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).
