Doris Brendel, a singer of rare talent and pedigree, released her latest band album, Mass Hysteria, in September 2020 on Sky-rocket Records recorded in conjunction with producer and multi-instrumentalist Lee Dunham. The daughter of famed classical pianist Alfred Brendel, her distinctive vocals were the driving force behind 1990s alt-rockers The Violet Hour, who were signed to Sony when they released their now revered, classic album ‘The Fire Sermon’ in 1991. Brendel has worked with some notable people over the years, including Alvin Lee, Gary Moore, Sam Brown, Joe Brown, Herbie Flowers, and has toured extensively with Marillion as well as Nils Lofgren, John Farnham and Steve Marriott. She was also offered to sing with Pink Floyd on the Great Gig in the Sky tour, which she had to turn down due to already contracted tour commitments. Over the last few years she has completed several European tours - both with Wishbone Ash and also with Marillion’s Fish, as well as singing backing vocals for him live and on Fish’s acclaimed double-album ‘Weltschmerz’.
