British rock group Romeo’s Daughter are live at The Flowerpot in Derby this week.
The band have released a new album and the new songs received an incredible reception at HRH this year and during their May tour last year.
Lead singer Leigh Matty, was voted number five lady rock singer of all time in Classic Rock Magazine and their single Bittersweet was in their top songs of 2012′ chart.
The band’s pedigree is second to none, with each member having previously worked at the highest levels with artists such as Bonnie Tyler, Whitney Houston, Roxette, Meatloaf, Tom Jones, John Parr, Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ Kevin Rowland and, Ex GoGo, Jane Wiedlin.
From the release of their debut Album in 1988, produced in part by the infamous Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange, it was surely to be only a matter of time before Romeo’s Daughter hit the headlines.
During a whirlwind tour of the USA, their single Don’t Break My Heart leapt up the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.
The calibre of their songs attracted many established artists.
Heart covered the single Wild Child on their multi-million selling album Brigade, achieving number two on the Billboard Rock All Play chart.
Eddie Money, Bonnie Tyler and the recently reformed Steps have also had recording successes with other Romeos’ titles.
Their track Heaven in the Backseat was the also the opener for the film, Nightmare on Elm Street 5.
The second album, Delectable, was more like a live album and was produced by the band and Andy Reilly, and was later mixed by Steve Brown, who had previously worked with The Cult, Manic Street Preachers and Wham!.
Twenty years down the line, the same great response inspired them to re-form after a magnificent reception at the 2009 Firefest in Nottingham.
Guitarist Craig Joiner needed no encouragement, having already started to pen new Romeo’s Daughter songs.
And, after much hard graft from each band member, Rapture was recorded.
It captures all of Romeos Daughters’ style and verve with a little bit more besides, all of which will be seen at their Flowerpot gig on Thursday, April 28.
Doors open at 8pm and entry is £12. Tickets are also available from The Flowerpot & RAW Promotions at www.rawpromo.co.uk
