Karl vom Dorff's 2018 Election Campaign Song for Cobourg Council
Dear Cobourg! This might be a first - a candidate writing a song about his home town for the elections! After months of reading, making ads, campaigning, planting lawn signs, I needed a break... I turn to music to relax.
This video's background track has a song that I wrote, composed, and recorded myself (here in Cobourg of course), with my own Cobourg material (videos and photos). A good friend helped with the guitar track, I did the rest on my synthesizer.
It is by all means not professional, my voice isn't the greatest, and I threw it together in a couple of hours, but I believe it's a genuine and raw attempt to give our electorate an insight into my life, the town I love, and what I'm about.
I hope you like it!
P.S - I had some advice on whether to post this or not. Amongst them 'publishing it is a risk, but not publishing it is a risk as well', and 'no publicity is bad publicity'!
