SUTTER ZACHMAN releases his new EP in Ireland this January
SUTTER ZACHMAN’S REPEAT OFFENDER EP OUT this week 9.1.15 FROM MODERN ROOTS
‘Repeat Offender’ is Sutter Zachman’s 4-track EP that Modern Roots Music Co. has proudly released. The EP includes “Back To Sleep,” a song that has enjoyed airtime across Ireland from Rte to BBC and Regional Radio along with parts of the UK over the summer of 2014. Repeat Offender was produced by Modern Roots’ founder Jimmy Sloan who has worked with a broad range of artists including The Blind Boys Of Alabama, Fishbone, Weezer and Dave Alvin as producer and/or recording engineer. Dave Jerden (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Talking Heads) mixed three of the EPs four songs, all of which were recorded last year at Seahorse Sound in downtown LA.
Zachman, 26, a Southern California native, wrote all of the Repeat Offender material. A student of the songwriting of Nick Lowe, Van Morrison, Robbie Robertson and Ron Sexsmith, he signed his first major music publishing deal when he was barely out of his ’teens. One UK pundit said of Zachman that he is “blessed with a warm and woodsy voice that would have been right at home in 1970s Laurel Canyon…”
Sutter Zachman has developed his own sound while working at odd jobs in small towns across the country from Lawrence, KS to California’s Coachella Valley. Now that he’s based back in Los Angeles, he has reconnected with his roots and has been working with a group of top players who collaborated on the recordings including these Repeat Offender “co-conspirators”: Janson Mandell (bass, vocals), Cameron Meshell (drums, vocals, bass), Angela Russell (violin/vocals), Wallflowers/Foo Fighters’ Rami Jaffe (keyboards) Fishbone’s John Norwood Fisher (bass) and Gap Band veteran Victor Orlando (percussion).
