Internationally acclaimed and award nominated 7 string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF has released her 15 tracks album “I Am” worldwide, on CDBaby, Amazon, iTunes and most digital streaming sites.
The hard hitting album features several new songs, previously unreleased songs and songs from her previously digitally released EP. It also contains the bonus track “If The Dead Ones Could Talk” – which gives an indication about one of the music directions she is taking from now.
Among the new tracks on the album is her dark and heavy version of Led Zeppelin´s “Immigrant Song”, which was featured as “Track of the week” in Classic Rock Magazine last week. Her version is inspired by her great love for Norwegian Black Metal.
The video for the song was released a week ago and is the first video where she is not wearing her well known Commander uniform. Inspired by her home country, and the lyrics of the song, she decided to showcase a Norwegian designer instead. The video can be seen here:
Her song “Toxic” takes aim at the pharmaceutical industry and doctors who tend to over subscribe drugs. As the lyrics say; “there ain´t no profit in the healthy ones!”. It also features her song “L.M.A.O.” where she ridicules her haters and online trolls.
Since the summer of 2013 her focus has been on her very successful crossover to classical music, being the first guitarist to ever record guitar versions of Sarasate´s “Zigeunerweisen Op.20” and Saint Saens´”Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso,” both considered some of the most challenging pieces of music ever written for violin virtuosos. Her collaboration album with world leading classical guitarist Craig Ogden charted at #1 on Amazon.com and she was on “top 10 viral videos of the year” in both 2013 and 2014 in Guitar World Magazine. The third biggest online newspaper site in the world, The Guardian, had their Paganini Caprice 24 video on their “Top 10 Metal meets Classical” list.
