CLEVELAND – March 1, 2016 – Next Tuesday, March 8th, Cleveland singer/songwriter Megan Zurkey releases a brand new original single, “Round & Round,” following the release of their cover of Ed Sheeran’s, “Thinking Out Loud.”
Recorded in January at Jim Stewart Recording in Cleveland, drummer Ken Schopf, guitarist Zach Catania, bassist Adam Orin and singer/songwriter Megan Zurkey made “Round & Round” with many classic instrument including a 1940’s-50’s drum kit, 1976 bass, and 1967 guitar.
In the past year or so since her last release, Zurkey has graced stages across the city from the Hard Rock Rocksino to the Alex Theatre at the 9 to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She’s performed at Brite Winter, Heights Music Hop, and NEO Cycle and performed numerous national anthems at Cleveland Indians games at Progressive Field.
“I love performing. I love writing. After completing four other projects over the past five years, I couldn’t wait to work with the amazing Jim Stewart on my next one,” said Megan. “As soon as I wrote a new single that I loved, I had to get my band in his studio. It was a couple of the best days of my life in the studio with them. It feels so good to play music with talented people that just ‘get’ you.”
Zurkey worked with all Cleveland area musicians and artists. Mastering was done at Cauliflower Audio, and her album artwork is a Sian Wright original designed by artist/musician Jenna Fournier from Nights. The song will be featured on NEO Rocks radio and Cellar Door Cleveland to name a few.
“Round & Round” will be available through all major online music retailers on March 8th. In the meantime, check out their recent release of “Thinking Out Loud” for a taste of their new work.
