For immediate release. November 16, 2016, Miami, Florida:
Dave Kerzner, co-founder of the progressive rock group Sound of Contact, has embarked on his second solo album called “Static”. It is the follow up to his highly acclaimed debut album “New World”. Kerzner, who has run two successful Kickstarter campaigns for his previous albums, has chosen the crowd-funding platform again for “Static”.
The album is available for pre-order here: https://sonicelements.bandcamp.com/album/static
“Static” is a Progressive Rock concept album about navigating past the chaos, clutter and noise so prevalent in modern everyday life. It will feature Dave Kerzner on lead vocals, keyboards and guitars along with guitarist/bassist Fernando Perdomo, drummer Derek Cintron, guitarist Randy McStine (The Fringe), bassist Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), drummer Alex Cromarty (Mostly Autumn), bassist Stuart Fletcher (Mantra Vega), bassist Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact), vocalists Durga & Lorelei McBroom (Pink Floyd) and more.
“The approach I’ve taken with ‘Static’ is a mix of improvisational collaboration with the guys I played with on my last tour combined with writing songs on my own like I did on ‘New World'” Says Kerzner “As a result, the experience for me is like a hybrid of my past band projects and my solo work for the best of both worlds in terms of spontaneity and a diverse blend of styles.”
“Static” is expected to be released in the first Quarter of 2017 on CD and download through Kerzner’s independent RecPlay label. For more more information visit http://www.davekerzner.com
