Reverend Bones changed his life around recently after being sucked into a world of religious fundamentalism he got sucked into from a very young age. ‘Tycoon‘ is his real story that should make you think and give you chills.
Reverend Bones is the new moniker of Australian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and climate activist, Michael John Bones. He makes music about his former life being in a religious cult, his life to help the planet survive and his new path to help others. He sings with a eye to the future and the concern in his voice is palpable.
This is the exciting lead single that forms part of his debut LP ‘Escape From Heaven‘, which is a deeply personal exploration on the topic of religious fundamentalism. He wants to help create a safe place for former Exvangelicals, to feel comfortable enough to share their stories of an extreme life, that has changed drastically since getting away from that scary world.
With stories about how sex, money and power rules the world, he sings with such care in a world that has shown him how extremism can be so blind. With so many people unfortunately stuck in a world that they didn’t choose, his vocals are strong, tender and you feel the hairs on the back on your neck shiver. This is music with a real message of hope.
‘Tycoon‘ from the passionate Australian musician climate activist Reverend Bones, is a sensational song and story that will probably be made into a movie. With a music video on the way that is bound to raise the eyebrows of many, this is a re-awakened creative, who is seeing clearly now and is only getting started.
