Dallas Frasca and her band have been on the road taking their sophomore LP Sound Painter to the world, and they bring their series of UK shows to an end this week with a headline gig at the legendary 100 Club.
In the past few months, Frasca has played M4C In The Park in south London, rocked out in Corsica with Patti Smith and torn up the main stage at the Le Mans 24 Hour race in France – to no fewer than 250,000 souls. Not bad work.
Frasca and co. released Painter last year and have been busy introducing it to the world since, hitting the road with stops in Canada and the US. The arena show in France, where they’re signed to Verycords, last month kicked off the band’s six-week summer tour through Europe, which culminates this week – so if you haven’t been able to catch the trio yet, then now is your final chance.
Touted as “the next AC/DC”, the hard riffing trinity have toured with the likes of Aerosmith, 30 Seconds To Mars and Billy Joel already, and Frasca’s song All My Love came third out of 16,000 entries in the AAA catergory of last year’s International Songwriting Competition, judged by the likes of Basement Jaxx and Ozzy Osborne.
They have been tearing it up wherever they’ve played, whether it’s small intimate club shows or mega-stage arena gigs, and have got some pretty big fans already. Just ask Guns ‘n’ Roses six-string legend Slash, who was blown away by Frasca’s “great vocals, riffs and groove”. And let’s face it, he should know!
