ZFM logoDrew Fortier, the band’s guitarist, stated that: “Zen From Mars has been our secret baby for a long time now. I am so relieved and excited to finally start getting it out there.

Bassist Chip Z’Nuff stated: “Great song, Rockstar singer, 2 solid guitarists, brilliant drummer, world renowned bassist, foxy keyboardist = Supergroup!”

The band’s vocalist, Stephen Shareaux stated: “ZFM is purely a passion project, I just really love this music! We had a deep connection musically from the word go, Drew and I! Plus he was just so damn persistent! (laughs)”

Kate Catalina, the band’s keyboardist stated: “It has been a really thrilling process watching this band come to life and hearing musical concepts turned into beautiful, heavy, transcending songs. The contrast alone is mesmerizing: each member operates from a different genre, but we all met in the same land of songwriting and performance.”
