Double vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release from Zach Gill, the multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter/member of the rock band ALO and a member of Jack Johnson's band. Zach Gill is notable for the fluid motion he exhibits while playing. An animated pianist, he rarely stops moving in his trademark jellylike, swaying way. His piano stylings range from haunting to upbeat and controlled-substance induced to mythic sounding. His music is full of heart, humor, personality and top-notch musicianship. His solo performances feel more like performance art rather than a traditional rock show. He employs traditional instruments like banjos, ukuleles and accordions in non-traditional ways and uses story-telling, audience participation and even hand puppets and hand-made masks to enhance his compositions and performances.
