V Bozeman – Free Bird
The song attempts to tackle tough life subjects and was a journey of personal discovery and re-interpretation for the young artist/songwriter from Los Angeles. The song, “FREE BIRD” was originally written and recorded by the Southern Rock band, Lynryrd Skynyrd.
“The beautiful and most riveting thing about Art is that it speaks to the individual and everyone gets something different from it.
To me, the overall message in “Free Bird” is LOVE!
Something the world needs more of!
Something we ourselves need more of!
LOVE is accepting and understanding…
It’s healing; amongst many other powerful things…essentially, it’s FREEDOM!
Through my expression of “Free Bird,” I wanted to send a visual message to break the chains of negative stereotypes, racism, poverty, war, sexism, self hatred, etc. that hold us back as a people, as a nation.
I decided to release this visual during President Barack Obama’s inauguration because the significance of this historic moment aligns with the overall theme of the song. As an artist I’ve always had a perspective and a voice and its important to me that I always be authentic to not only my fans, but myself in my expression.”
