Zombies lead singer Colin Blunstone was born in Hertfordshire. He met the other members of the band at school in St Albans. After attracting a large local following, they were offered a recording contract by Decca Records which resulted in the first single, ‘She’s Not There’ becoming a worldwide hit. Three years on the road culminated in The Zombies final album, the highly acclaimed Odessey and Oracle.
Colin’s solo career began with One Year on Epic Records, from which the hit single ‘Say You Don’t’ Mind’ was taken. Two more albums on Epic followed: Ennismore and Journey which spawned the hits, ‘I Don’t Believe In Miracles’ and ‘How Can We Dare To Be Wrong’.
Singer-songwriter Bruce Sudano has a storied history in the world of music. The tale includes an early songwriting mentor in Tommy James, chart success in the 1970s with his NYC neighbourhood bands (Alive N Kickin’ – ‘Tighter Tighter’ and Brooklyn Dreams – ‘Heaven Knows’), and hearing his songs recorded by iconic artists like Donna Summer (‘Bad Girls’), Dolly Parton (‘Starting Over Again’) and Michael & Jermaine Jackson (‘Tell Me I’m Not Dreaming’).
Today, Bruce mainly writes for himself, and has found his voice expressing the internal challenges central to everyday life. His 2016 release, With Angels On A Carousel, was a heartfelt farewell to his late wife Donna Summer, which he followed up in 2017 with 21st Century World, an album filled with hard questions, some well-aimed finger pointing and poignant observations about the human experience. Billboard Magazine has now premiered Bruce’s latest single ‘Forbidden Fruit’, a “stark folky” duet with NYC singer Dina Regine, produced by Mike Montali of the band Hollis Brown.
