Description

Zephaniah OHora's encyclopedic knowledge and burning love for old country music glows triumphantly throughout his new album This Highway, which frames his original songs right in the crossroads of a golden era in the music: the meeting of the Bakersfield and Nashville Sounds of the 1960s. This blend of New-York-City-meets-Merle-Haggard songwriting means that OHora's songs feel deeply personal even while presented through the smooth sound of a bygone era. Wanting to create new music that drew from the classic eras of country and touched on the gritty love of the road that country truckers sang to, OHora formed up The 18 Wheelers to accompany him on the new album. At a time when "throwback" artists are a dime a dozen, he has captured a beautiful, specific, and lesser known moment in the history of country music, and brought it to life through his own voice. Back in the late 60s and early 70s, country music decided it needed to try appealing to an urban demographic, and maybe it's some kind of beautiful irony that New York's Zephaniah OHora is now creating some of the best country music today.
