Mazloom Empire is a pop-rock outfit from Columbia, SC featuring the songwriting of Lawdan Mazloom. A young and gifted songwriter, Mazloom has taken her acoustic catalog and crafted full-band instrumentations with the help of her band Mazloom Empire.
Their self-titled EP release features songs that gives you a good look into the catchiness of Mazloom Empire.
A full-length debut will be released at the end of 2012.
"Although fronted by 21-year-old Lawdan Mazloom, The Mazloom Empire features a venerable collection of local musicians who know exactly how to provide an edgy, alternative undercurrent to the singer’s punchy pop-rock tunes. Already boasting two Jam Room engineers in guitarist Zac Thomas and bassist Brett Kent (also of Shallow Palace) as well as the affable Steve Sancho on the skins (Whiskey Tango Revue, Say Brother), the group recently added psychedelic pop powerhouse Marshall Brown on piano and back-up vocals, and in the process officially declared itself one of the most talent-heavy lineups in the city."
