Guitarist Brittany Denaro states that Vixen have recorded new single and acoustic version of a classic hit
New Vixen guitarist Brittany Denaro recently was interviewed by Guitar World and spoke about Vixen’s current projects.
Denaro stated: “We’ve just recorded a live album from a show we did this past summer in Chicago. We’ve been working with Michael Wagener, who mixed Metallica’s Master of Puppets, and has a really cool studio in Nashville. We’ve also recorded a new single as well as an acoustic version of one of the classic hits. It has a bit of a different vibe than the original, but it came together pretty spontaneously as we were jamming on it in the studio.”
In terms of how she ended up joining Vixen, Denaro stated: “I was playing with an all-female Guns ‘N Roses tribute band at a pre-party for The Monsters of Rock Cruise. Coincidentally, the person who put it on also happened to be Vixen’s manager. He had known that there was some tension in the band and that they were looking for another guitar player.
After the show, he spoke to the girls and told them he thought I’d be a perfect fit. Ironically, around the same time Janet, Share and Roxy had been asking around and my name kept popping up, so they followed up. It was that simple.”
In terms of what it was like getting together with the other Vixen members for the first time, Denaro stated: “I was a bit nervous. Growing up, I had been in all-girl bands but there weren’t many of them to really look up to. I remember the first time I got together with them was without Janet. It was just the music and that took a little bit of the pressure off. Because everyone lived all over the country, the first time I actually met Janet was the night before we did a show together!”
