"Minefields" is a song about emotional danger and learning to trust your gut. I wanted to celebrate it being the second single off my new album "Little Battles" by making it a bit more deluxe, so the song is accompanied by an entire live set from a night I run called "Breakfast With Apollo", part of my quest to promote collaboration and community building amongst DIY musicians.
I'm an entirely self funded artist trying to spend more time on the SMW project, but I also strongly believe that people should be able to participate in the arts by contributing what they can afford. So, if you want to get involved and help fund the project please do, but don't feel bad if you can't.
There are lots of ways of helping DIY artists like myself get their music out to a wider audience, I've written about it on my website here: shemakeswar.com/community/a-call-to-arms/
