Product Notes

Doris Brendel, one of the most unique female rock-singers of the last decade, is releasing her 8th album, 'Upside Down World', on Sky-Rocket Recordings on 20th April 2015. 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. After the highly acclaimed album 'Not Utopia' which was released in 2012, Brendel forges ahead with the next chapter, once again reflecting 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. Once again Brendel has collaborated with producer and multi-instrumentalist Lee Dunham, guitarist of rock/metal band Primary Slave, this time using an array of musicians to contribute to the progressive sound while still incorporating Brendel's distinctive, husky vocals. 'Upside Down World' is like diving into an assorted musical chocolate box. Whatever your tastes there will be something here you love, along with a chance to try some new flavours. Original combinations and high quality ingredients that will leave you wanting more of Brendel & Dunham. Brendel has worked with some notable people over the years, including Alvin Lee, Gary Moore, Sam Brown, Joe Brown, Herbie Flowers, and has toured extensively with Marillion as well as Nils Lofgren, John Farnham and Steve Marriott. She was also offered to sing with Pink Floyd on the Great Gig in the Sky tour, which she had to turn down due to already contracted tour commitments. This album is available on CD, and for the first time on a limited edition vinyl as well. CD and vinyl feature beautiful and atmospheric link tracks not available in download format, as well as showing off the stunning artwork, with the cover designed by surrealist Igor Morski. There is also a special 'chocolate box' insert.
