2018 release from this band made up of former members of pioneering female rock band Fanny. The groundbreaking band Fanny, called "the most masterful all-female band of the classic rock era" (NPR) and "one of the most important female bands in American rock" (David Bowie), has reunited as Fanny Walked the Earth - a name that reflects all that they've accomplished in their lives; all they've seen, done and lived through - for their first album in decades Fanny landed a deal in 1969 with Reprise Records, becoming the first-ever all-female rock band to sign a record deal for a full-length album, and would pave the way for women musicians such as The Runaways, The Bangles and the Go-Go's for decades to come. Drawing influence from Motown bands to the Beach Boys to Jimi Hendrix, Fanny released their first five albums between 1970 and 1974 with various iterations of members, working with producers including Richard Perry (Carly Simon, Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson), Todd Rundgren and Vini Poncia. They recorded at the Beatles' Apple Studios, backed Barbra Streisand on her first "rock" album, Stoney End, and toured as the opening act for legends like Slade, Jethro Tull and Humble Pie, winning over new fans with their mix of full-throttle, rockin'-funk vocals, unapologetically heavy rock guitars, and hard, punchy beats. The band was also shattering expectations. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, to say that rock was male-dominated would be a gross understatement; rock was almost completely male. But the girls of Fanny never backed down from the challenge. "I just wanted to have fun, and I wanted to show off, and I wanted to do what I loved doing," says drummer Brie Darling. "If anyone was ever a little snide, I thought, 'You just wait.'"
