With Very Special Guests: Joe Elliot's Down 'N' Outz

"Everyone knows that Paul Rodgers is one of the greatest singers in the world. What they are only just waking up to is that there may never be another like him." 
- Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine

One of rock’s most revered singers, Grammy nominated Paul Rodgers, has today announced that he will be returning to the UK in 2011 to tour with very special guests Joe Elliot’s Down ‘N’ Outz.

Paul Rodgers' passion is writing and performing music, constantly recording/releasing new material and touring the globe. For a man who prefers to keep a low profile he has left his indelible mark on music. He is a multi-platinum selling singer, songwriter and self-taught multi-instrumentalist. Paul has written, recorded, produced and released 30 albums since 1968 and has sold over 90 million records. As well as his Grammy nominated solo career, Paul has formed and led 3 bands to worldwide success: Free, Bad Company, & The Firm. On top of his monumental success as a solo artist and as leader of the three bands he has formed, Paul has also recorded/performed with some of the most prevalent and legendary figures in musical history - Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Brian May, David Gilmour, Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Slash, Nils Lofgren, Charlie Watts, Bryan Adams, Motown's Sam Moore & The Four Tops and others. He also had huge success with the ‘Queen and Paul Rodgers’ tour in 2005.

After the huge success of the Bad Company tour earlier in 2010, Paul is now returning to the UK in April of 2011 as a solo artist to play ten shows across the country. Paul’s not entirely alone, he will be joined by very special guests Joe Elliot’s Down ‘N’ Outz.

Sometimes the most interesting of projects arise from the most unusual of circumstances. So it is that the Down ‘N’ Outz is a project fronted by Def Leppards Joe Elliott, backed by The Quireboys and playing tracks connected only by Mott The Hoople.

Sorensen with Bad Company:
Bad Company Reuniting for Summer Tour

Bad Company reuniting for summer tour

By Gary Graff – Tue Mar 31, 5:40 pm ET

DETROIT (Billboard) – After gathering for a one-off reunion last August, the surviving members of the original Bad Company -- vocalist Paul Rodgers, guitarist Mick Ralphs and drummer Simon Kirke -- will play a 10-show tour this summer.

The mostly East Coast dates, which kick off June 17 at the Seminole Hard Rock & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., will herald the release of Bad Company's "Hard Rock Live" DVD, which was recorded at the same venue in 2008. The DVD will be sold at this summer's concert, then released to retail on August 8.

Lynn Sorensen, the bassist from Rodgers' solo band, will step in for Boz Burrell, who died in 2006, while Howard Leese, the former Heart principal who also works with Rodgers, will play second guitar. The Doobie Brothers will be opening all but the final show in Atlantic City.

Rodgers tells that the success of the 2008 reunion date inspired the band to play some more concerts together."It was a really good show -- both the band and the fans were on fire," recalls the singer, who broke away from his rehearsal schedule with Queen + Paul Rodgers to do that date. "Queen does fantastic versions of my material, but it was very authentic playing with the (Bad Company) guys, very much the real deal, I guess."

And, Rodgers added, "we recorded a DVD that night, which we're very proud of. The idea of releasing the DVD was a reality and supporting it is also a reality, and I think we really need to go out and do some dates in support of it. But I wanted to keep it to a minimum and keep it somewhat exclusive, too."

The singer says he hopes to dig even deeper into the Bad Company catalog than the group did in 2008, mentioning "Silver, Blue and Gold" from 1976's "Run With the Pack" as one he'd particularly like the bring into the set.

Rodgers says additional Bad Company shows are unlikely, as he plans to take the rest of the year off to focus on writing new material.

Eva reaches 18 on the IAC Big 50!


January 7, 2008

Review from The Atomic Chaser / All Access Magazine

Sex And Violins debut release is a phenomenal piece of work. There are several different musical styles here and the band have pulled off the impressive task of cooking it all up into a flavorful gumbo of sound that you're not likely to mistake for anyone else. At the same time, they have enough rock bottom elements in their music to be accessible to most anyone who stumbles across them. An outstanding debut release by and amazing rock band. SEX and VIOLINS could very well become a force to reckoned with in modern rock. Hats off to Lynn Sorensen and the rest of the band, for one hell of an amazing job! - The Atomic Chaser, THE DRP/All Access Magazine

Sex and Violins song Eva busts through IAC's Big 50!

Sex and Violins song Eva has rocketed up to 36 on the IAC Big 50 in a little over a week. It's a cool Cajun style of blues rock track with some classic Zeppelin overtones. Big guitar production and a sweet harmonic vocal delivery.
