7" SINGLE NOW SOLD OUT: sistahpunkrecords.bandcamp.com/album/crooked-room-7

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a long wait after their first release, Sistah Punk EP, which was released on Tuff Enuff Records, Big Joanie will release their single Crooked Room on their newly set up label Sistah Punk Records.

Crooked Room wouldn't exist without the help of our fans who helped us get this out into the world.

The song Crooked Room was inspired by a talk Melissa Harris Perry gave where she compared the way black women have to negotiate our racist, sexist, classist, homophobic society while maintaining a sense of self as trying to find your vertical in a crooked room.

The song is about how difficult it is for black women to find confidence in themselves and exist in a world that hates and tells them so on every advert, TV show or magazine.

The single includes Big Joanie's songs Crooked Room, Baby Rust, sung by bassist Kiera, and our cover of TLC’s No Scrubs.
