Empress have been on the local Yorkshire music scene since 2009! After singing in a soul and funk band for 5 years Louise, lead singer in the band, (A big Evanescence fan) wanted to cover the best Female Rock songs and build a set that was unique and a little different!
“I’ve often been asked how I came to the name EMPRESS….the inspiration for this came from my curiosity in the mystical! “The Empress” Tarot card is one of the strongest in the pack – her symbol is VENUS who just happens to be the goddess of artists, she helps them painstakingly develop their pieces from clay to statue, from first brushstroke to masterpiece. I thought it was perfect.”
Empress play in various venues across Yorkshire region and can be found most weekends belting out the hits from Skunk Anansie, Janis Joplin, Patti Smith, Pat Benetar, Heart, Halestorm, Led Zeplin, Gun N Roses and of course Evanescence!!
