MORE Indie Invaders

Watch out for Chloe Gilligan and the new track Front Porch. It’s a piano ballad that shares the same vibe as Justin Bieber’s Lonely.

“Front Porch is about a perfect, rainy, whimsical birthday kiss I had on my twenty-second birthday. I wanted the song to really match the feeling of being whisked away in this unexpected moment. The classical guitar strumming combined with a haunting piano really set this perfect scene for a forbidden romantic moment at midnight in the pouring rain” shares Chloe.

She released her debut her EP Erase August in 2019 and was selected to play SXSW Festival. She performed at the Sundance Film Festival, and had song placements in the CW series All American. Give the song a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.

In Honor of Black History Month lets take a closer look at Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth (1797 – November 26, 1883) was an American abolitionist and women’s rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826.

She gave herself the name Sojourner Truth in 1843 after she became convinced that God had called her to leave the city and go into the countryside “testifying the hope that was in her”. Her best-known speech was delivered extemporaneously, in 1851, at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. The speech became widely known during the Civil War by the title “Ain’t I a Woman?”, a variation of the original speech re-written by someone else using a stereotypical Southern dialect, whereas Sojourner Truth was from New York and grew up speaking Dutch as her first language.

A memorial bust of Truth was unveiled in 2009 in Emancipation Hall in the U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center. She is the first African American woman to have a statue in the Capitol building. In 2014, Truth was included in Smithsonian magazine’s list of the “100 Most Significant Americans of All Time”
