Hi, everyone, I hope you’ve had a great 2014 so far.  I’m happy to be closing it out with a reunion of Greg Ward’s Fitted Shards at the Made in Chicago Festival in Poznan, Poland later this month.  Looking forward to next year, LORIS should see the release of a live album we recorded during our Bar DeVille residency last April.  And I’ll be performing again at the International Society of Bassists convention in Ft. Collins, CO, in June 2015.  Finally, I’m proud to be on several tracks of Angela James’ first full-length album, just released.  She’s a fantastic singer and songwriter so check her out at www.angelajamesmusic.com.  See you soon!

When I first heard Zeshan’s music it was on a recording with his band, Zamin.  I was blown away be the power of his voice, but also the beauty of the melodies he creates.  When he joined us in the studio I couldn’t believe how he was able to deliver the same musical experience in person with just his voice and a harmonium.  It was a pleasure to talk with Zeshan about developing both is voice (training for years to perform opera) and his songwriting sensibilities (blending the classical Indian traditions with pop music elements). We also discuss his musical upbringing and the use of different languages in his music.  For this episode, Zeshan sings in English, Punjabi, and Urdu.  He performs “Day of Days,” “Ki Jaana Mein Kaun,” and “Step Aside.”
