Random Women of Rock III – Bif Naked

19 08 2010

A brief introduction to a lady I’ve had the pleasure to discover only recently, the redoubtable Ms Bif Naked.

Bif, real name Beth Torbert, born in India, now of Canadian nationality,  manages to combine feminine wile with punk-inspired sass to deadly effect.  From rock inspired covers to acknowledged classics in her own right, Bif has progressed from tattooed stand-out to award winning artist and even motivational speaker in her own right.

In 2008, Bif was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, but in typical fashion, hasn’t let it slow her down or dampen her propensity to rock one iota. Through her blog and tweets, she still conveys an infectious optimism that is not only catching, but inspiring, elevating  the mantra of  making the  most of every day, to paramount.,

I saw Bif perform a free concert at Mel Lastman Square years ago in North York, Toronto. Was a great show as she really puts out on stage.

Reminds me a bit of the lady rockers I remember from way back when: Joan Jett, Chrissie Hynde, Patti Smith.

Good stuff, Drej!

YD, nothing wrong with any of those dames – looking forward to the Runaways movie coming out soon, big ask of the girl playing Joan Jett!
Doc, yes. and yes.
