"WHERE I BELONG" DEBUTED AT #1 IN CANADA; U.S. RELEASE FOLLOWS RECENT PERFORMANCE AT FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE JAZZ DE MONTREAL

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Highly acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Bobby Bazini is set to release his debut U.S. album, "Where I Belong," on August 12 through Capitol Music Group's Strange Cargo/Manhattan label.  The album debuted at #1 on the Canadian Albums chart after its May 26 release in his home country and remains in the Top 5 after seven weeks.  Most recently, Bazini performed in front of 60,000 people at the 35th Annual Festival International de Jazz de Montreal.

"The recording of 'Where I Belong' has been a tremendous experience and has allowed me to work with some truly amazing and talented people," said Bazini.  "I'm thrilled to not only have debuted at #1 in Canada, but to also now be able to bring an album I care about so much to fans in the U.S." 

"Where I Belong" found Bazini teaming up with legendary producer Larry Klein and recording at the historic Village Studios, a studio that has hosted some of his heroes such as Bob Dylan and Otis Redding.  The album is also filled with some of Bazini's favorite musicians including, Booker T Jones (organ), Jack Ashford (percussion) and Jay Bellerose (drums).  "Where I Belong" will be released in the U.S. under Capitol Music Group's Strange Cargo/Manhattan label, the famed division that has signed with the likes of the Beatles and each of the band's members, as well as Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, David Bowie, Frank Sinatra and Pink Floyd.

"Bobby is an extraordinary talent.  It's incredibly rare in this era of American Idol and The Voice to come across a young man of Bobby's age who has gone the extra mile and not only assimilated his influences and made them  his own, but has developed his own voice as a songwriter," said producer Larry Klein. "I assembled a group of legendary musicians to work with on this album, and Bobby left us all shaking our heads after each take. This is just the beginning for him."

In 2010, Bazini's musical career climbed at a rapid pace with his very first single "I Wonder," which topped the Québec charts for nine straight weeks at #1 in the very same year, holding off challenges for chart supremacy by teen sensation Justin Bieber and fellow Quebecer Rufus Wainwright.  The single was featured on "Better in Time,"  the album that launched his career in Canada  and secured the attention of contemporary music fans around the globe, in addition to securing him two Juno® Award nominations for "New Artist of the Year" and "Pop Album of the Year in 2011."
