Miss Derringer, fronted by singer and acclaimed visual artist Liz McGrath, recently returned to the studio with many long-time friends, fans and former collaborators lending a hand to help conjure up an intriguing blend of fresh, new tracks. Drummer Clem Burke and guitarist Frank Infante, both Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members who contributed to a string of Blondie hits, punk legend Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, former Social Distortion drummer Derek O’Brien, as well as guitarists Jimmy Wilsey (The Avengers/Chris Isaak) and Danny B. Harvey (The Head Cat/The Rockats) all contributed their considerable talents to the EP. Founding Miss Derringer members Morgan Slade (guitar) and Sylvain de Muizon (bass) join singer McGrath on all the tracks, and former Miss Derringer members Lightnin’ Bill Woodcock (guitar) and Cody James (drums) deliver indispensable contributions as well.
Always known for their unique ability to blend classic blues, country, rockabilly, pop, punk, goth and alternative influences, Miss Derringer’s sound was aptly described by one reviewer as “Johnny Cash meets Blondie.” And the band touches all the bases on ‘The Shadow’ EP. From the desperate, gothic feel of the opening track, “Nobody to Come,” to the dark and eerie “Return of the Shadow” (with Cheetah Chrome as the voice of the Shadow), from their haunting cover of the classic “Unchained Melody” to their aggressive, super-charged version of the Misfits’ “Die Die My Darling,” the band doesn’t miss a beat on this new EP!
