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

2018 - The Halfway Point (Sort of)

We've played about 10 shows so far in 2018, after taking time off to regroup and for me to surround myself with people interested in original music who are willing to put in the time and effort to present a top-shelf product. 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 second half of 2018, with shows at an assortment of regular venues (The Social, Shiners, Bold Rock Hard Cider, Catawba Brewery) and new venues (The Troubadour, Sportsmans Marina, to name a few). I've returned to writing songs and my goal is to begin working on a new CD later in the summer. Brandon has a recording studio so we will utilize that in order to capture our music for this CD.  I anticipate Old Lady's Old Man, Gone Too Soon, Lay My Burden Down, and Four O'Clock Train to be on it, along with a few others still developing, and the potential to re-record Embrace Life and probably The Bottle Brought Me Down and re-mix Faultline for inclusion as well.
