The duo of award-winning activist musicians Pat Humphries & Sandy O is inspiring, gutsy and rockin’! Their third CD, Revolutions per Minute, is an electrifying soundscape of rousing and soulful songs of social conscience from intimate acoustic to full-on funk.
Smart, funny, informative - like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars - emma’s revolution motivates and inspires, brings people to tears and back to laughter. Their music has been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near.
Their songs "Peace, Salaam, Shalom" and "Keep on Moving Forward" are sung around the world, their music featured on NPR's "All Things Considered" and Pacifica Radio's "Democracy Now." emma’s revolution has performed at thousands of events around the world using the power of music to promote peace and justice, women's, LGBT, human rights, labor and environmental issues. It's a pleasure to welcome them back to The Step to introduce this exceptional album!
