Check out some of Mike’s favourite dissident songwriters:


David Rovics is a brilliant activist songwriter from the U.S. , described as a peace poet troubadour for our time.  He invites you to make use of his songs at gatherings, rallies and schools.  Find his songs, lyrics and info here.

Silas Lowe is an astonishingly right-on (and often quite hilarious) young talent from Austin, Texas whose songs expertly skewer modern hypocrisies and celebrate modern heroes.  Here’s one of his tunes – his first solo album is coming soon and it is going to be outstanding!
