44. Barack Obama (Someone to Wake)

Hello there and welcome to “Someone to Wake,” the first addendum to Of Great and Mortal Men.  This one was penned by Christian Kiefer and featuring guest lead vocalist Will Johnson (of Centro-matic and South San Gabriel).  It features all three of the principal songwriters of the Of Great and Mortal Men project (Kiefer, J. Matthew Gerken, and Jefferson Pitcher), and a horde of other guests, particularly for the big singalong ending.  Here are a few ways you can grab the art and music…

  1. I finally got this album the other day after a while of being on the fence about it. I’m so glad I went ahead with it.

    “Someone to Wake” is now one of my favorite songs on the record- it’s just so exuberant and celebratory. It makes a great supplement to this record.

  2. Just wondering where I can download/buy this song to go with the full album?
