LyonPride Music Presents Sex and Violins @ Backstage BSBG's Tacoma June 19th
Sex And Violinsthe scream of ecstasy, the whisper of the heart. It's the beat of the tormented soul, the caress of a longing hand. It's the sparkle in a child's eye, the dark of a wind from hell. The black, the white, the laugh, the cry. It's life, it's here and it's in front of you. TAKE IT!
With tunes like "I'm On Fire," and "You've Got Me Addicted," Sex And Violins gives us the best sex we ever had...I'm come-ing back begging for more...please give it to us!
MORE ABOUT SEX AND VIOLINS
Unlike most bands, Sex And Violins was never meant to be a band at all. Lynn Sorensen (lead vox / bass/ violin) and Jeff Kathan (drums) had been touring the world with legendary rock vocalist Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company, The Firm, Queen) as the rhythm section in his solo band. 18 year old Ian Crawford (guitar) had been playing with Jeff and Lynn in Seattle radio station KZOK's band Spike And The Impalers.
In the summer of '06, Shane Valdez of REALM Films out of Las Vegas recruited the three to record music for upcoming feature film projects. Lynn and Ian's ability to write naturally with flowing counterpoint lines between guitar and bass coupled with Jeff's natural groove made forming a band and making a CD the only choice. At Digital Insight Studios in Las Vegas, Sex And Violins was born.
By December of '06 Sex And Violins were shooting the video for the title track Sex And Violins. It was directed by Shane's son Ryan Valdez (Panic At The Disco, Tool, Nora Jones, Jet) on film in two days on location in Las Vegas. With high energy and raw passion, this video gives you a unique visual look into the compulsion that drives a young woman's sexual appetite to the point where she must take the trophy at all costs. And take it she does!
In March of 2007 Ian was picked up by Atlantic recording artist The Cab. Lynn and Jeff went on tour through Europe and the US with Paul Rodgers for the summer. Off the road Lynn spent every spare second finishing all the vocals, mixing and mastering in his home studio in Seattle. Evan Sheeley and Mark Russell were brought in to complete the band.
When Lynn isn't working with Sex And Violins, he is working with his other Seattle bands, Magic Bus, The Fabulous Johnsons, PowerCell or he's touring the world! Lynn is currently the bassist for the original Bad Company. This line-up includes the three remaining members, Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke. Lynn first played with them on August 8, 2008, in Miami's Hard Rock Arena. A DVD of this show is on sale worldwide and has charted at #3 in the UK. Lynn toured 10 East coast dates and 8 UK arena sold out dates with the band ending at Wembly Arena in London 2009; Lynn continued to tour with Bad Company at selected US and Canadian dates in the summer of 2010 and Japan in the fall of 2010. Lynn will tour with Paul Rodgers solo band spring 2011.
The band is getting ready to go back into the studio to start working on a new CD!!!
