ZEB HEINTZ
"Straight From The Heart"
New album "Straight From The Heart" is Zeb Heintz's fourth CD album (available in stores in France from January 30,2009 , distributed by Anticraft). In this solo album Zeb's original compositions reveal a style both energetic and intimist, mixing Blues/Jazz and Roots. From a recording point of view the audio is also remarkably creative.

Zeb is now going solo with a project which he has been working on for a year but has been close to his heart for much longer. The idea of a solo performance came to him early on when working closely with his teacher, a finger-picking specialist, and attending concerts at the ADGPA , which featured artists such as Alain Giroux and Marcel Dadi.

Passionate about Blues and Jazz Zeb particularly admires the work of Lonnie Johnson, B.B. King, Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, and T. Bone Walker, and claims no exclusive influence. Closely listening to and absorbing the influence of all these musicians allow him to pay homage to the masters while shaping his own style.

He mixes solo phrases with chords and walking-bass, always mindful to let his listeners follow and " read " his music. Guitar-maker Christophe Grellier built Zeb's arch-top specifically for this project, with a view to producing a warm and powerful acoustic sound. Zeb's repertoire includes mostly personal compositions as well as a few standards.
