Within two months of its release “Everyday Heroes” has already received 4000 hits and is available on all the global streaming platforms.

 As described by the Melbourne based creative artiste Satyajeet Samant in his website karmicRed.net,  “ Everyday Heroes is a powerful, anthemic, rock tribute to first responders, teachers, parents, health care workers, firemen, police, military, and anyone who exhibits kindness to others. The driving guitars, soaring melody and heartfelt vocals make this song especially moving”.

It all started one day at 5.30am as a fun musical experiment by writer, singer, and guitarist Satyajeet Samant Satyajeet Samant and a remote song-writing collaboration with a New York based lyricist Susan Simonson.

This experiment developed to be a great musical piece “ Every Day Heroes” thus demonstrating how continents, countries and cultures could  meet and create something beautiful and demonstrate our gratitude and labour of love to many selfless community volunteers who do  not seek any limelight.

The Indian Telegraph spoke to unassuming Satyajeet Samant, an Information Technology professional turned a creative artiste who has performed with Farhan Akhtar and opening ceremonies of Cricket Australia

TIT: What is the context and background of “everyday heroes”?

Satyajeet:  The song is about appreciating people who do not seek spotlight but important. It is about acknowledging. It is about gratitude, acknowledging the gratitude, expressing the gratitude, saying thanks to faceless heroes. In addition to doctors and nurses, we must remember cleaners, truck drivers, mental health counsellors. This song is to thank them. The lyrics of this song are written this way.

TIT: Who composed and what prompted this beautiful number?

Satyajeet:  It was composed before Covid. New York based lyricist gave it to me in Jan/ Feb. I was asked to do the melody. I did it within half an hour. I did not have to change the lyric. Looked like It was made for each other. I got other musicians from Melbourne like Greg, jenny It is so timely for this Covid times and will be very apt for many coming months or years.

TIT: What are your future projects?

Satyajeet:  Our next song is coming up.  I am passionate about empowering songs to lift the mood of the community and to motivate them to rise above their day to day miseries.

The Indian Telegraph congratulates Satyajeet Samant and his team for “Everyday Heroes” a true tribute to so many unsung volunteers in these trying Covid times.

EVERYDAY HEROES

You carry the load of your brother’s weight 
Though it may be hard, you take his place 
Step in when he falls, pick up where he left off 
No one may notice or praise, it’s just another day 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
Heroes 

A child cries and you go to his aid 
Someone sins, so you offer him grace 
See hungry eyes and you fill their plates 
That is who you are, do not need a big parade 

You carry the load of your brother’s weight 
Though it may be hard, you take his place 
Step in when he falls, pick up where he left off 
No one may notice or praise, it’s just another day 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
Heroes 

For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes  

There are millions, getting by each day 
Do all you can, earn your pay 
No one says you must, it is just what you do. 
Right and wrong are clear, do not need it taught to you

You carry the load of your brother’s weight 
Though it may be hard, you take his place 
Step in when he falls, pick up where he left off 
No one may notice or praise, it’s just another day 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
Heroes 

For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes 
For everyday heroes
