How we spent the pandemic :  staying healthy, collaborating on new material and sending new music out into the virtual world

Meeting just about every week over zoom, and participating the online RealWomenRealSongs collective Lisa, Gina and Beth wrote a ton of songs.

Here is a taste of some of the stuff that got made…

From the Roots Music Report

There is a distinct strength in women’s music and they tap into it brilliantly. Women with wide ranging influences…the Malvinas are serious and playful, often in the same song…The title cut was written by the trio’s namesake, Malvina Reynolds, in 1964. It is as poignant today as it was then with these lyrics: “God bless the truth that fights toward the sun.”  One of the most fully realized folk albums of the first half of the year.
