With “One for Europe” Francie Conway speaks pro-European Union language.
By taking a closer look at the European Union, it doesn’t seem too shiny. In times of loud voices where some political parties are blaming the European Union for their own local mistakes, treaty violation, proceedings and Brexit, other voices that still like and support Europe, cannot be heard. These are the times for singers and songwriters, so that the message of the silent majority can be heard.
Influenced by this current political and social situation in Europe, Francie Conway was inspired to bring his ideas to a team of legendary musicians, producers and songwriters.
“One for Europe” has arrangement influences from our tribal past to the present day, it’s an exciting blend of cultures with a positive message.
