Independent Distribution Collective presents our 69th Solicitation just in time for Holiday placement (our sixth of this year). We are excited about many of these new releases and are very proud to have a handful of great artists joining IDC. Check out the overview of our new titles below, and feel free to visit our website anytime for more information on any of these artists or releases. IDC proudly welcomes these 4 new titles:
Jennifer Saran – Merry Christmas, You Are Loved CD
Jennifer Saran is a North American alt-pop/adult contemporary artist, songwriter and vocalist based in Hong Kong. Her first fulllength album Merry Christmas, You Are Loved, will be available both digitally and physically worldwide with its release on November 20th, 2015. This album was created with legendary producer Narada Michael Walden, and is being released through his label Tarpan Records. The album is a contemporary mix of brand new originals penned by Jennifer and Narada, as well as some very well chosen covers, all of which revolve around the central themes of love and family and the winter holidays.
C.C. – In The Moment CD
A collection of 13 genre-diverse tracks spanning smooth R&B, hip-shaking funk and heart-piercing soul numbers. The album, as a whole, demonstrates C.C.’s diversity as both a vocalist and master of musical interpretation and performance. C.C has opened for music legends like The Temptations, Natalie Cole and Kool and The Gang and shared stages with megastar entertainers including James Brown and Ray Charles. He has established himself as a sought after session vocalist and has appeared on many projects that include Grammy award-winning producer Narada Michael Walden and the upcoming release of Santana IV Now.
Zierler – ESC CD
His first new album in nearly a decade, ZIERLER’s long awaited debut, simply titled ESC, is Finn’s most mature as well as his most daring musical work to date. Drawing from a wide array of influences that bring to mind everything from the unabashed pomp of Queen and the madness of Devin Townsend, to the virtuosity of Dream Theater and the eclectic stylings of Danny Elfman, Finn and company masterfully walk the fine line between genius and insanity, combining a powerful, multi-layered progressive metal foundation with an often dark, majestic orchestral feel. A musical as well as a personal tour-de-force.
Smokovich – Sky Coral CD
Sky Coral is the debut release from a new West Coast true psychedelic hero, Sean Smokovich. Recorded at Hyde Street Studio A in San Francisco through the historic Neve 8083 board (sister to Dave Grohl’s “Sound City” board). The level of master craft employed in the making of this record would impress any 33rd degree initiate. SkyCoral is a gracefully complex mega face melt. Sky Coral evokes a jam band ethos and orchestration that is hard to capture in electronic music. While refreshingly original, this album is born out of the West Coast Electronic Bass scene. Smokovich is a regular at festivals like Symbiosis, Gem & Jam, Firefly Gathering, Burning Man, Northern Nights, and opening for Shpongle at the Crystal Ballroom.
