Homegrown pop sensations reunite for album release and exclusive live shows!

Australian duo Bachelor Girl are thrilled to announce that they will reunite for the release of their greatest hits album, “Loved & Lost: The Best of Bachelor Girl” (Sony Music) on Friday 15th April, followed by a select group of live shows in May and June. ‘Loved & Lost’ is the first best of collection from Bachelor Girl and will bring together hits such as ‘Permission To Shine’, ‘I’m Just A Girl’ & ‘Buses & Trains’ along with four ‘lost’ songs. These ‘lost’ songs were recorded between 2002-03 and have remained unreleased, until now.

Bachelor Girl, comprising vocalist Tania Doko and keyboardist/producer James Roche, created waves in the local and international music scenes in 1998 with their debut single “Buses And Trains”, taken from the double platinum-selling album “Waiting For The Day” which claimed the 1998 ARIA Award for Best Producer. They secured pop icon status in 1999, when “Buses And Trains” won the APRA Award for Song of the Year and became PPCA’s Most-Played Song on Australian radio, and continued to turn heads as the debut record spawned a further four smash hit singles including “Treat Me Good” and “Permission To Shine”.

2002’s follow-up release “Dysfunctional” saw the band remain on an upward trajectory, featuring hits “I’m Just A Girl” and “Drowning Not Waving”.

Both Doko and Roche return to Australian shores for the ‘Loved & Lost’ tour, after taking a lengthy overseas hiatus; Doko has been based in LA and Stockholm for the past six years, with Roche spending time in London. The pair is delighted to be back on home turf, and they’re gearing up for a run of gigs that will showcase new Bachelor Girl tunes alongside old favourites to fans across the country.

“It’s amazing to think it’s been almost 20 years since James and I met and started working together” says Tania. “It’s also been several years since we’ve both lived in Australia for more than a few months at a time. 2011 has never been a more perfect year to celebrate our career ‘gems’, tour a new release for our fans, and expose some of our favourite lost tracks. We really can’t wait to get out there and play!”
