Lisa Bastoni and Zak Trojano were my guests on Nine Volt Heart in advance of their Parlor room show on 12/14. They will share the bill on that Saturday night assuring those in attendance of a fabulous singer-songwriter evening. Lisa is debuting her “How We Want To Live” CD on this tour. It is very personal set of songs which is guaranteed to engage both the heart and the mind. Zak uses his incredible finger-picking style along with an amazingly expressive voice.
Both musicians shared a handful of new songs in our segment. Their shared appreciation is evident while each artist sang in the studio. Smiles and nods of mutual understanding abound. Lisa sang three songs from her gorgeous new release including “Nearby”, “Pocketful of Sighs’ and “Beautiful Girl” while Zak sang “Gorham”and”Poor Boys Long Away from Home”. Our segment includes a number of songs from their catalog including Zak’s latest disk “Wolf Trees” and an instrumental disc called “I Took Molly to see the Butterflies”.
Catch this talented pair when they each showcase their latest work on December 14 in Northampton’s Parlor Room.
