A spellbinding voice, vibrant charisma and a compelling artist in ascension: Zander Bleck creates epic, anthemic music to propel powerhouse rock into the future.

Through the unprecedented reach of social media, his songs resonate worldwide. “I am a big advocate for positivity and manifesting what you want,” he says. “The universe has funny ways of making that happen in ways we could never imagine.”

A small town kid from rural New Jersey, Zander grew up geographically close to the towering spires of Manhattan. Talented older cousins were prime influences as he absorbed the music of legendary artists from far before his time. A competitive athlete in high school, he moved to New York where modeling paid the bills and set the stage for his journey. “I developed a certain type of fearlessness,” Zander remembers. “When you get that hardened skin it prepares you well for the music business.”

While being in front of the camera came easily enough, it was not within his creative control. Music was. After early successes with his East Coast band, Zander went solo. Fate connected him to multiple Grammy-winning songwriter Holly Knight and he traveled to Los Angeles to write and record “Temptation,” the song that he recalls, “…changed everything.”

His distinctive voice captured the attention of producer RedOne, hot off the success of Lady Gaga. RedOne introduced Zander to Jimmy Iovine at Interscope Records and a deal was made. When an executive shakeup reordered the label, Zander shifted to Capitol Records. But his major label launch was not to be.

“I had to get tough or die,” Zander remembers. Social media was key. “I was getting an instant response. Rather than going through the chain, here was the artist and the audience. When I sing a song on social media the message is immediate, to thousands of people all over the world. I started dedicating myself to this connection.”

Forthcoming, a planned series of singles will constitute Zander’s sonic messages to a fan base that now stretches across continents and oceans. With the brotherhood of a band that has traveled with him to Los Angeles, he will be staging a fully realized live performance to showcase the edgy accessibility of his artistry.

“I truly feel like I am a lion that’s been stuck in a cage,” concludes Zander. “My story is not a sob story. I’ve been incredibly fortunate. A lot of incredibly talented artists haven’t had the luck I’ve had. I’ve been so close, but I’ve never had that chance. I feel fortunate to not be jaded. Now it’s press play, balls to the wall. I’m reaching toward the moon.”
