Zen Ten is: Richard Cowdrey - guitars & keyboards Elliott Cowdrey - bass & guitars Brian Downes - lead vocals David Redding - lead guitars David LaTorre - drums & percussion Steve Thellen - keys & programming Unlike conventional Boston rock bands, Zen Ten takes the road less traveled. Exceptional and unique guitar styles blend hard edge rock with a hint of jazz, imaginative lyrics, haunting vocal melodies and a rock solid backbeat. Zen Ten's self-titled CD recorded at Zen Ten Studios & mixed at Blue Jay Recording Studio holds 14 tracks that deliver an impressive spectrum of sound and energy. The strength of the band lies in it's diversity. Richard Cowdrey, David Redding and Elliott Cowdrey have each mastered their varied guitar styles. The instantly recognizable guitar riffs of Dave Redding light up the perverbial sky while adding depth and texture to the recording on songs like 'Reason To Live' & 'Raising Cain'. Richard Cowdrey brings a smooth elegance and a liquid jazz flavor to 'Rain Revisited' and 'Drowning Man', while brother Elliott Cowdrey, who plays a strong and ominous bass throughout the recording, also contributes to the lead guitar power of the band in songs like 'No More'. Brian Downes delivers discerning and perceptive lyrics entwined in evocative melodies while strong backbeats create the foundation for the record's energy and enthusiasm.
