If you are a rock music fan located in Nottingham in the U.K. or Joliet in the U.S., you are in luck – the Nordic Queen of melodic rock, Martina Edoff, is confirmed for two shows in October:
Sunday, October 23rd 2016.
Rockingham Festival
Nottingham Trent University
1:00 pm SET TIME
Saturday, October 29th, 2016.
Rock N Skull 2016 Melodic Rock Fest
The Tree
22 West Cass Street, Joliet, IL
And joining Martina on stage for these performances will be Chris Buckley – Bass (Martina, H.E.A.T sound eng.), Jona Tee – Keyboards (Martina, H.E.A.T), Crash – Drums (Martina, H.E.A.T), and Dave Dalon – Guitar (Ex H.E.A.T). “We were in the U.K. in April and we loved it,” says Martina. “The people made us feel so welcome. So I’m really looking forward to go back. This time to the festival Rockingham which I’ve heard is one of the best. Going back to the U.S. feels so good. It’s a year ago since we toured North America and that’s a memory for life. I’ve never been to Chicago before so when the opportunity to join the Rock n Skull festival came up I most definitely looking forward to be a part of that. I’m thrilled!!!”
The Swedish singer’s latest release, ‘Unity,’ was issued in October of 2015, and was supported with dates in North America, Argentina (as direct support to Tarja Turunen), Europe (special guest for the Winery Dogs), and UK dates, and has also shared the stage with the likes of Epica, Eluveitie, and the Agonist.
The first single from ‘Unity’ is “The World Has Gone Mad,” which has been mixed by multiple Grammy award winning engineer and mixer, Justin Niebank, who in 2010 won a Grammy for Album of the Year for Taylor Swift’s close to 9 million copies selling album ‘Fearless,’ and also has worked with Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill.
‘Unity’ has been drawing rave reviews from the rock press. Case in point, Classic Rock Magazine gave it an 8 out 10 review, saying, “This is the unmistakable sound of a singer raising her game,” while Melodic-Rock praised, “Wow! That’s really all I can say. Wow! Martina sings with attitude and conviction. The musical performances on this album is faultless – to speak mildly. Also, the production here is top-notch, this records sounds like a million bucks!” Melodic Music Reviews also was a big supporter of the album, giving it a 4.5 star rating out of 5, and stating, “This is an outstanding record with nary a bad track and I highly recommend it for fans of female fronted melodic rock in a heavier vein of bands like Dante Fox. Do yourself a huge favor and pick this one up, you will not be disappointed.”
Come later this October, Nottingham and Joliet will get the opportunity to hail Martina Edoff!
