As a female singerˆsongwriter, Karen Drucker has experienced her fair share of being slighted. Impressively, she continues to remain steadfast in her dedication to the arts, and has never been deterred in her striving to be a musician, wedding singer, musical comedian, or competitive swimmer. With true artistic spirit, her motivation and inspiration had to come from within, and nothing was more inspiring to Drucker than her own femininity, which has fueled and inspired numerous albums as well as a published book.
Compiled from a selection of songs from eleven previous albums, Drucker has used the hindsight gained in her 50s to curate a collection of songs that reflect her biggest motivation, her inner power. By using her unique force and inspirations, her albums touch on a variety of difficult topics˜from aiming to aid the healing process from cancer to providing strength to battered women through music. Combined on one impactful album, each song is part of a pastiche of humorous and poignant melodies that are certain to inspire strength and action in men, and maybe men as well! The album begins with the title track, a tune fraught with luscious rhythms that refuse to shy away from the natural sensuality of the female gender, while emboldened by Drucker‚s soulful voice crooning an anthem about the power of women, all supported by lusty pianos and emboldened percussion.
While The Power of Women definitely has a celebratory feel, there are some more serious songs that touch upon somber issues. Songs like "N-O Is My New Yes" directly address the issue of abuse, but also act as a mantra for women to internalize when dealing with any struggle, whether it be men, spending, career, eating, or simply being a pushover. Despite the serious subject matter, Drucker manages to keep the tone jovial with backing chorus and trumpets reminiscent of Aretha Franklin‚s "R-E-S-P-E-C-T." The album closes with the gutsy, country-inspired anthem "Let It Shine." The boisterous beat and opening lyrics˜"I‚ll be the first on the dance floor"˜aptly reflect how a listener will feel after this series of feel-good songs praising the individual woman and qualifying her existence. With the perfect balance of wit and poignance, this album is sure to put a swagger in any woman‚s step.
