Sun & Sky Records announces the release of the new single “Friends” on August 7, 2020, by CZN, the winners of this year’s Canadian Family’s Got Talent. “Friends” is about connecting with someone on such a deep level that you want to take the friendship to the next level. A relatable topic among listeners, “Friends” captures attention with its upbeat summery pop vibe and driving rhythmic pre-hook from band member CJ Capital that leads into a catchy, melodic hook in which Seth Zosky and Matthew Novary take the lead. Needless to say, this single showcases their unique soundscape meshing R&B, Rap, and Pop all into one.

As the winners of the 1st season of Canadian Family’s Got Talent, CZN has already enjoyed tremendous success in kick-starting their career. Selected by Simon Cowell who awarded the group the prestigious Golden Buzzer, he said: “ I think you’re very current. I think you’re very cool, I think you’re very likable and most importantly really really talented, creative, inventive.” This year alone, CZN has gone on to be selected as participants for Canadian Music Week’s Jim Beam National Talent Search, become the chosen artist to be promoted by RBCxMusic #FirstUp, and awarded the Commercial Performance Award from the prestigious Sheridan College Institute.

Managed by Paul Farberman, CZN is eager to take their music to the next level by releasing “Friends” with Sun & Sky Records. “After CZN was selected by Simon Cowell as the winners of Canadian Family’s Got Talent, one of my dear friends in Toronto called me and said I had to check them out. I looked online and I was really blown away by their voices and how they blended different styles of music into their own fresh sound,” says Farberman. “Our journey together has just begun. I am really excited about their future and helping them get their music heard around the world.”

CZN will be teasing their new single with a live show on August 1st as part of the Toronto Shines Drive-In Event Series at Ontario Place. More info can be found HERE and tickets can be bought HERE.
