Out singer-songwriter Matt Gold is one Indiana resident who's unhappy with the state's discriminatory Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and he's ready to make his voice heard -- in a new song.
The critically acclaimed musician, who's lived in Bloomington for the past two decades, just uploaded the haunting protest song "On the Way" to his SoundCloud page.
"I felt I had to write a song about what was going on in the state I have lived in for the past 20 years," Gold writes in a message to listeners. "This is my way of hopefully helping the cause with positive reinforcement, sending a message of love, not hate."
The song, which features Gold on keyboards and vocals, condemns the hateful new law ("Even God himself just wouldn't stand for your waste") but also offers a an uplifting message, with Gold singing on the bright chorus, "Go easy love / We need the love."
Gold's latest EP, Let It Out, is available on iTunes.
