My name is Marie Chabot, and I am from Massachusetts. I have been singing and writing songs most of my life. Last February I attended a songwriter workshop in Nashville, TN, and at the time there was a lot of talk about immigration laws, and the Trump's ban. Our teacher, Mary Gauthier, gave us a picture and a poem of the statue of liberty, to see if we might be inspired to write. I found an old room with an upright piano, started thinking about my grandfather, who came to the US as a child from Italy. The words and melody started to flow, and this song, "A Different Kind of Life" is the result.
