Debut Album by Newburgh's Decora Set to Drop

In August 2010, when I profiled Hudson Valley hip-hop crew ReadNex Poetry Squad for Chronogram, I found their intense focus and seriousness of purpose concerning social change greatly inspiring. The group has been inactive collectively these last few years, its members pursuing other artistic and community-oriented projects. Most visibly active has been Decora, one of ReadNex’s four MCs, who is readying his solo debut, Bread and Oats, for release next month.

Recently, Decora released a single from the album, “Flowers.” The tune pays tribute to his late hero and mentor Pete Seeger, referencing the folksinger’s classic “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” in the chorus as the verses offer rapid-fire commentary on our current sociological and environmental situations. “[The track] comes from the perspective of a younger generation in hopes of reaching all generations and making the world a better place,” explains Decora. “Which is something Pete mastered so well.”
