Fold Zandura is a post-grunge alternative-rock CCM trio with experimental electroncia leanings. The band is comprised of Jyro (vocals, guitar), Jerome (bass) and Frank (drums). Jyro and Jerome formed Fold Zandura in 1995 after their previous group, Mortal, disbanded. The group is led by Jyro, who writes most of the songs. In the spring of 1996, Fold Zandura released their eponymous debut on K-Tel. The record and its accompanying tour received good word of mouth in the CCM and Christian rock community and led to a deal with the Chordant subsidiary, BEC Recordings. Their debut for the label, Ultra Forever, was released in the fall of 1997. Fold Zandura supported the record on an extensive tour opening for Plankeye and Seven Day Jesus.
