Singer-Songwriter David Haerle’s “Women Make The World Go ‘Round”

Celebrates Mothers

LOS ANGELES -Singer/songwriter/activist David Haerle’s new single, “Women Make the World Go ‘Round,” is a feminist anthem and thank you letter to all women – starting with his own mother and fanning out to include leaders, thinkers, scientists, activists, homemakers, all the women who impact our lives around the globe.            


            The song also features Bess Harrison on vocals and makes a wonderful Mother’s Day gift.  Download it for that special mother in your life at: iTunes,  Apple Music,  Spotify,  Amazonand Napster


            In the first verse of “Women Make the World Go ‘Round,” the Los Angeles-based artist sings: 


Women make the world go ’round

Don’t tell me you don’t think it’s true

Let’s start with your mother who

Brought you in the world and cared for you

And you’ll see what I’ve found, that they make

The world go around

           Haerle goes on to also acknowledge teachers who influenced him in his life, as well as such fearless and influential icons as Maya Angelou, Rosa Parks, and Susan B. Anthony when he sings, “Mothers, daughters, sisters, lovers, women we have wed/ Oh Maya, Rosa, Susan B., and others who have led.”

            Naturally, Mother’s Day is an important holiday to the singer. “My mom lives about 2,000 miles away from me,” he continues, “so I always make it a point to call her and send a card or flowers. I thank her for being a great mom. I was also blessed with a great stepmother, as well as two wonderful grandmothers who both lived to a very elderly age.  Thank you, moms!”


            The video for the song was directed by Red Phosphorous and shot at the historic Women’s March in Downtown Los Angeles, part of the worldwide march that drew millions this past January 21. It features portraits of a diverse range of women representing various ethnicities, backgrounds, religions, and sexual orientations. 


            “The song is an ode to women, for everything they have done and continue to do, for each of us as individuals and for the world.  But, the video is a thank you to the millions who came out to march for women’s rights. It’s a musical tribute to the historic Women’s March participants, to show how we applaud their activism and support their efforts to stand stronger together,” he adds.


            Haerle is wrapping up work on his debut full-length album, Garden of Edendale, due on Edendale Records later this year.
