“Lyrical Folk performed by -dan Pallotta-, which he dedicated to John F. Kennedy. You can listen to the text endlessly, people who found the era of the reign of this president will be pleasantly surprised by the stream of nostalgia. Sad, sad, but left in memory of bright memories. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)”
“Лирический Folk в исполнении -Dan Pallotta-, который он посвятил John F. Kennedy. В текст можно вслушиваться бесконечно, люди, которые застали эпоху правления этого президента будут приятно удивлены потоком ностальгии. Печальной, грустной, но оставивший в памяти светлые воспоминания.”
Dan Pallotta has lived many lives. The folk artist was born on the first day of John F. Kennedy’s presidency and went on to attend Harvard University. Pallotta ran for office and won at a young age, with his sights set on the American presidency. During the ‘80s, he began to realize he was gay, at a time when there were no out political leaders, and subsequently turned to pursue his dream of music.
Pallotta went off to Los Angeles, where he pursued a career as a singer-songwriter but was ultimately told by Clive Davis that his style of music wouldn’t lead to a breakthrough as an artist.
Pallotta’s next left turn led him to develop a highly successful career in philanthropy, creating the AIDSRides, Breast Cancer 3-Day walks, and Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention walks which raised a record breaking nearly USD600 milion in nine years.
At 61 years old, the married father of three has returned to music with an album of rich folk and Americana storytelling. His first single is “John F. Kennedy,” an inquisitive reflection on the feelings of both grief and liberation which come with leaving behind old narratives which no longer serve you.
Pallotta sees this song as a reflection on letting go of the part of himself that needed the adoration of becoming president, which was given new dimension through a dream he had where he witnessed JFK’s last breaths.
“What if that dream was trying to say that something old was going away, something that was dear to me, that it was gone and I was free.”
