Flint Zeigler Flint Zeigler's music career has been a steady, consistent progression, all of which point to growth and maturity of a seasoned, stellar songwriter. His years fronting roots-rock band Grantham Road around Pennsylvania and the surrounding states produced 3 albums, numerous radio singles that generated air-play across the country, sharing the stage with national bands like Hootie and the Blowfish, Saving Jane, and the Badlees, along with playing festivals with Jars of Clay, the Subdudes and others in the northeast. Flint has also built a fan base that has stuck by him over into his solo career. Grantham Road album "Parade" charted at #26 in the Roots Music chart and Flint?s verison of Neil Young's "Love is a Rose" has been a favorite since it's release in 2006. Flint's 2008 debut solo album, "New Harmony Sessions", showed a break from the clanging electric guitars and showcased the acoustic, intimate side of Flint's creative mind. Teaming up with Over The Rhine's live band, Mickey Grimm and Jake Bradley, and engineer, David Foreman, the result was a singer/songwriter's delight. The songs lyrics were showcased and the music was moody, dark and very live. Most of the basic tracks were recorded in an 1800's mansion in Indiana with all the players sitting together in the same room. Flint also used Pennsylvania musician Maurice Crane for the piano tracks which began the process for "Marks of Another Year". A move to Johnson City, TN put Zeigler in a position to be a part of not only the Tennessee music scene but also the Asheville, NC scene and formed a nice landscape to release a new project. Flint made trips to Pennsylvania to record with Maurice and his wife Wendy along with members of their band Creekside Soul. The setting was rural Pennsylvania, the rolling hills, family farms and Amish buggies. The sounds were old trucks and tractors, quiet, cool evenings and old friends sharing stories of life. The album is Flint's past, present and future all finding their niche and working together. Fender Telecasters through old tube amps, subtle piano lines, the crack of the snare drum and vocal harmonies that are sung from soul to soul. He recently finished recording in Asheville, NC with a close friend and together they explored the songs that Flint had been writing. Zeigler says he named the new project The Lumen Sessions because the name of the recording studio is Lumen Audio and because he felt it was like seeing old ideas in a new light. This current tour is in support of The Lumen Sessions release. http://www.flintzeigler.com/flint-zeigler 9PM $free, Please tip your bands and bartenders
Flint Zeigler @ Karen's Place with special guest Jeffrey Beauvais. Karen’s Place reopens on September 20 featuring singer songwriter Flint Zeigler. Flint was the former front man of a popular Pennsylvania roots-rock band and started his solo career in 2008. He has shared the stage with bands like Hootie and the Blowfish, Saving Jane and Jeffery Gaines. Zeigler says he is always trying to reinvent himself, always looking to grow as an artist. Flint’s latest project, The Lumen Sessions has a worn-in feel to it; like your favorite pair of blue jeans or that one tee shirt you can’t seem to throw away. There is a familiar, catchy quality to it that leaves the listener wanting to hear more. Each track is sparse, leaving room for all the unique sounds and Zeigler’s poetic lyrics. The Lumen Sessions is, in its basic form, deep poems on a bed of folk, blues and indie rock. Zeigler has a way with words; he writes as a seasoned wordsmith that is an experienced traveler and a lover of a good story. Inspired by God, this traveling troubadour is a “must see”. Don’t miss Flint’s return to Karen's Place on September 20. There is no admission charge.
