British (Welsh) singer Chez Kane is a powerhouse rock vocalist with an edgy, energetic & confident stage presence. Wanting to be a singer from the moment she could talk & singing on stage for the first time at around the age of 3, there was no escaping music for Chez as she was born into a big family of musicians & singers and it was inevitable that she was going to evolve into the rock chick that she is today!
Growing up being a huge fan of Def Leppard to now being crazy about Alter Bridge, Chez has a very wide taste in Rock Music from 80's, to Hair Metal, to just pure Rock 'n' Roll.
Chez Kane released her self-titled debut album on March 12, 2021 via Frontiers Music Srl, and entered the Official UK Rock Album charts at no.8. Produced by Danny Rexon of rock band Crazy Lixx, "Chez Kane" is a melodic rock album that harkens back to the glory days of the '80s when the genre was known for having multiple incredible front-women playing the style.
A talented young vocalist, who also fronts with her two sisters in the band Kane'd, Chez was brought to the attention of Frontiers Music srl 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, whilst adding a new twist to current takes on the genre. “I feel so excited to have been asked to collaborate with Danny. The second I heard the music I instantly knew it was for me, and I’m thrilled at the opportunity to have been able to launch my solo career this way. I am so excited & humbled to have Frontiers on board!” 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 this solo project 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 the Chez Kane solo project 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 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 Heart, Pat Benatar, 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!” The album has generated sales across the globe with a growing fanbase throughout Europe, the U.S and as far as Japan. Since releasing her debut album, Chez has gone from strength to strength. Chez was approached by legend Jim Peterik of Survivor (Songwriter of the iconic “Eye of the Tiger”) to collaborate on a song for his album “Tigress”. The song A Cappella was chosen to be the 2nd single release.
Chez has been making a big impression worldwide with her powerful & energetic live performances. Having sold out headline shows in Spain and the UK already, Chez has been confirmed for many exciting events all over the world which includes the legendary Monsters of Rock Cruise in the USA, the Sweden Rock Festival & the Rock Imperium Festival in Spain. You can check out her full gig itinerary on her website and across her social media pages. Due to the success of her debut album, Chez & Danny got straight back into the studio working on her second album “Powerzone” which was released 21st Oct 2022 on Frontiers Music srl.
