Chasing Violets

Photobucket

COUNTRY: France

STYLE: Melodic Rock/AOR

PROFILE: Singers/Songwriters Sarah & Mélissa 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 Frédéric 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 Frédéric Slama.

Produced by Frédéric Slama and co-arranged by the legendary Tommy Denander (Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley from Kiss, Toto, Jimi Jamieson etc.) with the help of Paul Sabu (Only Child, Shania Twain), David Diggs (Quincy Jones, Richie Furay), Christian Tolle (CTP, Cooper Inc.), and various top arrangers including Frédéric Slama of AOR fame, “Outside Heaven” is a pure stroke of genius taking Aor music to a new level of perfection.

With “ Outside Heaven”, Chasing Violets delivers a first class melodic rock album, with a twist of Journey, Toto and Heart, which will certainly be among the finest releases of the year ! The sensual French sisters Sarah & Mélissa Fontaine CHASING VIOLETS are back in 2013 with their second effort “Jade Hearts” which again is written and produced by Frédéric Slama from the band AOR. As in his own projects, Slama get some heavyweight help from the likes of Tommy Denander, Paul Sabu, Goran Edman, Mikael Erlandsson (Last Autumn’s Dream), Bob Harris (Axe) and members of Alien, Hardline & Lionville to name just a few.
