Performing Aug. 5 and 6 at Jazziz Nightlife, 201 Plaza Real, Boca Raton: singing star Sophie B. Hawkins (Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover).
Since her instantaneous 1992 breakthrough with the indelible hit single “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” and her acclaimed debut album Tongues and Tails, Sophie B. Hawkins has proven an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to constantly evolving, while remaining steadfastly true to her own authentic history and experience. Whaler, her second album, was released in 1994 and contained a US top 10 hit, “As I Lay Me Down”, which certified gold and three singles from the album made the UK Top 40, including “Right Beside You.” In 2012, Hawkins starred as Janis Joplin in the play, Room 105 and released her fifth album of all new material titled The Crossing. On April 4, 2013, Sophie appeared on the TV series Community as herself, performing “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” and “As I Lay Me Down.”
Sandra Bernhard continues to tour nationally and overseas with her new live show Sandyland, spotlighting her own unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n-roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque.
Sandyland, which also features Bernhard’s band The Flawless Zircons, has been selling out venues in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and all points in between. The New York Times recently commented that “Just below the surface, you sense the same roving critical eye that misses nothing and the same sensibility compelled to puncture fantasies And, Ms. Bernhard’s ear is as perfectly attuned as ever to music that you’re embarrassed to admit you might like.” Of her recent shows at Joe’s Pub in Manhattan, Next Magazine wrote “Bernhard looked like 10 million bucks in a pair of black leather pants and a chic white blouse, her world was Sandyland and we were merely allowed to live in it. Her lacerating observations and spot-on social commentary remain as sharp and insightful as ever.”
