- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
In this acoustic video recording, Tom Francis sings “Where I Stand”, a song inspired by the poetry of Mahvash Sabet, a member of the Yaran imprisoned for her beliefs since 2008. A book of her works, called Prison Poems, is made of poems that were smuggled out of Evin Prison and then translated into French and English. Tom’s homage to her poetry in this song is especially poignant. While the video is simple, the song is richly textured and deeply moving.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Tom has begun putting together his third album and I am really looking forward to listening to it in the coming months. His other albums, From Up There and Wishing Well, are available for purchase on his website.
