Texas-based virtual artist Swade Soul (SS) has released a moving song aimed at the education of Sex Trafficking titled “RED LITE”.
“I was working for this company when one of our new employees called in on a conference call, and informed everyone listening that her 17-year-old daughter was just taken/kidnapped”, explains Swade. “She went on to explain that her child had just left the house walking to a relative's home a few blocks away for a visit. She was then approached by a passing car with a male driver and female passenger. After what seemed to be a short verbal conversation she was then forced into their vehicle against her will, he continues.
“That day was the moment I felt the need to address this crisis from my point of view and make the seriousness of this fast-moving trend digestible for the average person. So I wrote a song about it,” remarks Swade Soul.
This story, fortunately has a happy ending. Law enforcement was able to locate and rescue her after a month-long absence 250 miles away. But the trauma involved with the victim and her family is immeasurable.
The opening line of Red Lite hits like a salvo with the initial verse beginning, ‘You're playing Chess, when Checkers is more your game’.
Swade thrives on being an artist with his finger on the pulse of expressing real life issues in the form of music, and he believes that keeping a watchful eye on your surroundings is ever important today.
