Biography

Zallen (aka singer/songwriter Michael Jones) is a native Los Angeles musician and visual artist. He has been performing professionally in numerous bands since the age of fifteen when he co-formed the band “Eulogy” with Rusty Anderson (top session musician; and Paul McCartney’s present lead guitarist). Eulogy won the battle of the bands at the Pasadena Civic and produced the song “When You’re Young” for LA’s powerhouse radio station KNAC.

After Eulogy, Zallen formed the band Eclipse and continued to tour and entertain packed high schools and college stadiums with his flamboyant stage antics.

Then Zallen, along with Daniel Van Patten and Chris Velasco formed a new band called Zicko Glick, an early incarnation of what eventually became the top selling Berlin (“Sex,” “Take My Breath Away,” and numerous other hits). Daniel went on to produce the first Berlin album.

Zallen co-composed, produced, and performed an independent release with his friend Billy Paul under the band name Bozart in the late 80’s, garnering him attention from Prince’s label Paisley Park and Janet Jackson’s producers, Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam. The sound could be described as The Beatles meet Prince.

Zallen’s band “Cryin’ Out Loud,” co-formed with his friend Steven James, was named Band of the Month by Los Angeles radio station KLOS (Mark & Brian) and the songs “This City” and “Handguns and Home Survival” were featured on the Local Licks program.

The song “This City” was featured in the film “Nature of the Beast,” staring Eric Roberts and Lance Henriksen, and directed by Victor Salva, who’s other movies include “Powder”, “Jeepers Creepers”, and “Peaceful Warrior”.
