Awesome new artist alert!
Interscope recording artist Zander Bleck is putting the finishing touches on his debut set, Monument, which will be released later this year. For a sneak peek at what this rocker has to offer, two songs, "Temptation" and "Bring It On," are available digitally as of right now.
"Temptation" was written by Zander and Holly Knight (who penned hits for Heart, Tina Turner and Pat Benatar) and was the song that got the attention of producer RedOne (Lady Gaga, Usher). "Temptation" is the first single off Monument, which was recorded in various studios around the globe in 2010, and the early part of 2011.
A subsequent studio session with famed producer Mutt Lange produced the track "Bring It On" which is currently featured in Fox Television's regional and national promos for the PAC 12 NCAA conference games.
Zander Bleck has worked with quite an impressive cache of producers and talent. His tunes have gotta be as good as his name.
A self-taught vocalist, Zander grew up in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, where at the age of nine fell in love with rock 'n' roll while watching a video of The Who perform at Woodstock. Upon graduating high school, Zander moved to New York City and started his first rock band, Monument. He began to write songs and was able to get Monument gigs all over the city. Zander branched out on his own and used his connections to line up songwriting sessions that led to him signing a deal with Interscope Records.
We like Zander Bleck because he has a cool name and is from New Jersey. Holla!
