The UK Songwriter and Performer Calls Out Snowflake Culture..
Tall Children is the artist persona for songwriter and live musician Ben Hughes. It’s the logical conclusion of a lifetime of hard work and dedication to his craft which has lead him to perform alongside Paul McCartney, The Zutons and Paolo Nutini. He’s also took his live performances around the world and has even given his own Ted Talks.
The Tall Children project is as much about a socio-political message as it is about the music. His musings on such issues, accompanied by his undeniable songwriting talent have since lead to support from Radio 1, New Music Friday, Clash and BBC Introducing.
“We should never lose our creativity, playfulness and fun. Being childlike is positive. But equally, many people grow older and taller, without growing up. Running rampant through the world’s resources, with increasing fear, but diminishing empathy for each other.” – Tall Children
The new single explores the culture of negativity and a self-absorbed attitude in today’s society. On the new single ‘Why Should I Care’, Hughes states
‘Why Should I Care’ is the culmination of a lot of hard work. It hones and refines both the TC production sounds with a marriage of acoustic guitar driven riffs. The lyrics are a reaction to any undeserving complaints that life is bad. From celebrity influencers to local millennials who need a wakeup call, this song is about asking them all why we should bother humouring them. As the chorus bluntly says: “I don’t need your hands up, got my own answers, this ain’t all about you.”
