    Trade had this to say about Memorial Monday: A holiday that honors those that have made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country.

    “Memorial Day weekend, I believe is the most special Monday of the year. My Dad and my three uncles served in W.W. 2. Therefore, I am extremely thankful to our veterans, always and have written many songs along with videos to honor these great men and women. A number of years ago, I was researching and discovered there had never been a specific song for one of the most loved American holidays that commemorates the day and honors our brave warriors, so I decided to write, “Memorial Monday.”

    “I make my living recording and publishing in the music industry. Trade said, it’s my “Day and Night job” so on a daily basis, I create product (and videos) to release on  YouTube, iTunes & Amazon. Many times the songs are based on important U.S. or world news items. Being totally ‘obsessed’ with politics, besides love & relationships… my lyrics are greatly influenced by the constant surroundings of left versus right conflicts.” – Trade Martin.
