LISTEN, WATCH, BUY & SHARE I BELIEVE YOU
Of the song, the band says, “We wrote ‘I Believe You’ because we were nauseated by the results of various sexual assault trials that resulted in minimal or no sentences for the perpetrators. The way that survivors were torn apart during trials and in the media reminded us why so many women stay silent. We wanted to be a voice of compassion and love for survivors.”
I believe you when the jury has failed
I believe you, no, you’re not telling tales
Stand for your truth, you’re not alone
I’ve been there, I believe you

What's The Story About Rosie & the Riveters?
Since the band’s formation in 2011, the Riveters have quickly taken the folk scene by storm sharing the stage with the likes of Arlo Guthrie, Serena Ryder and Fred Penner. The band’s reinvention of vintage folk garnered much national attention for their debut album, Good Clean Fun!, released in 2015. It peaked at #9 on Earshot Magazine’s national folk/roots chart, and their single, Ain’t Gonna Bother, reached the #5 spot on the CBC Radio 2’s national Top 20 countdown. In 2016 they won a Saskatchewan Arts Award (Emerging Artist Category) and they also picked up nominations for a Canadian Folk Music Award (Vocal Group of the Year) and a Western Canadian Music Award (Roots Duo/Group of the Year).
"Rosie & the Riveters put on one of the best live shows you'll ever see - you'll go home with a big smile on your face." — RICH TERFRY, CBC RADIO 2
Inspired by Rosie the Riveter, the feminist icon who symbolized the women’s movement into the workforce during WWII, the Riveters seek to empower women to be ambassadors for change within their own communities. In support of this vision they invest 20% of their merchandise profits in women’s projects around the world through KIVA.org. They’ve helped women like Alice in Kenya expand her horticulture farm and Maria in Ecuador purchase a sewing machine for her tailoring business. To date, they’ve contributed more than $9400 to over 200 projects around the world.
Allyson Reigh, Alexis Normand, and Farideh Olsen are the charming women who make up Rosie & the Riveters.
