Lita Ford: A British born rocker who grew up on the streets of L.A., Lita Ford is considered one of the most important female representatives of the rock genre. Being a founding member of the Runaways, one of the first girl groups who unexpectedly broke down barriers in the punk era as well as the male-dominated world of rock music, causing a stir with their six rebellious releases. Following the demise of the Runaways, LITA FORD concentrated on her own career and now looks back on many memorable hits including: the chart topping duet with Ozzy Osbourne Close Your Eyes Forever, What Do You Know About Love, Shot Of Poison, Larger Than Life and Kiss Me Deadly. With the release of Living Like a Runaway, expect many more songs to be added to the list of hits.
Vixen was founded in St Paul, MN by guitarist Jan Kuehnemund. Driven by rock star dreams, like so many before her, Kuehnemund packed up her group and headed for Hollywood. Kuehnemund soon re-tooled the lineup to include vocalist Janet Gardner, drummer, Roxy Petrucci, and bassist Share Pedersen Ross. Vixen quickly built their reputation playing the infamous Sunset Strip and signed a major label deal with EMI. Vixen’s first hit single, “Edge of a Broken Heart” penned by Richard Marx and Fee Waybill (The Tubes) blasted onto the Billboard charts fueled by heavy video rotation on MTV. Their self-titled freshmen LP garnered two more knee droppers with “Cryin’” and “Love made Me” both charting on the Billboard hot 100 top 40. It was the group’s live performances opening for the Scorpions, Ozzy and Bon Jovi that established Vixen as a premiere rock act to be taken seriously.
Dark Star Records Artist Bloody Mary, the all girl teenage rock band is the newest group of Hard Rock Females to Explode onto the Scene. In just this past year this wild bunch of teenage vixens have played major music events like the Indianapolis Metal Fest, picked up endorsements, performed at NAMM in Anaheim California, made a cameo appearance in the movie Jezebeth 2 Hour of the Gun, performed on the Mancow Show in Chicago, and Much More!
