New York’s cult figure, sci-fi icon and critically acclaimed songstress of the international scene, Jane Badler is set to take her artistry and theatricality to a whole new level with a new line up of musicians and an innovative new show, set to be unveiled at the famous Spiegeltent at The Arts Centre in Melbourne on Thursday March 21.

 

 

 

Combining neo-gothic electro with Badler’s sultry yet powerful vocals, the European tent of mirrors is the perfect setting for Badler to reveal some of her new songs off her forthcoming album, Diamond Crimson Blood, alongside her vast back catalogue of tunes taken from her albums The Devil Has My Back (2008) and Tears Again (2011).

 

Badler has worked with many celebrated industry professionals on the new release, including ARIA nominee Matt Thomas (The Mavis’s, The Blow Waves), electro punk producer Byron St John (Ghetto Pussy, Video Video), ARIA winning engineer/producer Simon Polinski, music director/keyboardist Colin Berwick (from Scottish legends Big Country), guitarist John Justin (Thunderwings) and acclaimed Australian drummer Mark Stanley.  Alongside her notable band, Badler will take her audience on a journey dealing with themes of seduction, obsession, betrayal, the duplicity of life and the danger of loving.

 

 

 

Badler has enjoyed a long and rewarding career in the arts, having played major roles in American daytime soap operas One Life to Live,The Doctors, primetime series Murder, She Wrote, as well as her best-known role as the Lizard queen, Diana in the hugely successful sci-fi series, ‘V’.   After starring in the global hit series Mission Impossible, Badler moved to Australia to focus on her family, and has since introduced herself to a local audience through guest appearances in iconic Australian televison shows Neighbours, Blue Heelers, Offspring and The Man From Snowy River.  Her love of singing and performing also helped forge an enviable career in cabaret, which saw her take to the stage to perform in Archy & Mehitabel, The Great Gatsby, Sextet, The Singing Forest, Big Hair in America, Rebecca, and also her one-woman show Shakin’ the Blues Away.

 

 

 

Badler will be focusing on her own music in 2013, and will unveil her most anticipated album to date, Diamond Crimson Blood set for a mid-year release. The self-penned album will serve up a neo-gothic electro cabaret of dark songs.
