Put It In Your Ear - Zane Williams
January 19, 2016No Comments
The Texas Country Music scene has so many amazing artists that have YET to gain national radio play. When ever I stumble across some of these great artists and song writers I am blown away. I’m not going to get into the politics of country radio here, just know that there are some pretty amazing artists out there if you keep your ears open.
A few months back I got to interview Aaron Watson and asked him what artists we should check out that we don’t hear on the West Coast. The name he brought up was Zane Williams. After a few more interviews with Texas artists, Zane’s name kept coming up. Everyone kept telling me about how great a song writer he was. I finally had a chance to sit down and pop in some of Zane’s tracks to hear for myself.
The sounds that came through my speakers were true, real life, hardworking lyrics. Zane’s music comes across as honest blue collar songs. Song’s like his current single, She Is show his gentlemen side while Jayton and Jill tells the gritty tale of two young folks falling in love.
This Friday Zane releases an album of his favorite song over the course of his career called Snapsots. If your looking for an alternative to the more mainstream pop / hip-hop influenced sound that is all the rage in country music these days, this album should scratch that itch for you!
Be sure to give a listen to a few of his songs here and then check him out on his social media!
