Frontiers Music Srl is proud to announce the signing of British rock singer Chez Kane to the label. A talented, young vocalist who fronts, with her two sisters, the band Kane'd, she was brought to the attention of the label after conversations with Danny Rexon of Crazy Lixx about the possibility of him scouting and producing some exciting new talent. Subsequently, Danny started working on some demos with Chez and the label did not pass up the opportunity to get involved with this incredible talent. Chez's debut solo album embraces the melodic rock style that both she and Danny so admire, while adding a new twist to the current takes on the genre. 
“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 so humbled to have Frontiers on board. This is going to be killer and I can’t wait!” says Chez.


Producer Danny Rexon says, “Until now, I had only worked on the production of Crazy Lixx, but with this I can take 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 the album started 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. So, 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 both of my own band, Crazy Lixx and of the retro melodic rock genre at large.”
Chez adds that even “though I was born in the 90’s, I have always had a major soft spot for that infectious 80’s style, so from that aspect Danny’s songwriting fits me really well. We have the same vision, drive and passion to make this album an absolute belter!”
So what can listeners expect? “If you’re a fan of my stuff with Crazy Lixx, I bet you’ll enjoy the Chez Kane album too,” explains Danny. “I’ve written and arranged every song on the album, so it’s bound to have my signature style to it. However, this album will be a lot more radio friendly (at least if you go by what was considered radio friendly in 1989), a lot more keyboard oriented and of course, the fact that it’s a powerful female voice singing the songs will give the album a whole other dimension. And if you, like myself, are a fan of Lee Aaron, Vixen, Saraya, Chrissy Steele, Lita Ford, and similar artists and feel like the genre’s missing out this vital component, you’re going to love the debut album from Chez Kane!”
Chez Kane's self-titled debut solo album will be released on March 12, 2021.


First single out January 13th.

Tracklisting:
1. Better Than Love
2. All Of It
3. Rocket On The Radio
4. Get It On
5. Too Late For Love
6. Defender Of The Heart
7. Ball N' Chain
8. Midnight Rendezvous
9. Die In The Name Of Love
10. Dead End Street

Interested to hear this one, Danny Rexon’s involvement can only be a good thing and Chez has a great voice. Hopefully this can be a modern female fronted Melodic Rock / Hair Metal effort in the vein of Femme Fatale, Lita Ford, Witness, Lee Aaron etc.

She was in (may still be) the band Kane'd, which featured her and her two sisters on vocals. Their music is a mix of old school and modern rock, and certainly not a band that would be unwelcome on here.

Also, if you check out her youtube channel, it is full of cover versions, most of which are 80s rock songs. (Skid Row, Steelheart, Cheap Trick, Cinderella, Motley Crue etc)

First single ‘Too Late For Love’ out today. 
Awesome track! Love the throwback 80s vibe and Chez sounds great. Can definitely tell Danny Rexon is all over this also. iTunes have album samples up and it sounds killer. Can see it appealing to a few on here. Music video out at a later date.

This song sounds exactly like a Crazy Lixx song, so it's basically just the voice that makes the difference and I automatically compare her voice to Danny. Have to say that though she's got a great voice, I prefer Danny. She doesn't sing that special. 

About the Itunes samples... most of these songs feel like Crazy Lixx songs that weren't good enough for the album except for 'Rocket on the radio', 'get it on' and 'ball n' chain'. These songs I wouldn't mind being on a Crazy Lixx album. Get it on reminds me of "She's mine" which is one my favourite CL songs.

Cool song. Very Crazy Lixx, though it appears, according to Danny, the entire project is essentially Crazy Lixx with female vocals. Nothing inherently wrong with that, short term anyway, but how long will we want to hear another version of a pre-existing band? I hope they craft a unique sound for her on future albums. But she's definitely one to keep an eye on. And I think for some here they may take that literally.

100% completely and comprehensively just Crazy Lixx with female vocals, which as we all know, is not a bad thing. Nice.

Absolutely love this. They have captured the top down, party 80’s throwback vibe so well. A nice mix of Danger Danger and Blue Tears. 

All the other tracks are sounding huge also. This will be a killer release.

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
