Sunset Records Announces the Signing of Russia Rockers Zamza

New York, NY, May 27, 2007 --( Hailing from the eastern part of Russia, Zamza is a well-respected, major indie label signed, three-piece "Trip Hip Power Pop" band.

Their debut CD, which will be in stores on July 10th, is entitled, "Turn To You", and should serve to further skyrocket the band's trajectory in the music industry. They are currently hard at work performing live in Russia throughout May and June - gearing up for the new release on Sunset Records in July 2007.

Zamza is unquestionably one of the most unique emerging artists today and is currently considered one of the most innovative bands around. Their music is intense, breathtaking, ranging from psychedelic driving club style sounds, to a progressive alternative pop style of music, blended with a wonderful compendium of other sounds in between.

The album was recorded at the Novikov Studio in Vladivostok, Russia, just 40 minutes from the bands home town of Khabarovsk. The band is fronted by keyboardist, producer Max K., who combined his talent with musicians Serge Tarakhteyev (guitar), and singer Evgenya Strochinskaya (Vocalist) completes the trio. "We have an entire CD of quality music to work," says Don Lichterman, the founder and head of Sunset Records. "They are some of the most intense musicians I have heard in a long time," Lichterman continues. "I cannot wait to get them all over America this year."

Zamza "is extremely happy about our new recording deal with Sunset Records for our debut album," comments Max K. "Sunset has established itself as one of the world's top independent record labels. We couldn't be more enthusiastic about working with them to expand our audience to the United States and elevate the band to the next level." The band was found by the label through its online A&R submittal tool and Lichterman "could not more thrilled" how the band came to the label.

Lichterman goes on to say that he "was getting ready to encode the music for eSunset and was blown away the second I heard the first song." The first single is "Flyin' Away" which showcases the wonderful vocals and melodic songs on this CD. Lichterman expects two United States tours this year. The fall plans for the band are to work strategic bookings where the band can play their own style of music for many hours. "We expect some great things from this band this year," Lichterman said from his New York office. This is the first signing at the main label at Sunset. Coincidentally, Lichterman booked the band Gorky Park at the studio he managed in 1989. They were the first Russian band to ever record in the United States.
