Amos Zimmerman & the Riverband
Deep inside the musical chaos that reigns the world, somewhere in the heart of the wide fields of audio, Amos Zimmerman & the Riverband are a rare example for a high-quality, honest group of musicians -- one that sounds as if it had been playing together for many long years. Amos Zimmerman (guitar, harmonica, vocals) writes the songs, influenced by American Folk, Country, Blues and Rock'n'Roll. Beside him, an energetic stream of living sound -- a sweeping, fire-breathing, boundary-streching organism -- the Riverband: Gon Amir (drums), Amitai Vilk (bass) and Tom Harnoy (guitars). Playing together, life is brought to the folky ballads, creating a unique sound you've never heard anywhere before. The self-titled debut album, independantly released June 2010 in Israel, is now available here for purchase. All songs written by Amos Zimmerman Produced by Amos Zimmerman & the Riverband Recorded by Matan Ashkenazi at Ozen Musicalit Studios, Kibbutz Ma'abarot, Israel, 2009 Mixed by Ofer Eshed Mastered by Doug Van Sloun at Focus Mastering Studios, Omaha, Nebraska, USA Front cover art by Jonathan David.
