In mid 2008, singer 2Blue and guitar player Claver Menezes got together to form Zedde. Trevor Berchman was soon brought on board as drummer and Dee Saikia as bass player. Some headlining slots at college festivals, a few radio shows, and a dozen club gigs later, their first single ‘Mumbai’ won the prestigious ‘Anthem of the Year’ title at the world’s largest indie music awards: AVIMA 2010. The video for the song frequented all popular music channels, including VH1 and MTV India, and climbed to #1 on the Youtube India charts within 24 hours of upload. The recognition opened new doors and hence, hours on the road replaced those in the studio. But it wasn't long before newer tracks were released as singles on iTunes and Amazon, and subsequently as caller tunes on the Indian cellular network [sms ZEDDE to 54646 for details]. Shortly thereafter, Zedde was voted as the ‘Best Band’ at the ArtistAloud.com Awards 2010. This is perhaps attributable to the band’s undying passion to perform original music while carrying forward the legacy of their hard rock predecessors.
Zedde is a band best served live! Make it your own, get rocked – A to Zedde!!
2Blue – Vocals
2Blue is a dynamite on stage. With influences of Ian Gillan, Joey Tempest, and Gary Cherone, he has enthralled fans wherever he has performed. In the words of his fans, "That voice is liquid gold!"
Claver – Guitar
It took two decades of obsessive practice and the influences of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Paul Gilbert to transform Claver into the guitar virtuoso that he is today. Watch him play. Enrich your life.
Deepu – Bass
Deepu’s influences, right from Billy Sheehan to Jaco Pastorius, have brought a new dimension to Zedde's sound. Also a fine guitar player and vocalist, he has more surprises up his sleeve than meets the eye.
Trevor – Drums
Influences of Alex Van Halen and Dave Lombardo are unmistakable in Trevor's playing which boasts his rock-solid command over odd-time phrasing. It's a wonder that he's a drummer only by accident.
