Lorelei McBroom- background vocals
“I grew up on folk, rock and roll, pop/jazz, and good soul music. My family was progressive in their approach to my upbringing,” says the Los Angeles born singer who has worked with acts like BILLY IDOL, CHRIS ISSAK and EURYTHMICS. As fate would have it, PINK FLOYD (the Godfathers of Psychedelia) gave her her first exposure to the road on their “Momentary Lapse of Reason “and “Delicate Sound of Thunder” tours. She followed that by touring with the ROLLING STONES. Both the Stones and The Floyd gave her the chance to be both operatic and bluesy, featuring her in duet with MICK JAGGER on “GIMMIE SHELTER” and “GREAT GIG IN THE SKY” respectively.
Lorelei’s additional credit highlights include: LOU REED (backing him with GRACE JONES & DEBBIE HARRY) SISTER SLEDGE (as a songwriter), PHILLIP BAILEY, AARON NEVILLE, DONNY OSMOND, ALBERT COLLINS, and NILE RODGERS
