Forget Me Not
Concept established their musical collective out of a true joint passion for music. The duo formed in the spring of 2010 with the goal to create original music blending the unique styles that Shiri Zorn and Yoav Land each brought with them. What emerged was an engaging combination of blues, jazz, folk and rock. The band, based out of Seattle, WA, has recently released it's first CD "Forget Me Not" with highly positive reviews and ever growing sales. The songs carry western and Mediterranean flavors all at the same time. Yoav Land, who composed all the materials, is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger, composer and a songwriter. From a very early age he was exposed to jazz, soul, rock and Middle Eastern music. His influences include a wide range of musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Led Zeppelin, Gary Moore, Yngwie Malmsteen, Van Helen, Steve Vai, Paco De-Lucia, Al Dimeola, J.S Bach and various world music artists. His broad range of composition styles is reflected in the CD, where each song is a real work of art. Shiri Zorn's vocals draw the listeners in as the CD unfolds itself. Her versatile voice allows her to add unique color and tone to each and every song. Throughout her musical career, Shiri was inspired by musicians from all across the spectrum. Amongst her main influences are Jazz vocalists such as Carmen McRae, Nancy Wilson and Sarah Vaughan alongside instrumentalists such as Chet Baker, Miles Davis and Elvis Costello. Both Land and Zorn ("Concept" members) have lived in various countries over the years and were exposed to multiple cultures. Each member brings his/her own experience and concepts to the mix. This is what makes "Forget Me Not" an extraordinary piece which takes the listener on a special emotional journey.
