Bellevue, WA, May 14, 2009 --( Innocente Seraphim proudly announces the attendance and performance of Kissing Violet to the nation’s first J-fashion and Asian Ball-Jointed Doll hobby convention held August 7-9, 2009 at the Westin Bellevue, in Bellevue Washington. More information can be found at

Kissing Violet is Elia Saldaña and David Vaughn. Elia Saldaña sings lead vocals and David Vaughn is the keyboard player, main lyricist and producer. They’ll perform a live concert at Innocente Seraphim on Friday, August 7, in the Grand Ballroom at the Westin Bellevue. Attendees of InnoSera will have a ticket to the concert as part of their attendee package if they pre-register for the convention before July 18, 2009.

Both David and Elia love to perform on stage. They are joined by several talented musicians when they play in concert. Kissing Violet features a signature melded keyboard and guitar combination, coupled with beautifully distinctive vocal character and melody. The band takes various instruments, moods and sounds into the vision for each of their songs. Critics call their music beautiful edgy pop, with a very sharp edge.

In 2008, that sharp edge was featured when TokyoPop chose Kissing Violet’s song “Feel the Disease” as the opening for TokyoPop’s new imanga Bizenghast. TokyoPop’s music video featuring Kissing Violet can be seen on YouTube at
