Prozzak

 

When animated band Prozzäk burst onto the scene in 1998, a musical phenomenon was born. The duo of Simon and Milo were the brainchild of creators Jay Levine and James Bryan McCollum, two members of the critically acclaimed multi-platinum act, The Philosopher Kings. The duo are now ready to take 2017 by storm with a new single, Love Me Tinder, to be released on February 3rd, and their first new album in over a decade called Forever 1999, slated for a March 31, 2017 release date. Simon and Milo will hit the road in support of the album with Canadian dates across the country.
Their debut album, Hot Show (Sony) followed Simon’s search for love around the globe, set to infectious dance/pop songs. It was a commercial and critical blockbuster, going multi-platinum, producing chart topping videos; including 2 MuchMusic number ones (Sucks To Be You, and Strange Disease), as well as being nominated for 5 JUNO Awards. Prozzäk made a big impact internationally. In the US, the video for Sucks To Be You charted on MTV2, and they had top 40 hits in Spain (Hot Show single), and Turkey (Strange Disease).

In 2000, Prozzäk released their second album, Saturday People, which went platinum and was nominated for a JUNO award for Best Pop Album. The duo performed on the JUNO awards that year, reaching over a million viewers, and embarked on a national arena headlining tour. Jay and James then took a few years to focus their time on production work, including Fefe Dobson’s platinum debut album (Island/Universal).
In 2005 Prozzäk released their third album Cruel Cruel World, featuring the track When I Think Of You. Jay and James then decided it was the right moments in their careers to devote their time to individual projects. Jay moved to New York and then LA to pursue his career as a music executive. He ran labels supported by Columbia, Warner and Island Def Jam, created music for over 50 commercials and currently has a Broadway musical in production. James went on to co-write and produce hits for Divine Brown (Old School Love) and Nelly Furtado‘s Spanish album, Mi Plan, which won a 2011 Latin Grammy. He spent the next 5 years in London, UK, writing and recording with James Blunt, Jessie J, Yuna, Olly Murs and more.

 

In the summer of 2015, Prozzäk performed a sold-out reunion show at the Atomic Lollipop festival in Toronto and the overwhelming fun of the experience inspired Jay and James to “get the band back together”. A new single, Baby I Need Your Love (Pussy Cat), was released, and performances at various festivals such as Toronto’s NXNE and Victoria’s Rifflandia followed. The duo is ready to get back on the road with new music. Prozzäk is back!
