Bio

According to music critic Jeff Jenkins, Fiona Lee Maynard "is one of Melbourne's greatest rock chicks!" The formidable female rocker frontwoman for Have A Nice Day and In Vivo. Her new EP 'Stiletto Survival (Part 1)is "delightfully dark, filled with melodrama and menace. It's like the soundtrack to a late-night movie. Call it pop-noir if you want." Infused with swooping violin, scorching, gun-fight guitars, sneaking, walking basslines and bowed double bass parts...it is reminiscient of Sergio Leone cinemascapes, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly and "the highlight is Fiona's evocative voice. She could sing the phone book and make it sound sexy or scary." Stiletto Survival (Part 1) is the first half of an album, and is available to purchase via CD Baby.com as a physical CD or for download. The songs of Stiletto Survival (Part 1)are also available for dowload through iTunes. The Stiletto Survival band features Violin: Emma Rodda, Guitar: James Lomas, Drums: Jim Moody, Double Bass & Bass: Reave Maloney, Backing Vocals: Jessica Young & Alana Thompson Fiona Lee Maynard & The Stiletto Survival Band will launch the new CD on Sunday 6th March at Caravan Music Club with special guests Ron S Peno & The Superstitions.
