Chasing Violets

Top class female AOR music ! During the last five years, Sarah & Mélissa Fontaine developed a strong following performing in their native France with several Rock bands. In 2011, their love for Aor music was so strong that they decided to form a new Female Melodic Rock band, called “Chasing Violets”.
« Chasing Violets » was the answer to their dreams - Two female lead singers fronting a top band with the best Melodic Rock musicians in the world.
In 2012, They released their 1st Melodic Rock album in English entitled, “Outside Heaven” produced by Frédéric Slama of AOR fame (who worked with such legends as members of Toto, Chicago, Paul Sabu, Tommy Denander, Steve Overland (FM), James Christian (House Of Lords), Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot) etc.) and featuring the great Tommy Denander (Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley, Toto, Jimi Jamison etc.) with the help of Paul Sabu (Only Child, Kidd Glove), David Diggs (Irene Cara, Sweet Confort Band), Christian Tolle (CTP), and various top arrangers including Frédéric Slama.
“Outside Heaven” was a pure stroke of genius taking Aor music to a new level of perfection, featuring big Melodic Rock stars, and became an instant AOR classic.
After almost a year of hard work Chasing Violets is back with a brand new album called “Jade Hearts” emphasizing the rockier sides of Sarah & Mélissa Fontaine.
Written & Produced by Frédéric Slama (AOR), “Jade Hearts” is the most impressive female fronted Melodic Rock album you could dream of, reminiscent of Journey, Heart & Survivor with a glamorous touch.
Once again the talented & sensual French sisters have surrounded themselves with the best musicians from the Melodic Rock scene like Tommy Denander (Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley), Paul Sabu (Kidd Glove, Only Child), Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteem, Crossfade), Mikael Erlandsson (Last Autumn's Dream), Bob Harris (Axe) members of Alien, Hardline & Lionville, Christian Tolle, Eric Ragno among many others…
With this new album, Chasing Violets will take you to Melodic perfection with a sexy edge, killer songs, angelic vocals and unforgettable solos.
« Jade Heart » is the perfect illustration of what pure Aor is all about and this second strike from Chasing Violets will surely leave you breathless !
