If you like the tunes, help yourself to a free download my debut album at http://ziahassan.bandcamp.com/album/grow-slow

Zia Hassan - Born and raised in Washington DC, story-telling folk artist Zia Hasan has been writing, producing, and singing his own brand of folk music for nearly a decade. Many singer-songwriters aspire to play their music in stadiums to throngs of adoring fans. Zia would rather form a bond with a small group in a local bar or a coffeeshop. It makes sense. His songs are stories drawn though melody, drenched in the sound of a wooden guitar, encased in a soothing and unique voice. He balances his set by playing acoustic songs, mixed in with captivating electronics/live looping.

Twice, his music has made the front page on TheSixtyOne.com, a community based music ranking sites (http://thesixtyone.com/ziahassan).

Zia's 2009 debut, Grow Slow, can be purchased on Amazon MP3, iTunes, eMusic, or on Bandcamp, where you can name your own price for the record, with no mimimum. He is also a candidate for the Strathmore Arts Center's 2010 Artist in Residence Program.

Praise for Grow Slow: "able to deliver songs ... that are both interesting, and accessible" - Call It Folk, music blog, "Zia has a magical talent of putting touching and provoking lyrics to any situation. His uncanny ability to put himself in anyone else's shoes and write a song about their emotions is phenomenal." - Diane Hirschfeld

      T61 was a community based music ranking sites. Now basically nothing is reaching the homepage except the ones the owners wants to, so it's a shame such a great place went to something that bad so quickly, huh? :)

        Wow, I knew the layout/design changed, but I wasn't aware that the power given to the users had been decreased. Well, here's to a new journey on Uvumi then. Worthwhile so far!
