Russian Red with special guest Tulsa
After a successful tour in 2008-09, Russian Red is back with her eagerly anticipated second album, “Fuerteventura.” Russian Red -- singer Lourdes Hernández -- has quickly become one of Spain's biggest artists. Starting in the small clubs of her native Madrid, she quickly moved to theaters and clubs all around the world. Hernández owns an exceptional voice and a natural ability to connect with her audience. Her first album went Gold, selling more than 40,000 copies. Her music and performances have reached places like Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, the US, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Belgium, and beyond. Her music has also permeated the worlds of film, television and advertising, featuring prominently in campaigns for such companies as Häagen Dazs. Russian Red can also be found singing a duet of "Love Me Tender" with Elvis Presley as part of the special Spanish edition of the album "Viva Elvis". Her second album, “Fuerteventura,” has just been released, with producer Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, David Byrne), to be released Spring 2011.
Tulsa is the world´s capital of petroleum but it is also the world´s capital of the lack of love and/or affection. Tha band, having as front woman Miren Iza proved with their previous album "Solo me has rozado" (Subterfuge 2007) how you can extract musical gold from the well of disillusion and discourage. Now after being nominated to the Grammy awards in 2008 with this album, they come back again to demonstrate it with their new album "Espera la Pálida", and still with a better and bigger eloquence.
