The summer of 2011 - while the lockout at the steel mill drags on - a group of the city's singer songwriting elite join to create a picture, a snapshot of a complex scene.
Situated on the Great Lakes at the head of Lake Ontario lies the city of Hamilton. Half a million strong, that strength has been ebbing from the fibers of the strong back that helped build this country. After WW2, the birth of the worker's union as we know it saw with it, the birth of the prosperity and security so many of us have taken for granted. This tome to our reality reflects brilliantly on how - as the union is cut down, other jobs and businesses wither and die. As their numbers are cut 10 fold, the local 1005 had to endure the politics of big business as US Steel came to town to run the show - their way.
From the angry spoken word of 1005 poet Bill Mahoney, to the sadly poignant touches of Lori Yates, the styles of folk, pop, rap, celtic, blues and country infuse the 15 song, 42 minute compilation with genuine authenticity.
It's for you - it's for me - it's for all of us feeling it.
