2019's TERMS OF SURRENDER NOMINATED FOR BEST AMERICANA ALBUM AT 2021 GRAMMYS
2021 Grammy ® nominee Hiss Golden Messenger releases the soulful new track “Sanctuary," with an accompanying video today. The song was written and produced by bandleader/songwriter M.C. Taylor. The KidEthnic -directed music video features Taylor singing of reconciliation and hope, along with some young faces.
“Over the past year, I've been thinking a lot about how we care for ourselves and each
other, and how hard it is to live truthfully in a world that is so tangled. ‘We sell the world to
buy fire, our way lighted by burning men.’ says the poet Wendell Berry. The song
‘Sanctuary’ is one small piece of my own personal reckoning with what it feels like to
search for some kind of shelter in the storm. Fare thee well, John Prine, AKA Handsome
Johnny, a speaker of truth if ever there was one.”
– M.C.Taylor / Hiss Golden Messenger
