Peasant “On The Ground”


“It is a common misconception of social collective thought that human strength is an admirable trait. Looking for hero’s or self acclamation to justify a personal cause usually manifests into an ego Goliath would be intimidated by. Just like the boy with the rock, Peasant aka Damien DeRose uses an acoustic guitar and an unabashed and unapologetic view of human vulnerability to conquer, or at least battle, the emotional apathy we find ourselves privy to in trying to compete with our personal demons. The smallest pebble can occasionally make the strongest weapon in the battle against what we think we want and who we really are.”
