Song Raises Awareness for Dyslexia
New Zealand musicians collaborated on a single to celebrate Dyslexia Action Week.
Thursday June 11th - 11:26am
To celebrate New Zealand's Dyslexia Action Week (June 15-21), several musicians have teamed up to raise awareness and understanding, with a new song.
Written by Don McGlashan, produced by Sean Donnelly and performed by dDub, the single "The Closer You Get, The Bigger I Look" is available for free download at dyslexiafoundation.org.nz/biggerilook. There is also a music video of the song.
McGlashan was inspired by personal experience with the challenges of difference, as well as the creative gifts that dyslexia can bring.
“As a parent of two unconventional children, I now how it feels when the world is quick to judge someone you love. Rather than write something that asked for help or patience, I thought something defiant, a ‘don’t judge me before you know me-type song would be better,’” he says.
