British Rock singer Chez Kane has signed to Frontiers Records on a multi-album deal. Kane, who also fronts the band Kane’d, was recommended to the label by Danny Rexon, frontman of Crazy Lixx.
Chez tells us: “I feel so excited to have been asked to collaborate with Danny for a solo album. The second I heard the music, I instantly knew it was for me and I’m thrilled at the opportunity to launch my solo career this way. I am also so humbled to have Frontiers on board. This is going to be killer and I can’t wait!”
Danny adds: “Until now, I had only worked on the production of Crazy Lixx, but here I can take on a whole other role where I’m working on building up a brand new solo artist, which is quite refreshing, especially when we’re talking about creating something with a talented and hardworking singer like Chez.”
The concept behind her forthcoming album began with a vision that Danny had in mind.
“I’ve long felt that the contemporary melodic rock scene is missing an important piece of what I think made the genre, at least to some extent, so great in the late 80’s and early 90’s, and that is the quintessential female rocker. There are tons of bands in the melodic rock genre, but I feel like we’re missing that great female solo artist singing hard rock”
A kind of Lee Aaron, Lita Ford, or Robin Beck for the new decade. The mission was clear to me from day one: give the fans a female rocker that will remind them of the powerful rock anthems of the past. Having found Chez and discovering the potential in her voice, I have great faith in this endeavour and no doubt that this album will resonate well with fans of both my own band and the retro melodic rock genre at large.”
Chez concurs: “Though I was born in the 90’s, I’ve always had a major soft spot for that infectious 80’s style, so from that aspect Danny’s songwriting suits me really well. We have the same vision, drive and passion to make this album an absolute belter!”
