On My Way Home - An Immigrant’s Lament is a newly released song written, produced and performed by Peter Link. The issues of immigration today are as perplexing a problem as many of the most challenging issues that we, as the human race, face.  Why? Because at the heart of the Immigration problem lies one of our fundamental truths or principles that we all must live by — the Golden Rule. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”The song is one man’s story of his journey as an Immigrant to America. The song was also made into a music video by videographer, Skye Malone.  In this episode Peter both discusses the evolution of the song and also interviews Skye detailing his creative process in the making of the video.Watch "On My Way Home" on Vimeo  Watch "On  My Way Home" on YoutubeScattershot Symphony is presented by Watchfire Music.

I’ve always been a composer/record producer who wrote for other people (albums) and for projects – (musicals, movies, television, ballet, etc.)  But sometimes certain ideas and songs were more personal and closer to my heart.  I never saw myself as a recording artist first, but sometimes I was simply the right guy for the song.  In this first of many podcasts, I’d like you to get to know me. The best way of doing that is through my songs. So, these are songs I always wanted to sing myself ... and finally did.  90% music.Brought to you by Watchfire Musicwatchfiremusic.com
