Eric Zayne brings his unique take on alt pop to Music Friday Live! this Friday


headshot_299.jpgI first saw Eric Zayne at a pre-Grammy party at Busby's in mid-town LA.  I sat there on a couch in the front row and said to myself, where did he comfrom?  And why haven't I heard of him before.  He is really, really good.  so I talked with him afterward and booked him on the show, although his tour schedule is so tight that we had to wait a month to find a Friday morning he was free andnot on th road or recording. His song "Nepture" - and the accompanying video - are hypnotizing.  His latest release, "Maneater" goes even father in embedding itself in your brin.  Eric Zayne is a separate universe from most of the male pop singers out there.

Zayne plays and produces soul infused pop-rock  blenind  electronics to create a sound that is edgy and captivating.  And he crates videos with his music that set a new bar in quality and creativity.  At 13 years old, Zayne started playing in multiple bands throughout his home city, Montreal. His first major gig was a five year tour across Asia where he played keyboards, guitar and sang in a funk band; these formative years taught Zayne about songwriting, performing and how to connect with an audience.  Zayne arrived on the Los Angeles music scene in February 2013 and focused his music on pop alternative although his influences range from Prince to the Beatles to Maroon 5. Recently signed by the independent record label What If Records, he spent this summer touring in California promoting his singles 'Spin the World' & 'Maneater' while also recording and producing his first EP Between Us. Zayne is currently recording a new mixtape called "AutobiograMe" which features Matisyahu and Amber Riley from Glee. This mixtape will be a free release in early 2014.
