-------------------------------

"another casualty caused by our trade laws and corporate greed that our union ... fights every day." - Ernie Gambolin: President of United Steelworkers Local 1190


"They just don't seem like they want to have the steelworkers around here. They're phasing us out. And we don't know what we're supposed to do." - former employee of Frontier Industrial Corp.

The former Industrial Heartland of North America, consisting of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Illinois, and Ontario, is now just a faded memory. Post-industrial society has taken hold of the area and turned it into what residents call the "rust belt". Unions have been busted, corporate greed and capitalism has destroyed the physical land and the people, and the once promised rewards of hard work do not exist anymore.

The main fuel source powering this land, coal, is now being phased out. We are in the midst of a new wave of mass layoffs that have not been felt since the collapse of the steel and automotive industries in the 1980's. Coal, the black diamond of North America, has left physical scars on the mountains it was mined from. The black diamond has left thousands of people impoverished in places that their ancestors called "the promised lands".

People fled these beautiful cities to search for employment out west or back on the east coast. The relics, the smokestacks, and the blast furnaces still stand strong although they now are just carcasses of what they once were.

Now, after many years, people are rediscovering the cities that their forefathers built. Behind every rust belt city are millions of stories lost in time.

I hope, with this music, to provide an introduction to the stories of those who have been left disenfranchised, victims of corporate greed, and strangers in lands they originally called the industrial heartland.
