Today we take a trip back to 1984 to a song off the album of the same name, Metal Queen by Canadian singer Lee Aaron.
The album resulted in a multi-album contract with Attic Records which resulted in Aaron forming an 11 year song writing relationship with her guitarist, John Albani. The album spent two weeks at #69 on the RPM Canadian Album chart and Aaron toured non-stop between 1984 and 1992.
After a few projects that didn’t take off, Aaron switched to jazz but has been playing both rock and jazz shows ever since including a return performance in 2011 at the Sweden Rock Festival.
Aaron released her first all-rock album “Fire and Gasoline” in 2016, 20 years after her last hard rock/metal album. The album was self-financed on her Big Sister Records label and she has made appearances at several European shows in Germany and London to name a few. Her latest album released earlier this year “Diamond Baby Blues” showcases her rock side mixed with blues to once again prove the “Metal Queen” hasn’t skipped a beat.
