The latest single from Andrea Ramolo is another example of an anthemic ballad full of big emotions. ‘Free‘ is a song of the strength of sisterhood, powerful together. Andrea Ramolo explained the background to the song which was written with Kinnie Starr, and Hill Kourkoutis. “Initially, we came together as 3 strong and supportive women who thought we would write and sing about just that… about coming together as women and lifting each other up and supporting one another in this sisterhood. But we were moved and inspired to lift up and support more than just one another. The song session evolved from the place of the woman’s struggle to really coming together and using our voices to sing for change. Not only for women in this patriarchal world but for everyone who fights for freedom and doesn’t have it. The song emerged as a true folk song at heart, shining a light on society and exploring the falsity of freedom that only seems to exist for a few. We want to believe in the power of music and the power of coming together for change. “We can’t be free ‘cuz we’re not all free.”
