PROTEST, A REVOLUTIONARY ROCK OPUS pays tribute to the Women Activists that have made a substantial impact on their communities, politics, and the world! Together, these famous protesters ride the resurrected Freedom Bus to a variety of decades re-experiencing each Protest where they begin to create conversations to help understand one another and begin healing between races, generations, and the reason why we must protest for change.
The exciting NEW original Rock compositions in PROTEST transcend the decades. The songs were created for Protests ranging from the Civil Rights era to Black Lives Matter, Climate Change, Gun Violence, Voting rights and suppression, Women’s rights, Immigrant rights, and War. The inspiration for PROTEST came to fruition in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the upheaval in the Twin Cities that followed. The Covid 19 pandemic left Artists with free time, unemployed, and the urge to help in whatever way they could. Several Artists (composers, lyricists, producers) signed on to help create these exciting new songs. PROTEST a Revolutionary Rock Opus was developed to not only give employment to artists, writers, composers, and lyricists in this time of COVID-19 but to give them an outlet to inspire change in our society through their music!
