Berklee Student Pens “The Boston Song”

ClifNite

Boston, March 31, 2014 – Clef Nite, acoustic guitarist/singer and student at the Berklee College of Music has a song in his heart, “The Boston Song.”  He dedicates his song to the spirit and pride of Bostonians.

Nite was inspired to write “The Boston Song” because of the indelible spirit that he felt and saw as the city of Boston recovered from the Marathon bombings in 2013. Nite noticed Bostonians sharing a common bond, the bond of the human heart as they rebuilt their city.  There is a certain empathy required for making music, and as Nite sings and plays guitar in his heartfelt song it is both encouraging and patriotic.  It speaks to the diversity, pride and historic nature of Boston.

“We are very special people

we show the light for other people

even tho they try to shake us

that only made us get up stronger”

The cheers of celebration that normally greets runners at the finish line turned into cries of panic with destruction everywhere and injured people in the streets. What could have been really hit home Nite said when Berklee College was closed for a week because it was in the crime zone.

In his second year at Berklee College, Nite is following his dream of a music career. He states that Berklee is every musician’s dream school and places you on the path to success in your music career. Nite states that he hopes to change people’s life with his music and that Bostonians might accept The Boston Song as their Anthem song.
