STARK's Lani Ford to play solo acoustic tour in the UK

Posted on October 24, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NEW YORK CITY (October 25, 2009) – STARK’S LANI FORD RETURNS TO THE UK TO PLAY SOLO ACOUSTIC TOUR Lani Ford of the New York City hard rock trio, STARK, will return to the UK November 10-20, 2009 to play several acoustic shows with Sylvie T and her band Lilith’s Army with several gigs in Southern England and London, including a return to the legendary Hope & Anchor. When STARK played in the UK in March 2008, while stopping for petrol on the highway between Leeds and London, they met their mirror image in the female-fronted hard rock trio Lilith’s Army. Sylvie T and Lani Ford became fast friends and STARK hosted Sylvie solo acoustic last April in NYC. Now, Lilith’s Army returns the favor and it should be fun as usual as the energy between these two lasses is undeniable and has already culminated in one collaboration between the singer/songwriters so far…they hope to have more after this experience. Across the pond, STARK played October 2, 2009 for GNYC-TV’s M.E.A.N.Y.Fest in New York City with London Egg, The Grip Weeds, and Frank Sidebottom at The Studio at Webster Hall as part of a Little Steven’s Underground Garage and Wicked Cool Records showcase. STARK’s Joe Hogan and Lani Ford returned from Nashville in August where the two played seven acoustic duo showcases as part of the Indiegrrl in the Arts Conference and Showcase. Lani will guest host on the radio show Rew & Who December 23rd. In the summer of 2009, STARK also played the Girls Rock and Girls Rule Showcase at Hank's Saloon in Brooklyn, New York and Make Music New York for the 3rd year in a row. This year, the whole band was featured on Punk Island at Governor’s Island during a day of free music throughout the whole city. Lani Ford, a multi ASCAP Plus award winner and Daisy Rock Guitars endorsed artist, was a featured Triple R Girl for June on www.rockandrollreport.com. STARK’s music video for the song “OH NO!” (directed by Joe Covino of East Village Studios and shot in Coney Island, New York and at Arlene’s Grocery in NYC) was featured at The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival as well as the Royal Flush Film Festival, both in New York City in October 2009. STARK’s sophomore CD Put It To Your Head has been receiving great press and radio all over the world since it’s release in January 2008. STARK will release a third album of nine songs, Race To The Floor, this winter. Check out the official website www.starknyc.com or www.myspace.com/stark.
