I have been anxious for new music from Terry Lynn and was surprised when I heard her voice on an acoustic guitar tune called »Gun Cry«. Very pleasantly surprised though.
»Gun Cry« is a song written by Swiss artist Elijah who had originally met Terry living in Waterhouse, Kingston, Jamaica. The two reconnected for a unplugged show for the opening of Hotel Rivington & Sons in fall 2011 in Zurich and came up with »Gun Cry« late one evening on the rooftop of our friend Russell Hergert’s flat.
A just a bang bakka bakka bang bang,
bakka bang bang bakka bakka bang bang.
It’s a gun cry another youth a die.
Elijah is the latest addition to Russ Hergert’s PHREE roster. He joins Wildlife!, Terry Lynn, and other iconic Jamaican artists such as Toots & The Maytals, who received a 2013 Grammy nomination for his acoustic album co-produced by Russ.
