ZANDER BLECK is still Alive venerdì, 14 luglio 2017 22:50 by madseason
Zander Bleck - Alive

I featured American singer/songwriter Zander Bleck on weChameleon some years ago, when he released his single Temptation for Interscope Records, co-written by the legendary Holly Knight (who penned hits for Heart, Tina Turner and Pat Benatar) and produced by recording studios superstars RedOne (Lady Gaga, Usher, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez) and Robert John "Mutt" Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard, Nickelback, Muse).

The single should have been followed by the debut album Monument, but an executive shakeup reordered Interscope Records: Zander shifted to Capitol Records, but his major label launch was not to be.

Zander has since then disappeared from my radar, until now: today, July 14, he's releasing his brand new single, Alive. Featuring emotive vocals, driven guitar riffs and dominating drums, this anthemic pop-rock track will revitalize the spirits of audiences.

Alive is available for download or streaming on Spotify and the video is available for viewing on YouTube: check it out now clicking on the image.

SOFT CYANIDE, the solo effort of Devin Barrus venerdì, 9 dicembre 2016 16:59 by madseason
Soft Cyanide on YouTube

Soft Cyanide is the solo effort of singer/songwriter Devin Barrus. Known for his heavyweight rock vocal style in Former Tides, the singer set out to write, record, and release his own music in a pop based market.

Influenced by such bands as Keane, PVRIS, Anberlin, Depeche Mode, Copeland, Paramore, The 1975, Soft Cyanide blends electronic sampling, synthesizers, infectious pop melodies and clean guitar leads to create a personal sound.

Soft Cyanide should have debuted last November 18 with an independently released EP but, following the overwhelming response to the songs showcased so far, Devin decided to put out this EP in a much more effective and marketable strategy to reach further than just his fanbase.

I will keep you updated on this matter, meanwhile stream the 4 singles available on SoundCloud or Spotify and check the videos released so far clicking on the image.
