MJ Territo
Ladies Day
Jolly Molly Records
2017

Vocalist Mj Territo celebrates all things women on her ambitious and overdue Ladies Day. Territo noted the number of compositions that she loved were written by women. So, taking that fact and assembling an all-women's band, Territo creates the trifecta of celebration. The ...
