2015 Dave Kerzner – New World

New World is the debut solo album by American musician, songwriter, producer and sound designer Dave Kerzner. This is Kerzner’s first album since his departure from the band Sound of Contact, and was developed in 2014. The album features numerous collaborations with established artists such as Fernando Perdomo, Steve Hackett, Nick D’Virgilio, Durga McBroom and Keith Emerson. Two versions of the album were developed: a standard edition and a two-disc double album deluxe edition. The former was released in December 2014, and the latter was released in January 2015.

The album was produced and mixed by Kerzner. Most of the album was recorded remotely with reference tracks developed by Kerzner using music software technology from his sound production company Sonic Reality. The tracks were then re-recorded by other artists at remote locations and sent back to Kerzner’s studio in Miami for mixing. Veteran mixing engineer Tom Lord-Alge mixed the album’s first single release, “Stranded.”
