(Roanoke Times article by Tad Dickens dated Thursday, September 09, 2010) FRIDAY My Radio CD Release Party With Colourslide After a couple of years of singles, EPs and movie soundtrack work, Roanoke band My Radio is ready to release a full-length album. The record includes a song called 'Neda,' about a young woman killed in Iran during student protesting there. It's a pretty and sad number, with quality that is no surprise coming from this talented act. Go to this story at roanoke.com/entertainment or to blogs.roanoke.com/cutnscratch to hear the song and read more about it. (Roanoke Times 'Cut-n-Scratch' by Tad Dickens dated Thursday, September 09, 2010) The story behind the My Radio song "Neda" Thanks to My Radio singer/keyboardist JP Powell, who took some time out to write about this powerful number about Neda Agha-Soltan, a young Iranian woman killed during the 2009 Iranian election protests. Hear this song and other cuts from the new My Radio CD on Friday at Kirk Avenue Music Hall. First, the song. Now, the story behind the song ... Basically I had a pretty well developed idea for a song that at the time I thought was going to be about the other side of death or the 'afterlife.' I've had a lot of personal experience with loss in my life and I wanted to write a song about the ones we lose and the hope that they are still out there somewhere cheering us on... guiding and supporting us... or simply by us in our time of need. I had most of the melody and some strong lyrical phrases as well. After working on the song I went out and ran into an Iranian-American friend of mine. We talked about this Iranian movie called "No One Knows About Persian Cats" that highlights the underground music scene in Tehran (by underground I'm being literal as they can go to jail or worse for playing rock music in Iran). He also gave me some personal insight into his experiences with the underground music scene there. That conversation stuck in my head because it gave me hope for the young people in Iran. If they can find ways to subvert the system by playing rock then they are OK in my book. Later that night I started working on the song again though there was still no connection to Neda or the underground musicians in Iran. I knew that I wanted to incorporate the idea of calling across from the other side... communicating from the place that we go after we die. In Christianity, Judaism and Islam, angels all perform this action as messengers of God or divine messengers. I still felt like the song needed and wanted to be about something specific and not general. I was frustrated so I went to the computer and googled some of the lyrical ideas in different combinations to see what would pop up. The first thing was a story about Neda as it was the anniversary of her death. It hit me like a ton of bricks and I knew that the song was about her. What really got me was that Neda is translated from Persian to mean 'Divine Message.' One of the phrases I was working on ("I'm burning...") turned out to be the last words she spoke before she died. I knew the song had to be about her. Oh and she was also a musician. A singer. I then thought about my conversation from earlier in the evening. The song was about Neda. When I brought the song to the band it was at a pretty fast tempo and rocking. We fought through the song for 2 hours and I hated it. I think everyone else did as well. It felt like a bad cover song and I was completely frustrated. We worked on some other songs and we were going to call it a night. I assumed that the song was headed for the scrap heap. It was Hunter who suggested that we try it again but this time at a much slower tempo and with the vibe of U2's "With or Without You." We played it once that way and it blew me away. Through the recording process and the handful of times that we've played Neda live, I got chills every time I had to sing it. I normally do not write about such a specific topic and certainly not about a young girl that I never knew who's life ended so tragically, but the more I learned about her the more I had to write about her.
