Atlas Music Signs Up - and - Coming L.A. Band, STREET JOY
Atlas Music Publishing is pleased to announce that it has signed a long-term co-publishing agreement with Los Angeles-based duo, Street Joy. Comprised of guitarist, bassist, and lead vocalist, Jason DeMayo and drummer, Scott Zimmerman, Street Joy blends a diverse array of influences-from classic rock to experimental pop to jazz-to create music that feels at once distinct and familiar. Later this summer, the will release three 7" singles on their own Trick Pony Records label and already, the music world is buzzing with anticipation.
Jason DeMayo shares Atlas's enthusiasm, saying, "Having the opportunity to work with the veteran publishers that make up Atlas is enough of an honor, but combine that with their hospitality and warmth and it becomes a dream come true. The fact that they believe in us so early on speaks volumes about their commitment to supporting music. We really couldn't be more excited for this partnership."
Atlas' Kristen Bushnell, Sr. Manager of Synchronization, likens the band's music to a "hug from an old friend." She continues: "After my first meeting with Jason and Scott, I felt like we had been friends for years. The duo's authenticity and passion for their craft truly shine through in their music, and listeners of all generations will identify with songs that are fresh, but also nostalgic. At Atlas, we view our signings not only as creative alliances, but also as partnerships where both parties can grow and learn from each other. I could not be more excited to welcome Street Joy to the Atlas family. Expect big things from these guys!"
