Zack Roach: Heavy Imagination

Although he showed an early interest in the acoustic guitar and is influenced by a wide range of acoustic players, Zack Roach has built his reputation on playing loud, aggressive electric guitar. Whether in bands such as The Empress or Spirit of the Stairs, Roach always tempers heaviness with feel, taste and imagination.

Here he is with Senses Fail playing on “The Courage of an Open Heart” from the upcoming album Pull The Thorns From Your Heart.

The guitar in its many forms and styles is featured throughout June across our music programs. For more information about the shows and their features and to listen to KMUW music shows anytime online, visit our website at kmuw.org.
