Published today, June 13th:
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

Late Night Lonesome Prisoner Blues
A song that sprung from a random conversation.
After getting snowed out at Black Mountain's White Horse (return date - May 19th), we debuted Mark Kadowaki on guitar and keyboards on January 20th at The Social. Huge throng of fans, Abbot Grivich joined us on stage for a couple tunes, The Blueshound came up and blew harp on a tune, and Asheville's own Jack Mascari blessed us with his presence on a song. The band sounds tighter, more solid than ever. We've booked several 2017 festivals already including the 2017 River Valley Blues Festival, Dumplin Valley Concert Series, Asheville Foodtruck Festival, Biltmore Lake's 4th of July event, Black Mountain's Park Rhythms series, and are in conversation with the Beer City Festival, Brevard Blues Festival, The White Squirrel Festival and others. We already have more dollars worth of shows booked in 2017 than we made in 2016. Things are definitely looking up.
We also will be bringing in some new originals - Gone Too Soon and Burden are ready to start working on and Mark has four or five original songs that I think will fit in well also.

For all my life, it seems, music as been central. As a child, I remember music - the classic rock of the 1960s as my mother worked around the house. Influences like CCR, The Beatles, Cream, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elvis Presley, all in my ears. As I grew older, I realized I wanted to play, and I took up the guitar. And here I am, more than 30 years down the road, still playing my way down the road less traveled.
