John’s latest song is released today, Friday 18th November. ‘The Voice of the Sea’ is a conservation one and bound become one of his most memorable, like ‘Rip Rip Woodchip’. A little while ago he was approached by the Australian Marine Conservation Society to write a song for their campaign which was also launched nationally today. ‘The Voice of the Sea’ highlights the plight of our precious oceans and is an appeal to everyone to think about how we’ve abused the sea and that we need to look after it.
‘My affinity with the ocean is as strong as my connection to and love for the bush. When I sat down to write about our love for the oceans, I couldn’t help but think about all the problems we’ve caused our seas and their wildlife, even though we say we love them. Aussies love our oceans but how have we shown that love? By taking and not giving. So the song became an unrequited love song – ‘where has it gone, your love for me?’
