The Zach Longoria Project (ZLP) is an diversely made up band from Louisville, KY with an incredibly soulful vein. With R&B seated at the core of their music, ZLP weaves elements of jazz and a touch of old-school this & that to create what they like to call “Kentucky Fried Soul”. Their music has just the right amount of the south mingled in.

ZLP is a collaboration of musicians who are all in it for the love of music, and are driven by the passion of creating it. They came together in 2013 in a town that is much smaller than it seems. Zach had a vision early- to have a band that was made up of people who are good to each other and share the same set of values, musically and by virtue. This group is a close-knit partnership of kindred spirits, and it shines through in the music they put forth.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Long before the first volume of his recent 2×4 EP series, everything about Chicago based soul/pop sensation Aryk Crowder has been about building a sturdy, tangible structure on which his unique vision can thrive. From his early four-track recordings in a studio apartment to recent grass-roots efforts in crowd-sourcing and charity work to the hand-stamped artwork and distribution of 2×4 it’s all innovative, creative and certainly DIY, but Crowder’s ethic also hearkens back to a time before DIY was hip or underground. With his own two hands, Crowder isn’t building walls in order to stand-out, so much as bridges.

Though comparisons to Jeff Buckley, John Mayer or Ben Harper aren’t unwarranted, Crowder sports more love for true soul music than any of the above, as evidenced through the rustic tones of acoustic plucks. Whether solo or joined by his infections live band, Crowder has wow’d audiences as an opener for national touring artists (Yuna, Jordan Knight,Mat Kearney,and more) as well as at a sold-out, debut appearance at Angels & Kings (owned by Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz). Crowder has also racked up several stunning live on-air performances on WGN 720AM, WBEZ 91.5FM, Vocalo 90.7FM and Fearless Radio, reaching worldwide audiences listening over the internet.

Crowder’s connections to his fans and his city are far from done when the final note is sung or the last instrument cable is wrapped up for the night. He’s bringing human emotion (and handmade keepsakes in which to collect them) back in an age of a point-and-click music industry.
