Five Eyed Hand’s Chris Zanardi New Solo Album, Fall Tour

ALL-STAR CAST CONTRIBUTES TO ENCHANTING TRANSMISSIONS

Chris Zanardi, “Z”, the guitar player for Five Eyed Hand, has released a new album, Transmissions. The album was recorded from 2009-2011 in various studios with an assortment of top notch musicians contributing to each track. Co-produced by Z and Agent 19, Transmissions features a wide array of instrumental compositions with many different textures and instruments that take the listener on a ride from start to finish. The mastering of Transmissions was done by legendary engineer Cookie Marceno at OTR studios.

In addition to Z on guitar (and other instruments), Transmissions features a super star lineup of musicians including: Eric Levy on keyboards (Garaj Mahal, Night Ranger); Asher Fulero on keyboards (Everyone Orchestra, Halo Refuser); Cecil “P’nut” Daniels on midi horns (special guest w/Widespread Panic); Mark “Murph” Murphy on bass (Izabella, Huckle); Derek Bodkin on drums (Five Eyed Hand, Hovering Breadcat); Jamey Brill on drums (Somethingfour); Jae Hendrickson on drums (Seconds On End, Bacon); Robbie Planting on guitar (Bacon); Jeb Taylor on bass (Five Eyed Hand); Mikey “The Fiddler” Henderson on electric violin (Five Eyed Hand); Adam Huntress on drums and bass (Hallway Ballers); Andrew Ferren on saxophone (Doctor Oscillator); Mo Sardella on drums (Sol Rising) and Sam Flot doing spoken word on “Mayan Ruins” (Gazelles).

A video of the album’s track “Inchworm” featuring Eric Levy, Mark “Murph” Murphy, and Mo Sardella was filmed and edited by award-winning videographer Dan Friedman (Bob Weir’s TRI Studios) and can be seen below.


When not performing with Five Eyed Hand, for the last couple years, Z has been working on his project High Beamz. High Beamz is comprised of an assortment of talented (mostly) Bay Area musicians with the one constant being Z on guitar. The band primarily plays instrumental music with many originals and some cover songs. Z will be touring with High Beamz up and down the West Coast to promote his new album.
