In a resounding declaration of female dominance, the Women of Soul project emerges as a celestial force, commanding reverence and ushering in an era of unparalleled musical brilliance.
In a realm where the dominance of male artists often takes center stage, a seismic shift is underway. Enter the Women of Soul project, an awe-inspiring collaboration that defies expectations and redefines the very essence of musical prowess.
Brace yourselves, for the unveiling of not one, but two extraordinary singles that illuminate the sheer magnitude of their collective genius: “Lifeline” featuring the radiant Rita Satch and “I Am Enough” graced by the incomparable Candice Monique.
These soul-infused masterpieces serve as tantalizing glimpses into the forthcoming opus, ‘Feel Good,’ poised to grace our eardrums on June 2. With the exceptional Chelsea Wilson at the helm as executive producer, and the gifted Anna Laverty expertly handling production and engineering duties, this album is a sonic testament to the indomitable strength of an all-female team—a rarity, indeed, in the labyrinthine corridors of the Australian music industry.
From conception to completion, every nuance, every heartbeat of this groundbreaking endeavor has been meticulously crafted by the skilled hands and brilliant minds of these visionary women, delivering a resounding testament to their power and resilience.
Prepare to be transported on a sonic odyssey as ‘Feel Good’ presents a collective of unparalleled vocalists: Kylie Auldist, Stella Angelico, Rita Satch, Emilia Schnall, Alzzy, Chelsea Wilson, Carla Troiano, Germaine McCarthy, and the luminary Candice Monique herself. Drawing inspiration from a rich tapestry of soul and R&B genres, this audacious offering deftly navigates the hallowed realms of vintage soul, disco-infused grooves, and electrifying rhythm and blues. Brace yourself for an immersive musical experience that defies conventions and ignites the senses.
But let us not merely revel in the sonorous enchantment of this transformative album. Let us ponder the weighty significance it carries amidst the austere realities of our industry. In Australia, a meager 20% of APRA AMCOS songwriter members identify as women, while a dismal 15% of annual royalties trickle into the hands of female writers. On a global scale, less than 2% of recording producers are women. These staggering figures cast a harsh spotlight on the uphill battle faced by women in music, rendering the arrival of Women of Soul a monumental moment—a release that not only breaks barriers but radiates a resolute commitment to amplifying the voices of countless women.
Prepare yourselves for an unforgettable night of sublime musical majesty as this transcendent collective graces the hallowed stage of Melbourne’s iconic Toff In Town on Friday, June 2. Witness the confluence of extraordinary talent and unwavering conviction as they unveil this groundbreaking album, etching their names into the annals of musical history.
