Audio Vixen From The X Factor Are Going To Support Barry Gibb
Audio Vixen the sibling group that came ninth on The X Factor a couple of years ago have had a career coup by getting a support act with former Bee Gee Barry Gibb.
Clearly they are focusing on an older fan base with this gig.
The Daily Telegraph reports:
Gibb has asked for Audio Vixen – made up of Pirrelli siblings Ria , 29, Christine, 27, and Ross, 21 – to be his support act when he tours Australia next month.The Sydney-based trio who rocked their way into the top nine on hit show The X Factor, recorded Morning Of My Life in an attempt to capture the attention of their idol – and it worked.
“When we set out to try and get Barry to listen to our music, we just presumed we’d get a note back saying thanks but no thanks,” Ria Pirrelli said.
“A few weeks later we got a phone call from the promoters to say Barry had requested that Audio Vixen be his support act for his tour in February.
“We’ve been told that he listened to the CD and watched our clip on YouTube and it all happened from there.”
She said the trio had based their sounds around the Bee Gees’ signature vocal style.
