The truth is out there – it just depends on where you look for it. If you’re searching for the answers to some serious questions about the world we live in today, then look no further than “Newspaper Man”, the newly released single by the talented rocker Scot Sier.
Sier sets the tone on his new track with a variety of fast-paced heavy guitar riffs that electrify your musical senses as he begins to tell the story of “Newspaper Man.”
“Newspaper Man on the corner.
I still don’t know your name.
I see your face on the front page.
You look the same.”
The Gary, Indiana native dives deep into the world of politics and societal injustices by pointing out that people who have worldly experience can decipher what they see and read in the news. This is all so clear when listening to the powerful chorus:
Eight quarters and a dollar.
Get your news hot off the press.
Delivered by a man with fifty years experience.
I can tell you anything about the news.
You need to know.
Current events, politics.
And those who’ve turned their toes.
Freedom of speech, human rights issues, and equality for all are the underlying themes on not only this new single, but prominent throughout his 2nd full-length, 8-song LP, “Space and Other Things” – also available now. The guitarist, and singer-songwriter gives us the meaning behind his new album by saying, “The goal of the new album is to showcase songs that serve a higher purpose fueled by my concerns over free speech, human rights abuse, rising inequality, and climate change.” Sier further explains, “I wrote and produced each song to deliver universal messages that I hope will bring people together to create a more enlightened world through meaningful change.”
The multi-talented and creative classical rock veteran collaborated with a host of acclaimed Los Angeles musicians on the new ambitious “Space and Other Things” album, including the likes of Chris Chaney, Aaron Sterling, and mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer, Michael Patterson.
Sier began his career as a child classical violin prodigy, following the long line of family musicians from the industrial city of Gary, Indiana. With an extensive library of hundreds of songs, his mission is to challenge the status quo through his unique guitar style and poetic lyricism.
