The next show on June 13, 2018 will feature Zion Rodman. The theme will be “Wake Me Up When the World’s Worth Waking Up for .”
Zion Rodman is a multi-instrumental singer-songwriter. He grew up in Falmouth, MA, where he played around Cape Cod since the age of 15 and eventually received a BA in music from the University of Massachusetts in Boston. He grew a fan base in New England and by 2017, Zion was performing at historic venues like Club Passim, Caffe Lena, and the House of Blues. He opened for national acts that include Ellis Paul and Jeffrey Gaines.
In the summer of 2017, Zion teamed up with producer Alex Katz and released his debut full-length record You're Invited. The folk-rock album received praise and local media attention following its anticipated release.
Less than a year later, Zion released an EP titled “Did Not Wake up Today” on January 20th, 2018. This project features heavier topics and harder rock than his debut album. Even before its release, the title track was recognized by AFROPUNK: “Rodman turns up the volume of his melodic indie pop, with his stunning voice just barely masking his anger beneath the hook.” http://zionrodmanmusic.com/
