W(r)est Byron – can be viewed here on YouTube
Written by Raphael Lee Cass, leader of “The Byron Bay Light House Work”. It’s a song with a strong message designed to encourage people to make submissions (closing 29 March) about the proposed housing development in a location with important habitat and water quality values in a town that has inadequate infrastructure to support the additional population. It’s low budget and had very tight time constraints and the result of many hours of work by Raphael with willing helpers in the studio and in putting the clip together.
