Rose’s evocative lyrics paint vivid pictures and tell engaging stories, replete with humor, social consciousness and satire, while Speese’s impressive chops shine, notwithstanding his seasoned restraint, above all on the guitar. Among ZGP!’s major influences are Tom Waits, HUMANWINE and the Steampunk movement. Not afraid to mix things, up, ZGP! delights in changes of tempo, time signature and key, as well as a rotating cast of instruments, deftly keeping things lively and interesting.”
