99 CRIMES is a new Austin, Texas based band that brings together a trio of experienced musicians that play quality original music.
None of the trio are strangers to the world of rock and roll either, as guitarist / vocalist Paul Lidel is the current guitarist of the reactivated Dangerous Toys, and formerly of the well-known rockers, Dirty Looks. Joining him in 99 CRIMES are drummer Chris Jordan (Southbound Saints, Miss Crazy) and bassist / guitarist/ vocalist Jeff Lynn.
Drawing on their varied past experiences, they are forging a new, shared chapter as 99 CRIMES, and in doing so, are making some face melting music in the process. Reminiscent of classic greats like Whitesnake, Grand Funk Railroad or Triumph, 99 CRIMES exude a guitar-oriented style of heavy rock with soaring vocals.
“Coming Down Like Rain” was filmed and produced by Steve Miller (AustinVideoSpecialist.com).
