contentment in being alone.



It is about discovering harmony together, but it also acknowledges mortality and the certainty of loss we experience as living beings.

"HOW DO WE SAY GOODBYE" FROM TRUTH OR DARE
REBEKKAH HILGRAVES/CHRIS DANIELS-Authors
BLIND PHOENIX-Artist/Band


Rebekkah's eulogy for her mother inspired the lyrics for this song. It was, as you might imagine, one of the most difficult songs to write.



The way Chris and Rebekkah often work together is by sending ideas back and forth. In this case, Rebekkah told Chris she wanted to adapt words from the eulogy into a song.



Chris quickly composed a chord structure and the springboard for the melody, but it would be more than two months until the lyrics coalesced around the title and a single line, "You must have known you had to be home by Christmas eve."

"THE DRAGON" FROM TRUTH OR DARE
REBEKKAH HILGRAVES/CHRIS DANIELS-Authors
BLIND PHOENIX-Artists/Band

Oriental, NC was among the towns hardest hit by Hurricane Florence. The weekend before it hit, Michael and Rebekkah had been in upstate New York for a music festival. As they drove back to North Carolina, a friend called to warn them about the dire weather that was coming in. Rebekkah's mother was still in Oriental, and by then had largely lost the use of her legs.



To stay inland and leave her there was unthinkable, so they drove into the path of the hurricane to get her out and to higher ground. She was stubborn, and persuading her to leave was a special challenge. What finally convinced her was love.
