Norwegian 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter “The Commander-In-Chief” has confirmed that she is taking her show to Norway for the first time, supporting Norwegian Metal legends TNT on two of their 30th anniversary shows; November 16th, at Garage in Bergen, and November 17th at Rockefeller in Oslo.
The Chief is very excited and honored to support TNT, a band that has such an important place in the history of Norwegian Metal/Hard Rock. http://rockefeller.no/rf171112.html
After living abroad most of her life, she is extremely happy about returning to the city where she was born, Bergen.
She will be supported on stage by AxeWound drummer Jason Bowld, who played drums on her debut EP “Evolution” and her bassist Toshi Ogawa, who played with Jason in Slaves to Gravity. She also brings sound engineer Mani Hammond, who has worked with her since April this year.
Her sensational performance at Bloodstock Open Air festival in August this year (headlined by Alice Cooper and Machine Head) was widely praised by reviewers and fans, with one reviewer saying “The Commander-in-Chief was a pure boost of guitar shredding force that swept through the arena and had the whole Sophie tent rocking” (nottinghamlive.co.uk).
In September she was featured as “1 of 10 Modern Guitar Gods” in Metal Hammer UK, alongside Alexi Laiho and Tosin Abasi.
She has been confirmed for Metal Hammer’s own festival, Hammer Fest, in March 2013 and on December 15th she will support Lawnmower Deth at Garage in London.
Since her Bloodstock performance she started to work with booking agent Ben Hylands, IIA Touring. More dates will be announced soon.
