REVIEW: ZACH STONE – ASHES – BY RITCHIE RITCHISON
COUNTRY MUSIC NEWS INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE AND RADIO SHOW
Nothing’s Ever the Same
Haven’t Let Go Of Yet
the sophomore EP from Zach Stone. You would think a Texas native with a cowboy
hat on would give away what style of music Zach Stone makes. If you are
expecting me to talk about how Zach’s music is immersed in the west Texas soil
and fertilized with a healthy dose of steel guitar and hardcore country lyrics
you will be sadly disappointed. Zach
Stone is a traditionalist however….if you are carrying on the legacy of
Sister Hazel, Match Box 20 and the Stone Temple Pilots then Zach Stone is your
man. Everything about this EP is reflective of mid 90’s Pop Rock.
once in a while if you listen really hard you can hear a country phrase or two
and there are times when there is a flash of talent popping through that gives
one hope that Zach might become a pretty good songwriter one day. For now
though he is content to wear a cowboy hat and front a mid 90’s Rock band.
