What's The Story About Rosie & the Riveters?
Rosie & the Riveters (Allyson Reigh, Alexis Normand, and Farideh Olsen) 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, folk-pop anthems that Billboard magazine calls “powerful and daring.”
Produced by Joshua Van Tassel (Rose Cousins, Sarah Slean, Great Lake Swimmers), their sophomore album loudly echoes Aretha Franklin’s demand for R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Their first single, “Let ‘em Talk”, lays down a Bill Withers-inspired groove and is a response to how women’s behavior is judged in society. A quick read through other titles like “Gotta Get Paid” and “I Wanna be King” gives an idea of what they have to say.
Rosie & the Riveters invests 20% of their merchandise profits into women’s projects and businesses 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 $13k to over 325 projects around the world.
