GLENDALE—The Armenian National Committee of America – Western Region announced this week that renowned Los Angeles based music producer Sebu Simonian will serve on the Film & the Arts Panel at the much anticipated ANCA Grassroots Conference slated for Thanksgiving weekend.

Simonian’s latest project Capital Cities released their debut album In A Tidal Wave of Mystery on Capitol Records / Lazy Hooks this year, with platinum selling lead single “Safe and Sound” climbing the charts worldwide and earning a Video Music Award. The band has toured North America, South America, Europe and Asia all the while hosting and participating in charity performances to promote awareness about the Armenian Genocide.
