“The inherent prophecy of the ‘wall theme’ then manifested itself in the on-street killing of George Floyd. Then amazingly, we saw the outpouring of humanity, love and oneness in the BLM demonstrations all over the world. For me, this is a vision of “a new Jerusalem”, a place where all God’s children can stand together as one humanity.”

2020 has undoubtedly been a tough year for all, full of challenge and uncertainty. Yet, Jon Scott has navigated these difficuties and processed the hatred of the world through music.

“Out of all the craziness, hatred, spite and nastiness, the majority of folk all around the world marched together to stand up for what is blatantly right. It’s a seminal moment, era-defining and world awakening, particularly given the fact that this all occurred in lock down.”

“In particular, I hope that the video will be a picture chronicle for the world of this amazing uplifting of spirit particularly for the future generations, as a benchmark of what we should be about as all god’s children or if one prefers, children of one creation and of the universe”.

Not only the project’s singer-songwriter, but also its guitarist and percussionist, Jon’s talent knows no bounds. Assisted by friend and fellow creative Gordon Hulburt, Freedom – A New Jerusalem is set to be a meaningful masterpiece.
