Imperial Z

About Imperial Z: Founding member of Imperial Z, Dan Zacharias, honed his chops playing coffee shops & clubs in Boulder, CO. He moved to Los Angeles where he teamed up with producer/electronic artist Appogee (known for his experimental music & remixes of Bright Eyes and Japanese artist Kitaro). The debut EP - 'Starz' - caught the attention of LA station 95.5 KLOS who featured 4 of the songs.

In 2006, Jay Skinner from Appogee asked Dan Z to sing on some "tech-country" songs. The collaboration came to be known as Commuter, and 10 songs later, their debut album - 'Brightly Shining, Dimly Lit' - was born. Kevin Bronson from the LA Times said the album “is a hunk of soundtrack-ready pop that's three mood swings waiting to happen”. Their tune ‘Chapters’ was featured on the season 3 finale of 'The O.C.' and was included on the Nov. 06 Paste Magazine CD. 'Forfeit' is featured on the soundtrack for the film 'Blink' along with The Walkmen, Grandaddy and Sound Team. Listen for Commuter on Gary Calamar's show 'The Open Road' on 89.9 KCRW (LA) and Christian B’s show ‘Headtrip’ on Indie 103.1 (LA).

‘That Far & This Close’ is the latest album from Imperial Z. It features performances from ALFRED WOODY (Usher/Commuter/Overnight Lows) on drums, JAWNEE BURKES (Piel/That Noise/Woven/Rickie Lee Jones) on bass, TIKI LEWIS (Piel/Rickie Lee Jones) on vocals, JAY SKINNER (Appogee/That Noise/Tiki Lewis), CHRIS LOWERY (Shakira/Wyclef Jean) on trumpet and MATT ZACHARIAS on piano/keys.
