John Zipperer CD Release Party

Grant R. Brimhall Library, 1401 E Janss Rd, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362

Singer-songwriter John Zipperer announces a February 25, 2014, release date for his new CD, Full Circle, on his Ziptunes imprint. Distribution is through CD Baby and the album will be available at Amazon, iTunes and other quality outlets. He’ll celebrate the release of Full Circle with a special show on March 1st at the Thousand Oaks Library as part of their “Live at the Library” concert series.

This special evening will feature an additional artist performance from Ernest Troost.

The 13 tracks on Full Circle include a dozen originals, as well as his unique take on the Van Morrison classic, “Brown-Eyed Girl,” slowing down the tempo to create an even higher focus on the lyrics, which have special relevance to Zipperer. “This recording is a reflection of the love I lost due to my own failings,” he says. “It’s a look back at a wonderful girl whom I hurt through the blindness and the stupidity of my youth. I’ve always loved this song and Van Morrison. I played this in cover bands for years. It always struck me how sad the lyric sounded. I hope Van hears it and likes it.”

The rest of the songs on the new album, which was produced by Nick Kirgo at Disarray Studios and feature backing from members of John’s regular touring band, are very personal in their genesis, yet universal in appeal, dealing with love lost and found, as well as the joy of life, itself.

$20 donation (all proceeds go to the artists). No refunds, no exchanges.
