This amazing project exposes the unknown history of black women in rock and celebrates their contribution to rock music in the only way they know, Nice & Rough. Currently in production. Slated for completion in 2012.

Nice and Rough. 

YES.

From my article:

Hell yeah, you guys! I got some concrete things done for my Rockstar  career this month! After writhing around on the floor moaning, “Woe is  me, the tortured artist!” last month, I was able to stock up the energy  to really get to work! I joined a couple of professional music industry  organizations and made some of my newest songs mine, legally. I played a  gig where I inspired a new musician and played a couple of my new songs  out for the first time! I even made a little rough demo/sample  recording of one of my newest songs called “Cinder Girl,” which will be  featured on my upcoming album, “The Awesomest of Them All!”

I really tumblr’d it up in this article. There are pictures, an associated youtube video and even a song! Check it out and give it a Facebook like if you’re into that sorta thing. <3
