Zameer | There
is something to be said about a musician that has gigged alongside
John Mayer in the Bahamas and has toured from Norway to California
before the release of his debut album. Meet Zameer, a world-class
singer/songwriter of South Asian origin, with his debut album
slated for release in April 2009.
Zameer's influences range from
bands like Wham and N'Sync, Metallica and Alice In Chains, all
the way to Eric Clapton and Sting. The result has spun Zameer's
music into a pop/rock fiber that has attracted five-time Grammy
award-winning producer, Steve Thompson, to produce his first
album (Steve has produced Madonna, John Lennon and several others).
In the past, Zameer's unique musical style has led him to an
invitation to exhibit his craft at a music industry showcase
at the Fairmont Royal York during Canadian Music Week 2008.
Zameer's debut single 'Win
or Defeat', produced in partnership with Canada's Paralympic
Team, has created waves with its regular airplay on MuchMusic
and MTV. With the music video starring Canada's Paralympic Gold
Medalists, partial sales from Zameer's song are being channelled
towards the Canadian Paralympic Foundation.
Drawn to music at a very early
age, Zameer has always tried to make the most of his love for
melody. Zameer spent eight months studying the mathematical ingredients
of some of this era's hit music. His research paper, titled 'Auditory
Scene Analysis of 20th Century Popular Music' was published by
the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the
University of Western Ontario.
