Tania Kikidi belongs to Greece’s best female voices of the last 15 years. She made her recording debut with “Disi Anatoli” in 2007 and now she is releasing her new effort. “Rock & Roll Paradise” is a stunning hard rock album, with a lot of blues, southern, AOR and metal elements, and a great protagonist – Tania! Her warm, beautiful, rockin’ voice will take you by surprise and Tania rises like a rock n’ roll queen, taking her seat on the throne! Yes, this new record sounds like a hard rock explosion, a musical blast, which will leave you wanting more and more. Apart from Tania’s incredible, soulful singing, the second leading role is played by guitarist/composer/producer Stavros Papadopoulos – his guitar work is amazing and is like the dark night sky, where Tania’s star is shining! The production gives a solid sound, the rhythm section is groovy and Tania proves to be a musical persona, who knows how to rock and how to roll! “Rock & Roll Paradise” consists of twelve consummate hard rock tracks, which will send you to … rock n’ roll heaven – just taste “Daughter of the Wind”, “Feel My Soul Rockin’”, “Queen Rider” and “Save Me” and you will understand what I am talking about! Tania Kikidi chose to show her rock n’ roll side and she can experience now a great triumph. This album is a true rock n’ roll paradise and Tania is the arch angel! Just follow her call and let her do the rest!
