"Last Mistress"

The atmosphere in the Revolver band room was at a fever pitch as the crowd awaited the entrance of Last Mistress for their Blood, Sweat & Fears Album launch. Last Mistress, fresh off the plane from writing songs in the US … expectations were high.
As they built into their opening number, the crowd roared and lead singer Brihony Dawson – dressed to kill in an amazing tailor made, screw-covered marine jacket, shorts, biker boots and a pilot’s cap – made her grand entrance down the stairs from the sound booth at the back of the room, through the crowd and onto the stage!
Tearing into their first song, it was clear that this 5 piece were taking no prisoners. With her gravelly voice drawing comparisons to Pat Benatar and Chrissy Amphlett and the attitude to match, Dawson has the mostly female crowd eating out of the palm of her hands, both of which she was happy to share around high-fiving the crowd throughout the set.
A well-placed “podium” in the middle of the room provided the perfect platform for Dawson to get up close and personal on several occasions with the crowd. She then brought the high energy down for the emotionally charged acoustic number “Daddy’s Little Girl”, a song she wrote in memory of her father. The song showcasing her amazing voice bringing her emotion to life and members of the crowd to tears.
Donning the bandana that she graces the cover of the band’s album with (and also available for sale at the merch stand for the diehard fans), Dawson is rejoined by the rest of the band for high energy finish to the show.

Last Mistress is a band not to be missed and a force to be reckoned with on the live music stage, and the world.

Building the intensity and expectation in the room, the band’s members (Ale Adams – Drums, Ben Webster – Rhythm Guitar, Ken Hennessy – Bass and Bryan Murphy – Lead Guitar) made their way to the stage one at a time. - Get Shot Magazine

Bio

Mistress: (Noun) A woman in a position of authority and control

Rocking front woman and songwriter, Brihony Dawson, exhibits a presence on stage similar to that of the late and great, Chrissy Amphlett, and there is no doubt about what she has to offer. It’s her gravelly voice, feisty attitude and dirty base lines that make her come alive when she stands behind a microphone to command an audience.

‘Once in a long time, an artist arrives on the scene with a real buzz - Someone who is a true original with talent, beauty and a unique style which separates from all others. BRIHONY DAWSON rocks!’ -Peter Rafelson, award-winning music producer.

Joining her on stage is lead guitarist Bryan Murphy, rhythm guitarist Ben Webster, bassist Ken Hennessy and Ale Adams on drums.

Having just finished recording their debut album ‘Blood, Sweat & Fears’, Last Mistress are ready to set the Australian and international music scenes alight.

Travelling regularly between Australia and LA to work on their tracks, the band is mixing it with some of the best, including Grammy-Award winning producer, Jeff Bova, who has worked with many successful artists like Michael Jackson, Blondie and Billy Joel. Rock legend Gina Schock has also taken a shine to the band collaborating on ‘Another Song’ which features on the new album. Last Mistress certainly has international eyes and ears listening and watching to see where they are headed, and they’re jumping on board.

So, what sets Last Mistress apart from every other band you’ve seen? Attend a show and they will transport you back to a time when rock was thriving – the 80’s. Inspired by Def Leopard, Aerosmith and Guns n Roses their songs such as ‘Rock n Roll’ and ‘The Fighter’ will jump off the stage, into your ears and give you that rock and roll hard on you’ve been pining for since you threw out your last pair of acid wash jeans.

And Brihony is in control of it all...
