Femme Fatale (1987-1990, 2013-present): a Glam Metal band from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
elocating to Los Angeles from Albuquerque, New Mexico very early on, this Glammy pop metal act secured a deal with 'M.C.A.' and released their self-titled debut in 1988 featuring Lorraine Lewis (vocals), Bill D'Angelo (guitar), Mazzi Rawd (guitar), Rick Rael (bass) and Bobby Murray (drums). Front-woman Lewis proved to be a formidable saleswoman as well as a singer for she pushed the act to at least some minor notice with her marketing efforts, but in the end they found it too tough to compete in with the bigger acts dominating the genre and folded a year later.
In 2013 Lewis reformed the band with the all female line-up of Courtney Cox and Nita Strauss on guitars, Janis Tanaka on bass, Katt Scarlett on keyboards, and both Rachael Rine and Athena on drums. Three years later they would sign with Nashville, Tennessee-based company 'FnA Records' to release their long-shelved second album, One More for the Road (2016) featuring Nikki Stringfield on guitars to replace Strauss. The album featured recordings dating between 1989-1990 that were originally intended to be the band's followup to their 1988 debut before being dropped by their record label at the time, 'MCA', and their subsequent break-up.
In January 2019, Lewis was nominated as vocalist fellow all-female band, Vixen.
