Romeo’s Daughter are one of Britain’s finest AOR mainstream rock bands fronted by Leigh Matty, recently voted Number 5 ‘Lady Rock Singer of all time’ in Classic Rock Magazine. “Alive” is a live DVD filmed at the Derby Guildhall and is packaged with a live CD. The band’s last album, “Rapture”, was released in 2012 and has been critically praised worldwide for its astounding songwriting, performance and production. The first single from the album “Bittersweet”, was in Classic Rock Magazine’s Top Songs of 2012 Chart.
 
 
The band’s pedigree is second to none, with each member having previously worked at the highest levels with artists such as: Bonnie Tyler, Whitney Houston, Roxette, Meatloaf, Tom Jones, John Parr, Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ Kevin Rowland and, Ex GoGo, Jane Wiedlin!
 
Their eponymous debut album released in 1988 was produced by ‘Mutt’ Lange and John Parr and released on the Jive label. During a promotional tour of the U.S.A the first single ‘Don’t Break My Heart’, leapt up the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. The calibre of their songs attracted many established artists; Heart covered the single ‘Wild Child’ on their 3 million selling album ‘Brigade’, achieving No. 2 on the Billboard Rock All Play chart. Eddie Money, Bonnie Tyler and the recently reformed Steps too, have had recording successes with other Romeos’ titles. Their track ‘Heaven in the Backseat’ was also the opening track for the film, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street 5’. This album has subsequently been remastered to 24 bit standard from the original source tapes and released on Rock Candy records. It includes 3 bonus live tracks, the story of the making of the album, previously unpublished photos, all spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
 
Their second studio album, ‘Delectable’ was released in 1993 on Music for Nations and was much more like a live album in its feel. It was produced and recorded by the band and Andy Reilly, and was later mixed by Steve Brown (The Cult, Manic Street Preachers and Wham). Delectable too has been remastered to the same quality and released again by Rock Candy records. It includes one bonus track, details about the making of the album, an interview with the band and additional photos spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.
 
Their 4th album, Spin, will be released in 2015 to coincide with their performance at HRH AOR 3 in March 2015.
