This timely song, Stand Up, was just released, with a positive message of trying to get people to work together for peace, for peace in Israel, for peace in Ukraine, for peace everywhere, which it turns out requires some effort and maybe a little pain. John Sawoski’s former next-door neighbor in Hollywood, Ryan Moore (Disney TV songwriter and DEVO keyboard programmer) is on vocals, with Sawoski’s voice added on the chorus. It also features Frank Infante (Blondie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, Divinyls) on guitar, a little bluesy grand piano played by Sawoski, and 3 Moog synthesizers played by Ryan Moore. It was mixed and mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
