“SZ: Your music spans across several genres, Blues, rock, funk, when people who haven’t heard your music ask you to describe it to them or ask you what genre it’s in, what do you tell them (beside just listen to it)? ZP: That problem has actually gotten worse over time (the problem of assigning a label). I used to play acoustic guitar exclusively, so I could easy reference another acoustic guitar performer like Jack Johnson or Dave Matthews or early John Mayer, but now that my repertoire has grown to include so much more it has become more and more difficult to describe. My first musical love is and always will be the blues, but I also love classic southern soul and western swing and early R & B and country. I have started just referring to it as “roots music”. All of those genres and styles found their way into modern popular music from Rock to Rap.”
