Commander In Chief UK Tour

After releasing her debut EP Evolution, produced by legendary engineer/ producer Sterling Winfield (Pantera, Hatebreed, Hellyeah), back in February 2012, Commander In Chief is finally coming to the UK to play a shows around the country throughout the summer.

Winfield says about Commander In Chief: "I am always looking for something new and different to work on, but I have to say that when the unique talents of "The Commander In Chief" crossed my desk a few months ago, I was blown away! This was definitely new and different!  In my twenty plus years as a producer and engineer I can honestly say that I have never seen or heard anything like what she has to offer. Killer guitar driven progressive hard rock, along with an unbelievable over the top vocal style, with just enough pop added so that it can be accessible to all".

With the start of her Myspace page in June 2008, Commander in Chief got her first diehard fans with the Demo version of her song "Battle for the Mind" (recorded with Grammy nominated producer Paul Richmond). She also made an animated music video and artwork for the song. 

In December 2008/January 2009 she recorded her first Demo EP "State of the Union 2009" which gave her the first radio plays on independent rock and metal radios. It also got her the first great reviews from radio DJs, with one saying "this is the music this decade has long been waiting for!" (Mike Mitchell, bcb Radio). 

During a stay in Los Angeles she recorded the 6 song Demo "Battle for the Mind". It received glowing reviews from numerous radio owners/DJs around the world and online magazines, with Metalbuzz.net calling it one of the best releases in 2010. Despite the great reviews she decided to not release the Demo EP since she was not satisfied with the production and mix. A limited number was again available for her fans and they sold out. Some of the songs were streamed on her sites and she was number 5 on Reverbnations Metal Chart for Los Angeles, as the only unsigned artist (after Slayer, etc) in July 2010.

From 2010 she has taken lessons with 7 string guitar virtuoso Ramon Ortiz (Puya, Ankla) who is her guitar mentor. She credits him with her remarkable and fast progress as a lead guitarist. Her technical and challenging riffs as a rhythm guitarist is one of her trademarks, in addition to her innovative, heavy and catchy songwriting skills. 
The CIC writes songs about current issues in society. She has a global perspective, having lived in many countries, speaking four languages.
