You just believe Brock Zeman – really, that’s the thing. Storytellers and songwriters, playwrights and actors all bet their supper on being able to deliver you to where they want to take you – you dig? Ok, let me put it this way – when you have over a dozen acclaimed records and an international resume at the age of 35, it behooves us to pay some genuine heed, for the songs he writes are testament to the world around him that also encompasses us somehow in our own spaces. Hailing from the ruff n’ steady Ottawa Valley enclave of Carlton Place, a starting point for some deeply touching and highly raucous music from Brock Zeman’s mind, the everyday turned pivotal, the long fights frozen in an image. For the past nine years, Blair Hogan has been the friend and sideman to Zeman’s songs, thankful for the canvass afforded a great sideman. Trust and execution seems to be the order of the day as the pair came to Hamilton in early December to play a great show with local legends Dave Pomfret and Scotty Bakalar at This Ain’t Hollywood, a club we all love so much. Every time they pass through on their relentless schedule, they attract a few more fans with great songs and great attitudes – nicer guys you’ll never meet.
They get the BSP stamp of approval and if perchance you see a Brock Zeman show advertised in your area, you just might want to check out this podcast to see why it will be worth it for sure.
