We think Redhook is an awesome band and love recent single Say!
Emmy Mack, Redhook‘s vocalist, said: “When I was first starting out, I was told in no uncertain terms that I had a ‘use-by date’, I was pressured to dumb down my ‘image’ and conform to a more palatable ‘female rock artist’ stereotype; and I was repeatedly made to feel like my opinion didn’t matter when it came to my own music and career. And even though it does feel like things are starting to shift in a more positive direction, with the #metoo movement and now this Raising Their Voices report helping to bring these issues out of the shadows, we clearly still have a long way to go.
“I hope my little trauma dump on ‘‘SAY’ helps empower people who’ve copped similar bullshit in any aspect of life. My vision for the song is to be a loud and impetuous ‘fuck you’ to anyone who’s ever tried to make anyone else in this world feel voiceless or small.”
