She Said: Local Heroes Go Wild On The Prairie

Brighton favourites She Said! return to Komedia with yet more alt-country noir, rock-a-billy moments, gongs, and the odd explosion!
She Said!: Get You All Of A Shiver!

Like Nick Cave and Johnny Cash riding wild horses at high speed across the prairie, She Said!'s music is seemingly untainted by modern music and yet totally contemporary, with intense vocals that will send shivers down your spine.

Singer Dominque Noiret, with help from Long Tall Texan and Hotknives star Marc Carew on double bass, Matt Windler on guitar and Mike Kelly on drums, invites you to join her for an evening on the darkside.


'Singer Dominique Noiret possesses one of those voices that seems to stir up just about every emotion possible' - XFM


Moving to Brighton eight years ago to study photography, Dominique met the musicians that eventually became her full-time backing band, producing their own unique take on country and jazz with a distinct contemporary feel.

Currently working on a new release which embraces influences from Jeff Buckley to Nick Cave, last year Dominique landed a female lead in an arthouse movie called Road To Nod featuring Switzerland's funeral band The Dead Brothers - proving she has more than one string to her bow! Past shows at Komedia have been sell-outs, so don't miss this!


SHE SAID! visit Komedia on Friday 9 February at 9pm.

Tickets are £8 and are available without a booking fee on-line at www.komedia.co.uk/brighton or from the Box Office on 01273 647100.
