Why Letlive's Jason is using his music to push for social change
From confronting police brutality against black Americans, to raising money for the victims, Letlive’s Jason Aalon Butler has spent 2016 pushing for change
It wasn’t just the change in musical direction that made Letlive’s fourth album, If I’m The Devil…, stand out from the rest of their work. It was its impassioned rallying cry against the racism and violence suffered by black Americans. The lead single, Good Mourning, America, was written following a conversation at a protest for Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. Its protest chant pulls no punches.
