The Free Spirits celebrate the Power of Our Love in their new single — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
Taken from their debut album 11:11, the song introduces the newly minted superduo of Canadian music industry veterans Chris Birkett and Shari Tallon. He’s a Juno-winning producer, composer, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist whose productions — including Sinead O’Connor’s I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, and albums by Buffy Sainte-Marie, Mel Brooks, Steve Earle, Bob Geldof, Alison Moyet, Dexys Midnight Runners, Talking Heads, The Pogues and The Proclaimers — have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. She’s a singer, pianist, flutist, composer, recording artist and music educator. Together, they’re unlocking their sonic synchronicity on 11:11.
Featuring thought-provoking lyrics, dynamic instrumental arrangements, and a style that spans multiple genres, 11:11 is the work of a group that prides itself on being more than just what meets the ear. The Free Spirits are a musical collaboration shedding light on life, the world, and how artists can help be a positive force for truth and change.
Birkett — whose song Where Do We Go From Here was featured alongside Dire Straits, Bob Marley, U2, Peter Gabriel and Queen, among others, on 1993’s One Voice, One Love compilation album in support of CARE International — says he believes “in the universal language of music to make a change in humanity’s attitude to climate, culture, and race.”
