8 MP3 Songs
BLUES: Rhythm & Blues, BLUES: Funky Blues
The lively author, songwriter, and singer, June Marshall has created the "The Dirty Seven: Ladies Beware!" music CD to accompany her book of the same title. Her kick-butt, no-nonsense message is about keeping self-respect and boundaries in dating and mating men, so women can develop happy, long-lasting relationships.
June was born in Sao Paolo, Brazil to American parents. They moved back to the United States while she was a child. After finishing college, she went to New York to study acting and singing, along with earning a Masters in English Literature.
She then moved to Europe, where she lived in Belgium and visited the major cities of the continent. Next came her "Passage to India," where she traveled from its southernmost tip to the Himalayas. Her familiarity with diverse cultures of the world originates from these experiences and flavors her unique philosophy. It has also greatly contributed to her understanding of human nature.
Her career, so far, has included being an actress-singer, comedienne, writer, public speaker and speech writer, English teacher, and even being webmaster and systems usability engineer at AT&T.
She has appeared on television, radio, and on stage, as well as given talks and seminars on the topic of mateability, selectivity, and behavioral standards in the dating arena. She has also written numerous articles for various publications.
The Dirty Seven: Ladies Beware! wittily addresses the frustration many women feel with the kinds of men they meet on the dating scene. She sings about it in bluesy, honky-tonk songs that show self-respect rather than wound-licking self-pity. She performs with pulsating energy and heat.
Love Songs in Reverse
Her compositions are love songs in reverse to the Dirty Seven. These guys are dead-ends as mates and leave heartbreak in their wake. The words to the songs express pain and dismay, but also a kick-''em-to-the-curb attitude, that gives them grit. The upcoming "Lowdown Dirty, Lowdown Dirty Sideman Blues," describes the pathetic absurdity of the typical lines the married man uses to catch a little something on the side. "Cause You''re a YAPpie," will be about the excuses and behavior of the youthful slacker who lives off of the working female.
Husky, Silky Voice
Ms. Marshall''s husky, silky voice-with-attitude expresses many emotional colorations. In the title song, she sounds menacing as she growls the ending of the word "Beware." Undertones of smokiness and smooth vibrato lend drama to the song. Her voice is serious and humorous, soft and hard at the same time. She belts and croons, purrs and snarls, reaching the lower vocal registers with resonant ease.
One reviewer writes, "No one escapes her scathing glance." But she will include one true love song in the set to a man who expresses love through action, not words. The sweet vulnerability of, "You Know How to Love," shows that she is never a bitter cynic, just smart enough to recognize the Real Thing. If it isn''t, "You better ditch him, and make it snappy." (This song is not on the
About June''s book: The Dirty Seven: Ladies Beware!
Most currently available books on relationships concentrate on how the woman can catch, please, or understand a man. They focus on mistakes women may make or on how to increase sexual pleasure for both parties. Some are about building self-esteem so a woman will be a better partner. A few books are on judging compatibility with potential mates or astrological matches. With the Dirty Seven, there is no compatibility and no potential. Ladies don''t even have to ask, "Will we be a good fit?" The answer is "no." They can easily recognize, with June''s guidance, these Dirty Seven types, enabling women to steer clear of them and concentrate on someone with a future.
Bold and blunt humor make this ultimately very serious guide a fast read. It has occasioned some deep self-examination among men as well. One remarked, "This is the book Steven Covey might write if he were Roseanne Barr." Her all-too-true stories will make you laugh. Even if you have not experienced one of these guys, you know at least one person who has. The Dirty Seven are very funny, unless your life is tied up with one of them.
