    Classic Rock Music Lover - Lost and now Found story ....

    The Lost Years"  ZEALMEinc

    This is a collection of songs that were composed and recorded in the ZEALMEinc studios in 1988 but were never released.  

    Once upon a time, the lead guitarist /producer of the band known as “Zeal” aka Anthony C. was at the top of his career.  His life long dreamed of having a rock band and record label was materialized.  He and some close friends and few others were playing and having time of their lives living the wild life playing as much as possible.

    Then one day while he was lounging on the couch God came knocking.  He said “I am leaving … are you coming?”.  Anthony asked “What do you mean?”.  God said “I am leaving … are you coming or are you staying?”.  Then Anthony thought “This is crazy my whole life is in this?”. However Anthony finally decided to trust God and embarked into a new great adventure.  So he got up, and got going and said good bye to his band and the studio, and pulled the plug on everything including all products in the stores.
    In the midst of life twists and turns Anthony found himself in a series of crazy bad relationships that left him with almost nothing other than a warehouse with some dusty old gear and some boxes of memories.

    The good news is … God truly is a God of second chances and through it all Anthony had a beautiful child.

    Eventually he borrowed a little cash and bought an old trashed mobile home after much hard work and suffering from serious depression.  It left him to where he could not even move but only sleep.  He prayed and trusted God and God told him to move and get busy even if it was for 30 minutes at a time  so he did.  Then Anthony took on some cabinet jobs for some cash and rented a small shop.  Life was beginning to get better, then the economy collapsed in 2008, which eventually led to the close of the business leaving him again with almost nothing and close to loosing his little place of sanctuary.

    Once again he prayed to keep his little place and he did. Longing in his heart to find true love and music once again which was very much a huge part of his life.  Eventually, Anthony decided to surrender his life to GOD in the area of relationships and music.

    In 2011 Anthony met his current life companion and she encouraged him to retrieve and re master old songs from cassettes into the new CD called  “The Lost Years”.    Zeal was able to digitally re mixed and master them back into life with modern recording equipment.  Thus “Surrender” is resurrected in this album “The Lost Years” by Zealme Inc.  Now the studio has also expanded into films and videos as well and the beginning of a second chance, reclaiming "The Lost Years".

    He hopes you’ll find “Surrender” and these 8 songs full of Hope, Faith, Warmth and Love.  His “Surrender” to God’s vision.   And also that you will find courage and comfort in these songs of hope as this will also help fund the new and up coming projects.

    Please purchase this limited collectors edition.
    Many thanks. Wishing you all Gods best !
