In the months leading up to the last several years of shows, women and girls were interviewed about life, love, and everything in between. Those discussions were videotaped and the artists involved in each show then used that content to create original works for the SWAN events.
My original tune “Power Tools” is based on a fellow artist’s confession that sometimes she wants nice earrings as a birthday gift, and sometimes she wants power tools, darnit.
Thanks to my good friend Lauren Zurchin for playing guitar and singing harmonies.
Many thanks to Nami Ogawa for catching most of the song on video.
