"PowerPop - King of the World"

Kaz's music includes a dance atmosphere without being a techno or hip hop artist. Groovy tunes coming up from the world of funk, AOR, soul and interesting pop music. I suppose that Kaz's personality could fit in various music venues but I personally prefer his melodic rock side that offers a different approach of his cheerful side.

"106.7 FM Melbourne, Australia"

"Greetings from one of the biggest independent music stations here. We have just received your cd “King Of The World” . Now your cd, man this is just the way to settle down and be washed away by a groove that is just plain coooool. The album just gets better from track to track, when l looked for the hidden weaker tracks, hey man there are none at all, the quality is from track one to track15. You have taken some classic Rock ‘n’ Roll sounds and added the cool sound of R&B with a distinctive Soul groove. How could you not like this album, it calls out for a party. I have played the cd numerous times in my office and love the fact that whenever you come to my office a different track is playing and will be different to the last. You have won us over with this impressive cd, yes definitely impressed us all. We are the cities leading independent music station and already the feedback from all who have heard me playing the cd has been wonderful. Your band’s talent and sheer love of the music comes through every note played. Here in my office when listening to your cd we all agreed that it is refreshing and innovative with wonderful singing, instrumentation and compositions. Here at PBS we cover a very large range of music, everything from Bluegrass to Reggae, and our Rock based shows are some of our biggest shows here with a very loyal audience. Our daily listenership exceeds 600000 and our web site generates in excess of 6 million hits per month, you can check us out at www.pbsfm.org.au, our site live streams and provides an archive of the past twelve months. Allocating your cd was extremely easy as l have placed you with the number 1 music based independent breakfast show that just so happens to be on our grid , “The Breakfast Spread” with Lyndelle, Gus and Andrew Monday to Friday 6 to 9am. They will provide you with the best exposure in this city. On behalf of all of us, (by the way all of the announcers here are volunteers), l want to thank-you for your generosity and of course your great music but also to say welcome to Melbourne’s leading independent music station that has no play-listing or interference from government departments or multi nationals. "

Regards,
Peter

KAZ offers accessible music with optimistic messages about love and dealing positively with life's challenges. His attitude is a refreshing change of pace amid so much cynicism and angst in music these days.

"I write all my songs from my heart and about real people or events. It is difficult for anyone to feel sad or depressed around me. People tell me they are rejuvenated after listening to my music. Even on my song "Grim Reaper" the message and the story is a positive one. This is because I believe in love, peace, and happiness. I know that sounds sappy but it is the truth," Kaz.
