Fractura . . . .323-962-3129 . . . . Fractura can be defined as a drastic impact which results in a breaking apart of elements and drawing their strengths from conquering their fractures. Fractura also represents the shattering of false expectations, throwing off the chains and boundaries that limit possibilities. The members of the L.A. band, Fractura, are searching for something ”new” and ”brutal” along with ”commitment” and ”musical vision.” Lead singer Gabby states ”We strive towards an energetic, contagious groove with an emotional, physical, and fun emphasis. I like the idea of representing a heavier, stronger side of woman. I think it’s a fairly unexplored territory. Women are more empowered now, and we like the idea of representing that strength. Our music is heavy and we get to the point. You either love or hate what we do.”

Z . . . .310-316-8828 .Frankie Anthony .310-767-0576 pgr. . .With the release of the debut Jamco album "Keepers of The Sign," a new chapter has begun in Z's history. "I am an exile from the 80's," says Robert Z., "That's when people gave a shit about what you sounded like & not what you wore. You can't fool people when they put a CD on their stereo system." Featuring strong, powerful & classical hard rock, "Keepers of The Sign" is a pure example of Z's musical force & is filled with no-nonsense rock 'n' roll songs. Bucking the superficial trendiness, the story of Z's career has been one of fierce determination & a desire to do things their own way. The band surfaced in Pasadena in the spring of 1995.
