Will King – Edmund Pettus Bridge [How Long, Not Long]

Last year, Will King entered the studio with drummer/percussionist Aaron Comess [The Spin Doctors] to record Edmund Pettus Bridge [How Long, Not Long], a song derived from a recent Civil Rights quest which he took through the Deep South.

The journey took him from Atlanta to Montgomery to Selma to Birmingham as well as interesting points in-between. The song, which tells the story of „Bloody Sunday“ and the plight leading to the passage of Voting Rights Act of 1965, will be used as a fundraiser for the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development Pathways to Freedom program.
