Josephin Shlomit Madden (writer and singer of her old bands JO and the MFers and Sonic Bomb) combines a booming mix of arena rock (like ACDC, Guns and Roses, Rolling Stones, The Boss) with infectious 70’s-80’s Punk (such as Cock Sparrer, Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Clash) with soul influences (Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Howling Wolf). That big stage Rock meets ANTHEM Punk with soul influences sound is something new and exciting.
It is explosive, heartfelt, impossibly infectious and EMPOWERING.
