Zink Music is a record label concentrating on the classic Westcoast sound and the soft and smooth side of Melodic Rock/AOR, we do both original albums and re-releases.
On March 12, 2008 we released our first full-length albums; first out was Peter Friestedt with the follow-up to his LA Project, it features amongst others Joseph Williams, Bill Champlin, Randy Goodrum, Lou Pardini and Bill Cantos. We also have Daniel Andersson on board; his debut album “Days in L.A.” was released on the very same date. Daniel’s album is true to the classic Westcoast sound, be ready to be amazed! We also released the brand new studio album from Westcoast legend Robbie Dupree; the album is entitled “Time and Tide” and it saw the light of day on the Zink Music label on April 23, 2008.
Just recently we had yet another duo release and we cannot say how proud we are to have Jay Graydon’s and Randy Goodrum’s new project JaR on the label, nothing else than an album that is true to the genre and that is echoing of classic Steely Dan! The other album that was released on the very same date (October 31, 2008) is Sweden’s own Smooth Reunion, a cool album and as the band name reveals it is smooth and slick to perfection, mixing jazz and classic Westcoast in the finest of ways.
On December 10, 2008 we released the European edition of former Chicago singer Bill Champlin’s latest studio album “No Place Left To Fall”, his first in 13 years. It is packed with a bonus DVD and features such eminent musician’s as Peter Cetera, Steve Lukather, Bruce Gaitsch and Michael English - this album will not disappoint!
On April 1, 2009 we released the album "Fly Away - The Songs of David Foster", an album celebrating the song-writing of David Foster. Featuring the man himself as well as heroes like Bill Champlin, Robbie Dupree, Bill LaBounty, Bill Cantos, Frank Adahl, Arnold McCuller and many others.
On May 21, 2010 we will release the definitive edition of the first LA Project album from Peter Friestedt, with a reworked booklet and overall updated design and new liner-notes plus four bonus tracks we make this much sought after album available again. On the same date we will also release the debut album "Högt Spel" from Swedish legendary band Licence, originally released back in 1981 and hailed as Sweden's answer to Airplay! Now for the first time on CD and with two bonus tracks.
