Brock Zeman – Americana – Roots
Songwriter Performer Producer Voice Actor
Brock Zeman is a driven, charismatic and passionate singer-songwriter from Lanark, Canada. His music is all about connecting with listeners through uplifting melodies, organic soundscapes and earnest lyricism , not unlike artists the likes of Wilco, Ryan Adams or Damien Rice.His blend of Americana relies on the insightful depth of his song writing as well as on the bare and elegant instrumentation. Brock’s direct approach is all about turning simplicity and seamlessness into the strength and core of his songs.Over the course of 11 albums, Ottawa area singer songwriter Brock Zeman has built a reputation as a writer of great depth and passion, through his thoughtful, often personal songs. But he’s got a rough, rockin’ side as well. Joined on relentless tours across Western Canada and down to Texas and back by his ever present collaborator, Blair Hogan, and often drummer Dylan Roberts, Zeman and crew can put on a powerful show that has attendees rocking as much as feeling the stories that he tells in song. He could easily be the bastard son of Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle, with a gravelly Tom Waits voice.On his last couple of albums, Zeman had been experimenting with dense sound scapes that told as much of the story as his words. On the newest, “Pulling Your Sword out of the Devil’s Back,” the words and melody are at the forefront, and with a batch of songs as strong as these, they certainly should be. The melodies on the record are his strongest yet. Many are instantly memorable, and could find a home on commercial country or rock radio. If those tired formats played powerful songs like these, “Dead Man’s Shoes” could be a strong country hit, and “Little Details” or “Some Things Always Stay” would be blaring out of car windows all summer long.
