“What do you get when you put a bunch of kick-a$ rock chicks together with a sense of purpose? You get a better world –or at the very least good step towards one—with one great soundtrack” — Stephen Bailey, StephenBailey.com.
“Bringing back some much needed curves into everyone’s music scene is G-spot’s female front woman, Gail Silverman.
