"Fairy Tale, USA"
Lyrics by Izzy Eldridge and Brennan Santaniello, seniors at Berwick Academy
Music by Putnam Smith
This song was written during a two day residency, in a ‘Social Justice’ themed English class.  After discussing various social justice themes, students paired up to write songs on various topics: race relations (and police violence), the environment, refugee resettlement, women’s rights, and more.  The focus was on trying to tell the stories of underrepresented voices.  This song explores the narrative of a newly single Mom trying to make ends meet, after being abandoned by her husband.
