Pittsburgh’s indie folk-punk act The Homeless Gospel Choir, a one man band consisting of outspoken singer-songwriter Derek Zanetti, has released its new album, I Used To Be So Young, today via A-F Records. It’s currently available to purchase digitally at iTunes and on limited edition vinyl LP from A-F Records at http://bit.ly/UdpD26.
The Homeless Gospel Choir is the Woody Guthrie of the post-hope / pre-apocalypse world that we live in today. He’s personally charged to tear down greed, privilege, and complacency, and is armed with hard truths, humor, and a worldview that every human could benefit from listening to. “I Used To Be So Young” is his opus.
“I Used To Be So Young was written as a form of rebellion to everything that is offered/ jammed down your throat from the moment you are born till the day you die,” Zanetti tells AltPress.com. “It's a soundtrack to the car crashed in your head, when you watch the news, go to church,the bank, a funeral, a wedding, or the voting booth.”
