What happens when you throw a polished American Idol contestant into Philadelphia’s raunchy DIY music scene?
You get the band Z by Z who has been turning heads with their cutting-edge brand of pop music that mixes elements of rock and soul. Formed by singer/songwriter and American Idol season XV contestant Harrison Cohen, Z by Z's catalog is akin to hearing the funk-pop sounds of Maroon 5 filtered through the slick bravado of Spoon and The Arctic Monkeys. In October 2017, Z by Z performed their song "No Time" on iHeartRadio’s Radio 104.5 FM, Philadelphia’s premier alternative rock station. Cohen’s songwriting has garnered praise from platinum recording artists such as Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban. After hearing “No Time” Lopez commented, “I really liked it, I felt like I could hear that song on the radio.”
Z by Z’s debut album, Escape Route will be released as three EP’s over the course of the fall and winter through 2018 and 2019. Escape Route asks the question, “How did we become prisoners to our minds and can we break free?” with each EP describing a different phase in the cycle. The project was recorded at Big Mama’s Studio in Old Kensington, Philadelphia with producer Chris Baglivo.
