Zebras In Public / Press

“The making of John Doe was probably the most intricate and time consuming project we've ever worked on”

“The band has Bob Marley sensibilities and the energy of over caffeinated toddlers. They would not have been out of place on stage at the Fillmore in the late 60’s, and have the stage presence to play big venues. Of course, at a big venue Zeb might not be able to jump on the bar to belt out a song, or rhythm guitarist Justin Smith might not be able to amble through the crowd the same way, or at least not as much of it”

“After a few lineup changes, juiced-up metallic Soul/Rock crew Zebras in Public gelled into a formidable live presence. That performing fury was brilliantly channeled into the 16 tracks that comprise Paradise Leg, the band’s impressive first full-length release. Their grueling work ethic paid off; the album is a throbbing Rock testament to the effort that ZIP has expended from its beginnings.”

“Cincinnati’s Zebras in Public recently unleashed a new music video for its hard-charging rocker “Blown Away,” a highlight of the band’s 2014 full-length release, Paradise Leg. Directed by the band’s drummer, Chris Himes, the rumbling music is matched up with footage of the band members zooming around Full Throttle Indoor Karting in Springdale. The fast-paced visuals are a great match for the high-octane nature of the song.”

“This awesome multi-racial Cincinatti band has become one of my favorite regional unsigned bands overnight. Their demo is really good, but it doesn't compare to seeing them live in action. It is here that these guys come to life and totally kick ass. I booked the band on my original rock showcase recently, and wow! The band's frontman, Zebediah Williams, is a vocal powerhouse who pretty much blew me away, and the band is no slouch, either. Zeb has an amazing singing voice and power, to boot. The show I saw was on July 4th, so Zeb started out their set with singing a killer rendition of "America The Beautiful" then it switched to a hard-rocking version of Team America's "America, f**k Yeah" song. It was cool. The band is super tight and sounds fantastic. The band has energy and stage presence out the wazoo. It's hard rock, soul, alternative, metal, a tad bit of Eighties, and anything else you can probably think of. It's diverse! Beautiful clean guitars with great tone! Creative riffing.”

“Zebras in Public (ZIP) is rightfully protective over their brand of juiced-up metallic Soul/Rock and the band-of-brothers attitude they’ve adopted to create it.”

“Cincinnati native band, Zebras In Public released their latest album “Paradise Leg.” A great deal of time has passed since their last release and their fans were waiting for an album with jam packed music. This latest album, gives just that and shows growth in the band as a whole. They have taken the time to let the music flow and it clearly shows with their diversity in tracks. They have proven themselves to not be limited to a specific genera. The band members themselves have many different influences and the way that it comes together on this album makes it a hot commodity to your music collection. They have perfect blended many aspects of rock which allows this album to rise to the top.”

“Joe Ryan from Guerilla Radio Cincinnati wrote an awesome review describing our show and what our music is all about.”

“Cincinnati fivesome Zebras in Public has released some propaganda to promote its new single and sophomore album. Actually, it’s a new single and accompanying music video for the group’s strong new song “Propaganda,” an ear-grabbing AltRock track that is slated for the new Zebras in Public full-length, Paradise Leg. The follow-up to the eclectic band’s 2010 debut album Scars & Stripes is due early next year.”

““Rock & Soul” quartet Zebras in Public celebrates its new six-song EP, Scars & Stripes, Saturday at downtown’s Mainstay Rock Bar. The Zebras’ sound is reminiscent of Fishbone’s Rock/Soul moments (right down to the chorus-effected guitars), shifting between soaring...”
