Who is Jocelyn Ellis?

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Via one of my favorite artists on the planet, Nicole Renee, heard about Jocelyn Ellis as someone to look out for. These videos below are just a taste. I love her voice in the second song below titled Praying for a Savior, but both videos are worth a watchful listen. I've heard there is more to come from this artist, so stay tuned.

One of the Greatest Records of All Time

MusicLoad.Com presents Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Deja Vu

Together or apart, David Crosby, Steven Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young have that "it" thing. Anyone who grew up in the 1970's and remembers having the CSNY's 1970 release Déjà vu on vinyl might say this is one of the greatest records of all time.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà vu (Full Album)

And a classic live performance of a Neil Young song before Déjà vu was released by CSNY
CSNY - Down By The River (Live at Esalen - 1969)

Connect direct with Crosby Stills Nash & Young at CSNY.Com

As human beings and citizens, all members in CSNY are exemplary in their support of good causes and pursuit of peace, love truth and justice. Graham Nash especially comes to mind with his tireless efforts to support Bradley/Chelsea Manning.

Almost Gone - The Ballad of Bradley Manning - By Graham Nash & James Raymond

"Almost Gone" is a very important song. Supporting Bradley Manning means supporting bringing out the truth about atrocities carried out by the U.S. government and military industrial war machine. Also known as the Ballad of Bradley Manning it is one of the most important pro peace or anti-war songs released in 2011/2012 so far. Peace can be achieved through truth.

Below is the story about the song and the video and Bradley Manning
A companion video for "Almost Gone" -- a new song by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash and musician James Raymond (son of David Crosby) -- was released in December 2011 in support of accused U.S. Army whistleblower Bradley Manning.

The release was timed to Manning's first judicial hearing scheduled for December 16th 2011, the day before Bradley Mannings 24th birthday, following his more than 17-months in custody, including a year in solitary confinement that Amnesty International has characterized as "harsh and punitive."

Visually, the Almost Gone video is punctuated with bold graphics, disturbing images and harsh facts. The Bradley Manning Support Network has named the following day, December 17, its International Day of Solidarity ( PFC Manning, an Army intelligence analyst who had been stationed near Baghdad, was arrested in May 2010 under suspicion of leaking classified information, including a video showing the killing of civilians, to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

Nash and Raymond composed the song "Almost Gone (The Ballad of Bradley Manning)" during this spring's US tour of Crosby-Nash, and the new recording serves as the music bed for the video; it features an impassioned lead vocal by Nash, a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted (Crosby, Stills & Nash, and The Hollies). "Bradley Manning is a hero to me," he sings, acknowledging Manning's role in making public videos and documents that shed light on such as issues as the true number and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq, human rights abuses by U.S.-funded contractors and foreign militaries, and the role that spying and bribes play in international diplomacy.

Please watch these addition videos to fill in the blanks on Bradley Manning and his predicament.
