Our song ‘Julian’ which happened to be the first song we wrote together back at Dartington College of Arts, has stuck the right chord with Tom Robinson.Each song on the album gives some thought to the question of what it means to be a woman in the 21st Century.Expect to hear a wide range of musical insights which question this theme, ranging from the personal to the political: the bitter sweet to the lyrical.This album is free to download and features ‘A Message from Dorothy from the Other Side’ by Gertrude as well as a variety of other artists -each with their own unique take on the subject at hand. Check out some of the reviews over at the gertgossip blog A track from Gertrude’s latest album called Proabtionary Citizen is set to appear on a new compilation called ‘Voices of Resistance’.The compilation album features a wide variety of artists including Rot Jaws, Ded Prez and Renu Hossain.
