"Riches are Free" is a conceptual music album inspired by the current sociopolitical atmosphere in America.
shortly after the 2016 Presidential election, it is the result of one
citizen's imagination of how such turbulent and divisive times could
lead to a change in collectively held values and beliefs, and an
insurgence of goodwill.
This wishful thinker's name is Will, and
the songs reflect a philosophy distilled from minimalistic excursions as
a touring music artist and long distance backpacker.
“Riches are Free” is a Science Fiction Music Manifesto that combines the wisdom of the trail with a hopeful vision of the future.
All songs and stories written, recorded, and performed by William Borg Schmitt.
Sitar-box on "So Long ... As We" performed by David Campbell.
