About The Riveters
Rosie & The Riveters take their name from Rosie the Riveter who was an iconic symbol of the women who worked in American factories during the Second World War. The character is credited with helping to nearly double the amount of working women in the country. Rosie & The Riveters are four fiercely talented women inspired by Rosie, the fashion and music of her time.
Kiera Dall’Osto is an Australian transplant to the cold prairies of Canada. Her voice possesses all the resonance of a vinyl recording, think Billy Holiday and Etta James. On stage Kiera has a sharpe sense of humour that doesn’t miss a beat that keeps the Riveters on their toes and laughing.
Farideh’s longstanding obsession with African American spirituals is what compelled her with the idea for Rosie and the Riveters, and thus serves as the inspiration for the music we sing. Farideh’s voice is rich, deep and seductive and she has released 3 records, toured internationally and also performs under the name Munirih Sparrow.
Alexis Normand’s voice is smooth, her nature is sweet and her colour is golden! Alexis comes from the jazz world and brings with her an impressive musical education, uncanny arrangement abilities, and considerable experience
Melissa Nygren is armed with her trade mark, classic, sweet vocals, and has been songwriting and performing, for more then a decade. Her extensive background in roots music add a touch of prairie richness and tradition to the Riveter sound.
Performance Style: The Rosie & The Riveters show consists of traditional African American spirituals, toe-tapping bluegrass numbers, contemporary folk songs, and original material. Their compelling performance hosts seductive vocal arrangements, scintillating choreography, percussion, acoustic instrumentation, inviting humor and a whole lot of charm!
Why hire Rosie & The Riveters? Together these 4 women co-create a show that is captivating, contemporary and riveting for all the senses. Their talents are a powerful combination that Rosie the Riveter would be proud to represent.
