Artist: Armen at the Bazaar, Album: Noor, Song: Fire

Armen at the Bazaar is a man by the name of Armen Bazarian.  He is from Toronto but now based in Montreal.  If you are looking for an example of the term "One Man Band", you need not look further than this guy.  After playing years in band settings and finding the full potential of his artistic expression unfulfilled.  He figured out a way to become a multi-instrumentalist in the studio and began composing and producing his own work.  He released his debut EP in 2010 and followed it up this year with his second EP, Noor.  To raise the bar a step further, he took his act live.  You can check out some live footage of his recent CD release party at the Silver Dollar in Toronto where he is performing the song, Fire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZxNbeF59pk).  Both of his releases are worth seeking out and should appeal to the pop sensible listener.  He is currently playing shows in Vermont and should be making his way back into Canada in the next week or so.  You can follow him at http://www.myspace.com/armenatthebazaar.  You can purchase Noor on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
