Zdiar Band Logo - Progressive Rock, Pop

Zdiar is pronounced Sdeeeaaarrr.

Zdiar is a progressive/electronic/rock/pop duo consisting of Brian Johnstone and Ralf Seidel. The music is an interesting concoction of styles from two countries, cultures and influences and gives Zdiar a unique sound in modern music which defies classification.

Combining Ralf leanings to electronic influences from electro-pop, film soundtrack and ambient atmospheres with Brian’s influences of live rock, piano, jazz fusion and soundtracks Zdiar music is a true hybrid bringing the best from many styles but cleverly used to produce an identity of it’s own.

The songs are catchy, melodic with great arrangements but always contain a few surprises. This sound will appeal to people who like good melodies, lyrics and atmospheres with great songwriting but with something a little different from top 40 and predictable radio tunes. Accessible and tuneful but innovative and refreshing would be a Zdiar trademark.
