LOS ANGELES - June 20, 2018 - PRLog -- SRI Records is happy to announce the signing of a multi-year contract with the hot new EDM artist Roger Hyde, p/k/a Barium Sunset. His debut release of "Here I Am" for the label. Is due before July 1st. "The opportunity arose to sign Roger and add to our roster of dance recording artists that include Disco-Tex & His Sex-O-Letts, Carol Douglas, etc. Roger's songs make people happy and make them move and get up and dance. I am really excited to have my talented friend Roger Hyde is on the cutting edge of EDM creativity and I am thrilled to have an artist with his talents joining the SRI Family", said Shelly Liebowitz. Roger Hyde is a complex thoughtful, creative and intelligent emerging talent. From his shy early musical moments, coming from a talented musical family he has become a terrific creator of electronic dance music. Roger Hyde prefers to be known as Barium Sunset as his professional nom de plume, keeping his shy side at home.

Hyde says his major influences are varied and hard to compile but acknowledges such artists as Nat King Cole, David, Bowie, Vangelis, The Thompson Twins and John Popper of Blues Traveller. Some of these influences led to Roger Hyde playing in a blues Band for a short period of time. "I listen to and play most genres, as they all have something to learn from, and I never stop learning. I also listen to a lot of dance, including my own so I can improve on what I have done before, hopefully. I like to think that I am original in my composing, because I approach the way I compose with not how many likes or sales I can achieve, but how my music makes people feel. Does it give them joy and make them want to dance and move with the groove, like there is not a care in your world?

"Here I Am" the debut SRI Records album by Barium Sunset will be distributed to Radio worldwide by June 25th and will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, iTunes, Google and all other digital outlets plus on the company website www.srirecords
