In the next month we are going to be recording our debut Z+B album and this new collection of songs will only be released at our live performances. "Why?" you ask. Well... we're now old enough to be nostalgic for a time when you went to a concert and if you liked the band, the only way to get the music was from the artist right then and there. There are so many places to stream your music online as an independent artist. It feels like you labor for months or years on recording and the second you upload it to "said site" it slips into entropy and dissolves into the gigabytes of noise on the internet. So, with this next album we want to "marry" our music with the live performance. As an artistic experiment, we want to throwback to the "indie band days of old" and only have this "album" (CD and MP3) available for sale at our show. I.E. You have to come buy it out of our thrift store suitcase cause its not on itunes or spotify.
Help us release this album
Along with releasing our debut album, we are embarking on a nationwide house concert tour. As we record this album we are looking for folks who want to host a home concert. We are set to begin at the end of March in Los Angeles and the route will be determined by those of you who request to host us. Please help us by: »REGISTERING TO BE A HOST HERE«
"What is a home concert?"
It is simply a performance of our music in a host's home (or unique space). We have performed home concerts for the last 4 years in tiny spaces, large spaces, next to the ocean and in the mountains - the mark of a good home concert is solely based on the people involved.
To date, these types of shows have been the most fulfilling performances for us and a beautiful space to honestly share our work. We are very excited about the home concert movement. More and more musicians are doing these sorts of shows to skirt the politics of venues. We are passionate about the home concert and we feel these sorts of shows are the future of folk music - or return to the past; however you see it.
