Z-STAR Album Launch -16 Tons of Love
This is it! The hugely anticipated Australian launch of Z-STAR’S latest album “16 Tons of Love”
Award-winning British-Trinidadian artist Zee Gachette is the frontwoman of psyche soul blues rock band Z-STAR, whose high octane legendary live shows have lit up stages worldwide. Featuring infectious soul-soaked blues, garage funk and psyche rock, Z-STAR’s highlight performances have impressed many a music legend along the way including Jimmy Page, Roger Daltrey and Amy Winehouse.
Expect to rock the funk out with dirty basslines, phat blues beats, raucous riffy rock n roll guitars and delicious soul-soaked vocals.
“Within seconds, it was apparent comparisons between Zee Gachette and Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Nina Simone were no exaggeration. The sheer energy of her rock guitar, and the passion and power in her voice blew the audience away.” – Rhythms Magazine
White Lightning are a pair of raucous, whiskey drinking, happy-go-lucky scamps hailing from Melbourne. A 120 proof blend of hill-country, fingerpicking blues and slide guitar with some Chicago style crunch. With influences ranging from R.L Burnside, Son House and The White Stripes, White Lightning has been moving hips and wetting lips all around Victoria and is sure to get your bones rattlin'! Sexy, slightly narcotic blues grooves, straight from the Yarra Delta.
Z-Star Delta deliver a fascinating cinematic road trip of sound. From the acoustic sublime, to rambunctious rock, and beyond; Zee’s hypnotic presence, bewitching raspy blue tones, big acoustic guitars and swampy grooves laced with Seb’s dark desert slide, psyche blues guitars and synth make for a beautifully dangerous concoction.
“Nitrous-injected hyper-blues that spiritually hail from the Mississippi Delta….Z-Star Delta feature Zee Gachette’s driving drums, acoustic guitar and Earth mama vocals (often all at the same time), and Sebastien’s hypnotic psych and slide guitars. Charismatic, vibrant, original…sending a shock wave of sonic power throughout the venue.”
