Blazar is a collective of top producers and writers, collaborating with artist-producer Jerad Finck. The array of top-notch artists is formed by Steven Solomon (Wrote Jame’s Arthurs Hit “Say You won’t Let Go”), Denny White (Tiesto, The Fray), Anthony Resta (Duran Duran, Collective Soul), Troy Welstadt (Pink), Jay Condiotti (Next Top Model, ScoreKeepers Composer), Hans Dekline * Grammy Winning Mastering Engineer), Jake Newton (Sleeping Wolf), David Filice (Run DMC), and DAXSEN (Tiesto).
“I’ve been touring and making a living as an Indie Artist for a few years now. My last single as Jerad Finck sold 57,000 copiers and debuted on Billboard. From all of that I signed a label deal with AntiFragile Records under Tom Sarig, and he offered me the chance to do what I wanted.”
Finck shares the backdrop about the genesis of Blazar and their debut album, then he continues: “I wanted to make a record old school, really developing the songs bar by bar, with all of the coolest cats and producers I’ve met over the years in something entirely new, a collaborative effort of rad people with creative freedom. This has been a dream of mine to do, and over the last couple years I have been working on this.”
So Finck created Blazar, gathering around him all his friends and colleagues, who by combining their creative flair have completed a full album, and ‘Better’ is the first single off of it.
Feverishly contagious and compelling, ‘Better’ presents itself as a top-quality production. A perfectly composed number of electro pop that moves dynamically by bringing in funk and rock elements, made even more memorable by the succession of uplifting moments full of freshness.
Here it is evident how Finck and his fellow friends know what they are doing, and they are doing it tremendously well. Call structures are always resolved in an impeccable way with answers that always give the right caesura to each phrasing, sharing basic elements that, however, are always proposed with some new details.
‘Better’ lights up with a synth pop magic, with which Blazar brings a breath of fresh air throughout the indie scene and beyond. And if this is the premise, we can’t wait to listen to the entire album.
Listen now to ‘Better’, the debut single from Blazar, available for streaming on all the major digital platforms.
