New Zealand Rocker Merv Pinny addresses the effects of refugee immigration through song

Press Release ( - LOS ANGELES - Mar 28, 2017 - The first strains of Merv Pinny’s new song “OB Can You Hear the Children Cry” are pulsating electric guitar and a driving beat. As the song continues, the full depth and breadth of the lyrics become clear – how can any world leader continue to let war displace children? Pinny’s grungy rock chords boldly challenge listeners to stand up for what they believe is right.

The accompanying video’s engaging images include an army of faceless corporate suits  marching ceaselessly towards the camera, the unnerving blank stare of a man in a gas mask, and children trapped behind the chain link fence of a refugee camp. Together, they create a startling acknowledgement of the current ongoing humanitarian crises occurring globally.

Pinny is not content to stop at just bringing awareness to the issue. All proceeds from the music will benefit various charities that serve children in crisis.

Pinny’s follow up to “OB Can You Hear the Children Cry” is set for release very soon. The goal of the single is to keep the conversation about the damaging effects of war on children going until there is a solution. “OB Can You Hear the Children Cry” and it’s follow up will be available on Pinny’s site, and on his YouTube Channel.
