Cali Rodi Returns With New Song “God Save The Queen”
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Cali Rodi returned with a new song “God Save The Queen”.
The track will appear on her upcoming EP. Produced by Lindgren and Emily Wright.
The idea for the song came from after suffering a physical assault in broad daylight. “While putting money in a parking meter on my way into a songwriting session, I looked up and a strung-out, towering man was stumbling towards me.,” Cali Rodi told Stage Right Secrets. “Living in a big city like Los Angeles, that's a fairly normal thing, so I didn't think much of it. Suddenly, he started running towards me and calling me a bitch. A switch in my brain automatically flipped to panic mode and I started sprinting in the other direction. Before I knew it, he had me cornered. Even though I was screaming for help, I couldn't get over the fact that in broad daylight on Ventura Boulevard, no one stopped to help me.”
- She continued, “He pushed me, I felt I had no choice but to push him back with all my strength and ended up faking him out and running into a Subway where I hid behind the counter. My hands were shaking the entire day. The next day, when I arrived at my session, I called my male co-writers to escort me from the parking garage. I was still terrified to walk around alone. I explained to them what happened (also showed off my new neon pink pepper spray I attached to my keys) and decided we needed to write about it. That's when 'God Save The Queen' was born. I wanted to create a song that gave me hope and strength because I felt powerless in the moment. A modern take on the iconic Sex Pistol's classic. It's an understatement to say life is hard these days, but that doesn't mean we can't still have a little fun.”
