Tomás Doncker is back with a truly explosive socially conscious single "Church is Burning Down" – a track that provides a glimpse into the bitter realities of modern race relations in America. This is just the first part in Doncker's greatest artistic statement to date, his forthcoming album "The Mess We Made."
It all started on The day of the Charleston Massacre. Given the fact that the recent "Road to Charleston" was emotionally taxing enough for me (aka:Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Ferguson, Eric Garner, Baltimore - not to mention some of the less publicized events around the country and the world), the heinous events which occurred on June 17, 2015 pushed me over the edge. I was overwhelmed with rage, hatred, confusion and disillusionment. I had no place to put these feelings. I had no idea how to process them. So, in a selfish attempt to maintain my own sanity I did the only thing I could do -- write about it. By Sunday, June 21, I had written 4 new songs . Within ten days I had recorded the 8 songs that would become "The Mess We Made".
Yes, it does feel like I've only put a band-aid on this bullet wound, a sonic salve to temporarily ease the sting. Maybe one day the bleeding will stop...Maybe...One day... (Tomás Doncker, NYC, 2015)
