Sara Wasserman Joins That Other Label/Pacific Coast Jazz

San Diego-based independent record label, That Other Label, a division of Pacific Coast Jazz, announces the signing of singer, Sara Wasserman. The agreement anticipates the release of her new CD, Solid Ground, slated for a street date of June 16, 2009.

"Meeting Sara Wasserman put a new energy into our company; the forming of That Other Label, a division of Pacific Coast Jazz, was done specifically to house artists that are outside of the jazz realm, and Sara is our first artist to enter that side of the house, " says Donna Nichols, founder and president of That Other Label/Pacific Coast Jazz. "What made it so perfect for Sara to be our first TOL artist is that her album reflects both jazz overtones and also shows that her pop sensibility is strong - and she also knows how to rock!" Nichols' label has teamed up with the publicity team headed by Bob Merlis at MFH Publicity in Los Angeles for access to international media. Bookings will be handled by Brandon Mann at Crescendo Artists, based in Boulder, CO. The radio promotion component of the Sara Wasserman Solid Ground team will be determined in the near future.

Sara's debut album, Solid Ground, is a journey marked by both individual self-discovery and collaborative artistry. As the daughter of Rob Wasserman, legendary Grammy Award-winning bassist, she was literally born to sing. Over the course of the past seven years, her family's roots and shoots led her to musical collaborations with Lou Reed, Christian McBride, Aaron Neville, Vernon Reed, DJ Logic and Stephen Perkins. The result is Solid Ground, an album of songs that is both the reflection of a beautiful creative soul and a brilliant showcase for a truly spectacular voice.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the album will be donated to the Chandler Sky Foundation in support of Casa de Milagros, a home for orphaned and abandoned children in Cusco, Peru.

Pacific Coast Jazz, founded in 2003, is a boutique jazz label that also offers music management services and international distribution through their partner MVD Audio. For information on That Other Label or Pacific Coast Jazz visit: or .
