Kinnie Starr Dreams Bigger
Kinnie Starr has never shied away from honest conversations about tough subjects. A passionate and articulate artist and writer, her music often speaks to the issues she cares about. Today, a new video for “Dream Bigger” continues the conversation.

“I dream bigger. I dream our grand kids will have clean water” said Kinnie Starr, adding in arecent interview with !earshot “I use rap forms and folk forms to try and communicate what I’m interested in, which is primarily the health and well being of people, and that spills out into the health and well being of the environment we occupy. Water comes to the forefront pretty quickly in the conversation.”

Sharing this brand new video – produced by her long time collaborator Hannah C, for the track that appears on Aporia Record’s release of “Kiss It” – Kinnie posted on Facebook “I love my job, in terms of making creative product that speaks to a bigger picture than simple self promotion. Check it, and share the video if you believe we can manifest a healthier planet.”

Well, the idea I was raised with was that, as aboriginal people, everything that we do is political. When we wake up in the morning—that’s political. The fact that we’re here driving and surviving is political because everything has been done in the past 500 years to stop that from happening. So the politics part of it is automatic. It’s not even a choice. It’s a responsibility that we have to carry as aboriginal artists because it’s just part of our life. It goes back to that holistic way of seeing life. We don’t divide the political and the spiritual. The day to day. Those are all a part of the same thing.
