Vancouver rocker Bif Naked usually has an excellent time when she gets on stage in Chilliwack.
She’s in Paris this week, but will be on her way back to the Lower Mainland for a local gig next week.
Bif once told the Progress: “We have the best time playing in Chilliwack. We have a great fan base there. Fans keep coming back.”
It’s not by accident that she became a proud recipient of an honourary degree in performance from University of the Fraser Valley.
Bif is known for the sheer energy and power of her live shows.
“Performance is my passion,” she said. “I owe it to myself and my beautiful fans to keep evolving and pushing the boundaries.”
Her ability to slide between punk, rock, pop, alternative, and more are clear on her platinum album I Bificus as well as Purge and Superbeautifulmonster.
The tattoed vegan artist is an utter original. She faced and overcame a series of trials in her life, coming into the world as an orphan in India, fighting to make it in the music world, to battling breast cancer in her 30s.
Bif remains innovative, revolutionary, and inspiring with notable tracks to her credit: “I Love Myself Today” and “Tango Shoes” to “Nothing Else Matters” and “We Are The Lucky Ones”, “Let Down” and “Spaceman” which made Canadian history with its number one position on the national charts, and number 2 on Billboard’s international charts making it the highest-spun independent song in Canadian history.
Many have seen a show by Bif’s special guest Tarl or heard one of his tunes on the radio. The band is heating up the charts in Canada, the U.S., Germany, Japan and Italy, proving that fans everywhere love their Rock n’ Roll straight up with no gimmicks.
With titles like “The Social”, “Tonight”, “The Strip”, “So Long” and “Fall” listeners can understand the lyrics, the melody, and they want to sing along.
Front Man Tarl Feser states, “At some point, I realized I don’t just want to do this. I have to do this.”
