REVEREND ZEN Katonah NY Rock Pop Blues Cool Jazz
Multi-Award Winning lyricist, vocalist, and drummer, Jack Evans, the leader of the band known as Reverend Zen, is making waves around the world. Ten years in the making and release of their debut album Angels, Blues and the Crying Moon might seem like an eternity, but some things are worth the wait. It’s music for the thinking man’s head. Critics around the globe agree. To date the genre-stretching band has won over 50 lyrical and category awards, which reads like a Who’s Who in the underground music scene.
Reverend Zen’s musical credentials are beyond question. The group’s musicians have a history of playing with the music greats, ranging from Eric Clapton and Bruce Springsteen to Sheryl Crow, Donald Fagen, John Scofield, Annie Lennox, Elvis Costello, Sting, Shawn Colvin, B.B. King and Stevie Wonder. The band’s sound pays tribute to these influences, but also pushes musical boundaries mixing the funk laden wit of Bad Attitude and the incredulous tales of a prodigy on the burning Boy Genius with the classic rock sound of Magdalena and its folk tale of love found. Sample the disc and you’ll understand why people are in love with RZ.
