It’s rare that we are introduced to South-Western NJ based artists, but it’s always a pleasure to embrace, explore, and highlight all of the amazing artists working in the Garden State. Today I’m happy to introduce Delran’s own Zoo Keys, the project of multi-instrumentalist Joshua Holland. The artist comes well traveled in terms of band history having formerly served in Five Cents To Andy, Steadfast & Tenfold, The Fahrenheit Atlantic, and The First United Bank Of Skank while currently active in Knuckle Puck Time and Radagast.
Zoo Keys finds Holland blending and putting his own stamp on a variety of influences, the first product of which comes in the form of single “Trudgin’ On”. The track rides like a wistful, romanticized, NJ drive contemplating past loves. Jangly chords set up an ever present, winding, searing solo guitar as Holland’s wearied, distant croon serves as the intermediary between the two.
