Introduction to the series
Welcome to a new series on Proudly dedicated to showcasing the amazing array of talented LGBTQ+ artists in the music industry today.
Each article we will be sharing a new singer who has reached out to us who we feel our readers will relate to and will hopefully love their music.
Music as a whole can be subjective and is the most diverse artistry in the world. So we are going to bring you a variety of different artists from all different backgrounds, music genres and stories.
Our third music artist is the remarkable indie rocker that is Miss Christine who will be talking with Proudly all about their new song with a powerful political message for the current state of society.
Miss Christine’s New Song Urges Change in the Streets and at the Ballot Box.
Miss Christine doesn’t hold anything back in their newest release, “Truth in Song”. Written by Christine Moad, the bassist and vocalist of the Iowa based band, the song is a rock anthem for this moment — a call to action for all of us to stand up and fight back.
Opening with a catchy bass line and blunt lyrics, Moad shares an urgent message with their listeners: “We’re running out of time.” With raw emotion, Moad sings on the topics of racial justice, climate change, transgender rights, and healthcare.
Driving guitars and a strong vocal melody give energy and spirit to this ambitious R&B-inspired single.
What inspired “Truth in Song”
– Christine Mood
“At the beginning of 2020, I worked as a Field Organizer in Iowa and New Hampshire on the Bernie 2020 campaign. Being unable to tour because of the pandemic has given me a lot of time to reflect on my experiences as a musician and an activist. All of us have so much more power than we realise as individuals and it’s time for all of us to fight for social, economic, and racial justice within our communities,”
In order to bring “Truth in Song” to life, Miss Christine partnered with Brett Ryan Stewart of Wirebird Productions. All musicians involved — Los Angeles-based drummer Jazz Robertson and Nashville-based guitarist Ellen Angelico and organist John Pahmer — recorded safely from their homes. Moad’s piano playing was recorded at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree, Iowa.
The original cover artwork is by Sabrina E. Dorsainvil of Boston. This single was created entirely in quarantine.
“Truth in Song” follows Miss Christine’s 2019 debut album, “Conversion“. Conversion is a collection of indie rock, new wave, blues, and soul-influenced songs about gender, personal strength, relationships, and politics. Its release caught love from Iowa Public Radio, V13 Media, Vents Magazine, and Celeb Mix.
