Zac Brown Band

Though the Zac Brown Band is classified as a country music act their latest release features music from many different genres. The band is very comfortable mixing alt-country with reggae, rock and bluegrass to make a sound that is uniquely their own. The diversity on the album is impressive. Much of the album has that "live" feel to it as many songs are just like recordings of the band jamming. Fairly stripped down and boasting very little in the way of production, this is a band that will still impress you with their high calibre of musicianship. What really stood out for me on the album are the harmonies. Smooth, polished and fresh are the best ways to describe them. Check out the sparse piano driving ballad "Colder Weather" as it is the strongest track on the album.
