Listen to the
Newspaper Man Single
Inspired by a real person and actual events, the first single from the Gary, Ind., rocker’s upcoming album Space And Other Things shares the story of a disabled man who sold Sunday papers on a city corner — until the paper he worked for was sold and he lost his job:
“The papers cutting corners
They say you have to go
Union men aren’t wanted
They say you’re getting old.”
Writing the song, Sier quickly found it morphing into a pro-union salvo for countless unsung heroes being exploited by corporations that care more about the bottom line than the people they employ. A driving, progressive rock track, Newspaper Man’s opening bass track — performed by bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) — sets the stage for an anthem dedicated to workers across the globe.
The multi-talented and creative classical rock veteran collaborated with a host of acclaimed Los Angeles musicians on Space And Other Things, which was mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer Michael Patterson. Sier began his career as a child classical violin prodigy, following a long line of family musicians. With an extensive library of hundreds of songs, his mission is to challenge the status quo through his unique guitar style and poetic lyricism.
