"You'll Rise up Again (For South Africa)"

Nicolette Aubourg

I wrote this solidarity song in response to the devastating July 2021 riots and destruction in my home country, South Africa. REVIEWS: “This song MUST be heard! I believe this song could be an anthem of hope for all South Africans.” - Danny Tate, award-winning songwriter. "Nicolette Aubourg pours heart and soul into a hymn of cyclic devastation and hopeful restoration in her emotionally resonant original song … a brilliant introduction to the artist's considerable and artistically conscious body of work. … striking emotional depth ... the intended message of hope and humanity promises to resonate among any person with a pulse!” - Jon Wright, Radio Airplay. “Such a heartfelt and uplifting soul-touching song.” - Wouter Kellerman, GRAMMY Award-winning flautist, composer, producer.

"Woodstock (In 5/4)"

Nicolette Aubourg

This is my own 5/4 time-signature version of Joni Mitchell’s song "Woodstock", played live, guitar and vocals, with no edits or punch-ins. REVIEW: "... daring and deeply inspired. ... a brilliant tribute and subtle re-imagining of the Joni Mitchell classic. ... the bold decision to arrange the track in 5/4 is both truly courageous and rhythmically daring." - Andre Avanessian, Radio Airplay. Credits: Vocals, Guitar, Arrangement & Production, Artwork: Nicolette Aubourg. Mixed & Mastered by Steve Holroyd. (P)Nicolette Aubourg 2021. Syresham Music Publishing (ASCAP) 2021.
