Skyfire are very pleased to announce that Doris Brendel will be supporting The Room at the Borderline, London on 10th Feb 2016.
Having returned from an extremely successful tour with Wishbone Ash in November 2015, Doris Brendel, one of the most unique female rock-singers of the last decade, will be back on the road in 2016. The daughter of famed classical pianist Alfred Brendel, her distinctive vocals were the driving force behind 1990s alt-rockers The Violet Hour, who were signed to Sony when they released their now revered, classic album 'The Fire Sermon' in 1991.
Brendel's eighth album and most recent release, 'Upside Down World' in April 2015, once again reflects her multi-faceted personality with an eclectic collection of songs popularly described as 'Progressive Pop', 'Upside Down World' spans pop, rock, prog and acoustic styles, confronting happy and sad topics with a humorous, angst-ridden style, blending them into a cocktail of sound and meaning.
Brendel's collaboration with producer and multi-instrumentalist Lee Dunham, guitarist of rock/metal band Primary Slave, continues in a live capacity, using an array of musicians to contribute to the progressive sound to complement Brendel's distinctive, husky vocals.
Having missed out on a gig in London on the last tour, the band are delighted to be playing at The Borderline in February supporting the fantastic ROOM.
