Having stunned America (including Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, Metallica's Jason
Newsted and Guns n' Roses' Gilby Clarke) and performed with likes of Aerosmith and Velvet Revolver, Dilana is heading to Britain. Stopping off at Runcorn's Doghouse on October 9.
The South African Harley-riding rock vixen belies her diminutive stature with an iron-clad will, a gargantuan voice and a spirit of weapons-grade defiance. Not surprisingly, the Los Angeles based singer's music is a fearless collision of Velvet Revolver-style gutter-punk swagger and surging stadium pop.”
The singer and guitarist can cite a string of high profile rock legends as fans from Queen's Brian May to Motley Crue's Mick Mars and Tommy Lee. No Doubt drummer Adrian Young was so blown away he signed up to play on Dilana's forthcoming album 'Darklight'.
The first taster of 'Darklight' is the three minute rock tornado of 'My Drug', a song that is rich with the trademark take-no-prisoners guitar and vocal style of this leather-lunged, ultra charismatic South African musician. The single 'My Drug' is released on 13 October.
