The Bottle Brought Me Down
Take the cap off and you'll drown

If you need to hone your air guitar skills, THIS is the album. I don't play air guitar a lot when listening to music (okay, more than I'd like to admit), but found myself doing it to every song on this album. Yes, the lyrics are good, and the vocals fit them, but it's the guitar that really stands out. "Yeah, those other instruments are okay, but check ME out!" I challenge you to listen to this album and not find yourself in air guitar mode. You just can't do it.

"There's a fault line running through me,
It's like I'm trapped inside of a dream..."

Fault Line Reviews




Fault Line is the debut release from Asheville's own Zuzu Welsh Band.  This band can rock it out, folks!  Zuzu Welsh does the writing, but the real star here is the musical collective of these fine musicians.  They have two of the most gifted lead guitarists in western North Carolina.  Zuzu's playing is rooted in the blues and plays with a passion much like Eric Clapton.  Abbot Grivich compliments Zuzu perfectly with workman like precision and a southern rock feel.  Vocalist Bobby Hicks brings energy and grit to the sound.  The rhythm section of Dana Koone on percussion and Johnny Haisman on bass fill out and drive the rocking beat of the band.  If you like your rock served with Carolina cooking and a dash of blues , then you need to give this cd a listen.  The Zuzu Welsh Band deserves to be heard! - Ray Brown

Latest Songs

2018 - So Far

So far, 2018 has been the year of the drummer. We ended 2017 with Dana Koone as our drummer. Since then, we have had behind the kit Jeremy King, Nathan Bladen and now Lea Anna Bright.  Lea Anna is a solid pocket/groove-oriented drummer with just enough flair to spice up the songs without losing track of the tempo and pocket. She also drums with Hierlum, and so we share a drummer. Jeremy fills in when needed, so things are rolling along smoothly. We have played about 25 shows so far this year, and we've brought in a number of new songs - both cover and original material. The band is, from all feedback from long-time followers, better than ever, the best line-up we've had overall. The many hours of practice outside rehearsals shows in our performance. So now we take aim on the end of 2018, and 2019. 

The Tavern has been a long-running favorite on the independent music charts, hanging in the top ten at MusicMafia Radio's top 30 for 13 straight weeks now, the last half dozen in the top five. This week we reached #2, and have our sights set on #1.

We have shows lined up from now until year-end at The Social, Catawba Brewery, Shiner's, and are waiting to hear about our participation in the Smoky Mountain Blues Society's event affiliated with the International Blues Challenge. A lot of exciting things going on.
