With his latest single, Tobique First Nation singer/songwriter pays homage to that bright light in the sky.
Through good times and bad, hot and cold, dazzling and dim, there is one constant on this giant rock we call earth – the sun. In Mike Bern’s newest single, Grateful Sun, the award-winning artist pays homage to that which always ignites.
“The world can be a dark place at times,” Bern explained. “I wanted to write a song that gave thanks to life itself.”
Underneath ethereal instrumentals with an indie twist, Bern serenades the sun from our universal human perspective, encapsulating our relationship with life’s shining necessity. Bern touches on the hardships we all face, and how the sun acts as a foil to the darkness, infinitely illuminating for brighter days.
Grateful Sun is Bern’s follow up to his previous dual singles, Ancestors and Shrine of Shirl, which both hit the top five of the Indigenous Music Countdown.
Grateful Sun by Mike Bern is available now on all major streaming services.
