7string guitarist, singer, songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF returns to heavy metal with the upcoming release of her album “I Am”. She has successfully focused on classical crossover music for more than two years and her collaboration with world leading classical guitarist Craig Ogden charted at #1 on Amazon.com. One of their videos was on both “top 10 viral videos of 2014” in Guitar World and on “top 10 metal meets classical” in The Guardian.
The Chief will release her new album “I Am” on April 21st. Among the 15 songs on the album is her dark, heavy version of Led Zeppelin´s “Immigrant Song” and her own song “Toxic” – a slap-in-the-face to the pharmaceutical industry. “Toxic” also features a guest appearance by her fellow Ibanez and Laney artist, Stephen Platt, who plays the first guitar solo and bass in the song.
The album features both new and old songs, including a previously unreleased song from her cooperation with legendary Pantera producer Sterling Winfield; “L.M.A.O.” It also features the re-mixed versions of her song “Dropout” and her version of “Paranoid”, which have never been for sale on physical CDs before.
It also features the bonus track “If the Dead ones could Talk” which is a preview of where she is heading for the next album after “I Am”. The video for “Immigrant Song” will be unleashed shortly.
