Fish Creek Concerts April 26, 2019 with Rosie & The Riveters
Southwood United Church
Join us at Fish Creek Concerts Apr 26-2019 for Rosie & The Riveters, known for vintage-inspired folk anthems that paint a portrait of a woman’s voice in a man’s world.
Rosie & the Riveters never planned to get political. But opening a newspaper or watching the news these days made it impossible to see the status of women around the world and stay silent. The result is Ms. Behave – a collection of gritty, sultry, vintage-inspired folk anthems that paint a portrait of a womans voice in a mans world.
The band wrote over 40 songs in a cabin in Northern Saskatchewan before travelling to Toronto to collaborate with heavy-hitting Canadian songwriters like Royal Wood and Matthew Barber. A quick read through song titles like Gotta Get Paid, Let em Talk and I Wanna be King gives an idea of what they have to say. While their single, Ms. Behave, lays down a Bill Withers-inspired groove and rejects the policing of womens behavior, I Believe You sprung from the outrage and sorrow they felt after hearing the recent avalanche of stories of sexual assault. Produced by Joshua Van Tassel (Sarah Slean, Rose Cousins, Great Lake Swimmers), their sophomore album echoes Aretha Franklin’s demand for R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
