From the streets of Long Beach, Zen Robbi is helping The Pier celebrate the Holidays & wrap up 2011 by giving away a brand new song off their new album “Lovely In The Middle” that drops on January 3rd 2012. The FREE song, “Dance With Me”, is this week’s FREE MP3 & will be available all the way up until Dec 31st.
When asked to describe what this new song was about, Zen Robbi told The Pier “It’s just a love song without the “but” in the relationship. A lot of relationships come with a set of circumstances or “i love you, but…” scenario. Dance with Me is just a fun loving love song meant to be between two people coming together to just have a carefree time. No complications just fun and love.”
Zen Robbi Bio/Background:
After releasing three previous full-length albums titled, “Company”, “Pawn Gone King” and “Heavy Lies the Crown”, the trio has hit the studio once again to expand their progressive sound.
Aside from basing their music off of a three-piece band, Zen Robbi is set to release their latest piece of art after the New Year titled, “Lovely in the Middle: An Acoustic Collection”. The album features notable accompanying musicians from the Southern California music scene, including Micah Brown – Slide Guitar/Dobro on “Champagne”, Josh Fischel – Back Up Vocals on “ByGones”. If thats not enough, there’s further appearances courtesy of Todd Forman on the Saxophone (Sublime with Rome, Dirty Heads), Jamie Bullock on Organ (formerly of International Farmers), Kris Jackson, also on organ, along with Max O’leary on trumpet and Josh Molle on Trombone, both of the Mike Pinto Band. Brian Perske also adds to the ensemble playing the Saxophone with Lara Beers contributing as female background vocals.
“Sometimes the stars align, and the right sounds are made at the right time by righteous artists. The men of ZEN know where it’s at, and I’m proud to have added some baritone flava to the mix on ‘Dance With Me.’ SO tastey! Enjoy and spread the joy!” -Todd Forman
From just that quote alone, this album is a must listen, containing ten tracks with a full, expansive band. However, take a sneak peak for yourself and as Todd said, “Enjoy and spread the joy!” with this week’s “Dance With Me” leak.
