Paul Fox – Warzone Part Two – Refugees

Two decades after he first highlighted the topic, the UK roots singer returns to the subject of war and displacement, asking us why nothing has changed

London, 17th October 2022 UK roots reggae singer and producer Paul Fox focuses on the horrors of war and displacement for his track Warzone Part Two – Refugees. Taken from Fox’s current album, Same Blood, Warzone Part Two revisits a topic he first examined on a track of the same name in 1993.

Starting with a poignant vocal melody, then building to an insistent reggae stepping beat, the track tells the story of refugees fleeing conflict in unflinching detail. Paul and his wife Helen sing the lyrics using ethereal harmonies that recall ancient forms of storytelling music from around the globe.

“I released a song called Warzone in 1993 about human conflicts around the world” says Paul explaining the track’s journey. “Warzone Part Two – Refugees contains a throwback to the original chorus but looks at another aspect of human conflict… the phenomenon of refugees. Often refugees are seen as a problem for the nations they are fleeing to and the human aspect of their plight gets forgotten. I think about how terrible it must be for people to leave their homes and homeland, suffering awful experiences and losses to go to countries where they are often not welcome. I wanted to make a song that might make people think about the human side of the refugee issue.”

Inspired by the 80s UK roots reggae sound system revival led by Jah Shaka, Paul Fox cut his first tune with Nick Manasseh, Writing On The Wall, three decades ago. He releases via his Sound Business label – whose African Mask logo was inspired by the title of Writing On The Wall’s B side. Through the years, he has collaborated with revered reggae artists including Apache Indian, Jonah Dan, Michael Rose, Rod Taylor, Brother Culture, Dubheart, and Alpha & Omega.

Warzone Part Two is accompanied by its military-drummed flipside, Living In A Dub Zone – which appears on Same Blood’s companion album Dub Blood.
