Additional informationFrom Chasing Violets (06.11.2012):
Singers/Songwriters Sarah & M?lissa Fontaine are certainly no strangers to small sold out clubs. During the last five years, they developed a strong following performing in the west country of their native France. Their unique style reflects an influence of Melodic and Classic rock by bands that range from The Eagles to Yngwie Malmsteem, Giant, Dakota,Toto and Survivor.
In a chance meeting with Fr?d?ric Slama of AOR fame (who played with members of Toto, FM, Chicago, Dakota among many others) their careers, and their new band " Chasing Violets " took an exciting turn and they decided to record their first English CD "Outside Heaven" produced by Frederic Slama.
" Chasing Violets " reflects Sarah & Melissa's passion for AOR music : Melodic rock with a touch of sensuality.
" Chasing Violets " is the answer to their dreams - Two female lead singers fronting the band with the best Aor musicians in the world. "Outside Heaven" is sure to become an instant AOR classic.
Produced by Frederic Slama and co-arranged by the legendary Tommy Denander (Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley from Kiss, Toto, Jimi Jamison, Steve Vai, Michael Schenker:) with the help of Paul Sabu (Kidd Glove, Silent Rage, Only Child), David Diggs (Quincy Jones, Richie Furay), Christian Tolle (CTP, Cooper Inc.), and various top arrangers including Frederic Slama of AOR fame.
With "Outside Heaven", Chasing Violets delivers a first class melodic rock album, with a twist of Journey, Toto and Heart.
