With election fever coming into the final stretch, here is a post that brings together activism and music. Roseanne Cash is someone who I follow regularly on Twitter. I am not the biggest country music fan, but I truly believe she is an artist who is constantly evolving and has important things to say. Certainly carrying the torch of her father and creating music with heart.
She has a new album just released "She Remembers Everything" and the lead cut is actually a feature for Keb' Mo where she is practically just back-up vocals. It is called Put A Woman in Charge! Written by Keb' Mo and Beth Nielsen Chapman - the song is an anthem for the #MeToo and Women's movement. It chronicles the pitfalls in our society led my men who are endlessly building technology as well as walls. It is pretty transparent to read the obvious parallels. I love the gruff rhythm of the piece as well as its clever melody with hooks. I'm thinking that maybe it is a new tune for Dorothy & Song Sister to add to their rep???
