“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”

NESONNews: Just released the single, Justice Day, inspired by the hearings of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.

California-based educator, vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Michael Lyon has a unique artistic mandate. It’s simple but rare. One of his stated purposes is that if he’s fortunate enough for listeners to spend time with his music, he wants to elevate them rather than bring them down. This doesn’t mean that his work serves up idyllic visions in songs that aren’t rooted in reality but, instead, songs that see the world for what it is and still find beauty in everything...” - Michael Rand, mobangeles.com - 07/14/22


What is happening right now in Ukraine beggars belief that one man's heartless, hell-bent obsession with grabbing ever-greater power (combined with the barbaric practices of his military and tacit approval of those across a wide swath of his country enabling this reign of terror) can be unleashing such a degree of devastation and countless atrocities on the courageous people of Ukraine and the world... Month after month people throughout the world have been horrified and disgusted at how the Russian president has been implementing his plan to undermine/destroy millions of lives to achieve his expansionist aims (in the name of supposedly "liberating" people who who have no desire to be bombed and tortured in this way) but where in all of the indiscriminate use of violence and mayhem is any sign of this man's and his country's humanity?
