CHASING VIOLETS - Outside Heaven (2012)



Formación que nos viene desde Francia, apadrinados por Frederic Slama (project AOR),, donde el protagonismo, lo tienen dos cantantes noveles en este tipo de música. Como es habitual, Frederic Slama se ha rodeado de un montón de invitados para que colaboren en este disco. Estaran en Madrid en Septiembre, tocando con ALIEN y los españoles, HARDREAMS.

Hailing from France, CHASING VIOLETS is formed by sisters Sarah & Melissa Fontaine, and their debut "Outside Heaven" surely will please the AOR / Melodic Rock community.

Produced and co-written by Frederic Slama (project AOR) and with songs co-arranged by the legendary Tommy Denander, Paul Sabu, Robert Sall (Work of Art) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Shining Line) among other luminaries, we have some notorious players as well contributing in the instrumentation.
The list is impressive; Michael Landau, Jerry Hludzik, Philip Bardowell, Bruce Gaitsch, Göran Edman and many, many more.
Chasing Violets reflects Sarah & Melissa's passion for AOR music: Melodic Rock with a touch of sensuality - following the footsteps of Robin Beck or Fiona - but also classic FM music and a dash of West Coast.

Both Sarah & Melissa have sweet and velvety voices, sometimes emotional as in "Voices In The Wind", sometimes gorgeous in complete harmony with the singers who support them.
There are really melodic tunes here such as the duets with the incredible Göran Edman on "The Price To Pay" and "Above Suspicion", or "A Hole In Paradise" and the aorish "No Margin For Error" with the always effective Philip Bardowell.
"Hold Back The Dawn", possibly the track featuring the most remarkable stars, is where the girls performance is not completely convincing, although the instrumentation by Denander, Michael Landau(!), Del Vecchio, the great Mike Baird and Jerry Hludzik from Dakota is excellent.
Other good tracks to mention are the Joey Summer arranged "Cease Fire" where he plays most of the music and the guitar solos are shared between three guests (including David Mark Peace), and the almost hard rocking "Just Wanna Be Your Heroin", the only cut entirely written by the sisters.

"Outside Heaven" is a good and enjoyable female fronted Melodic Rock / AOR album, musically oriented to the American side of the genre.
The songs are well composed & arranged, and the instrumental performances good and accomplished (in some places really good).
As said, Sarah and Melissa have sweet voices but on some tracks they lack the necessary power and punch to impact. I think this is a production issue, I mean, seems Slama wanted to make them sound refined and smooth everywhere, and on these particular songs the vocals needed the opossite. A prove is the aforementioned "Just Wanna Be Your Heroin" where the ladies get loose and show that they are capable to deliver a more aggressive performance.
All in all, "Outside Heaven" is fine slice of Melodic Rock music featuring an all-star personnel and good songs.
