Jeremy Dutcher – Motewolonuwok [Streaming]

Today Jeremy Dutcher dropped the highly anticipating second album called Motewolonuwok via Secret City Records.
A powerful sweeping emotional album that blends classical, parts jazzy and alternative with a powerful message.

About the album by Jeremy:
The Motewolonuwok album inspiration began with a poem by Cherokee writer Qwo-li Driskill.
“From the heavy debris of loss, together we emerge,” a singular story of a two-spirit kin who was taken too soon, and calls us all together to witness, celebrate and heal.

Jeremy sings in Wolastoqey which is his native tongue, considered an endangered language that is anchoring his work while he continues to reimagine the song traditions of his people from the banks of the Wolastoq River, just like he had previously done on his first full-length.

Motewolonuwok is the first time writing and singing in English.
A powerful invitation for collective healing and understanding.
“Shared tongue is a beautiful gift, with a complicated reason,”
Dutcher explains.
These new English songs are also a way of singing directly to the newcomer, or settler, in their own language is a direct line of communication that seeks to platform his community’s stories of healing, resilience, and emergence to all that may hear.
