The singer Katie Burke wakes up sober and Skype’s with her fellow musician Rocksteady Fred in Sweden.

Why do significantly more white’s than black’s survive Covid 19? Also, can something be done about the widespread racism within the police force?

Together with Shaka The King, the idea for the song Tell me what side I'm on was born. Shaka runs a vegan restaurant, stands on the barricade, gets his worst frustrations out as a boxing instructor and raps late at night at the toughest underground hip hop clubs in New York.

Silent Nancy plans to release two more singles next spring and the album will be released in the summer of 2021!
