Thirteen Roses singing in a male world. Far from interpreting this sentence in any politic or vindictive way, but don't dissmiss those ways at all, this LP aims to highlight the power of female singers in Twentieth Century's recordings industry, just to pay tribute on those women who, in many cases, broken rules and led the way for next generations.
Some of these roses were big and beautiful, and changed their colours whenever they wanted, some others flowered briefly buy left behind amazing frangances that can still be appreciated.
A small garden of just thirteen roses, singing louder and fighting harder to win a chance to be heard.
Hats off to those women, don't mind if they're gone, the future belongs to them.
