Zachary Cale "Blue Rider"

'Hold Fast' is taken from the album "BLUE RIDER" by Zachary Cale. Released Sept. 24th, 2013. Electric Ragtime / All Hands Electric. Pre-Order LP/CD, HERE.

Musically Cale incorporates a highly syncopated rhythm in his playing blending the melodic Piedmont picking technique of Pre-War country blues players like Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Willie McTell with the two-step rhythm of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. “Wayward Son” and “Hold Fast” are great examples of this complex style. The songs were recorded by Matt Boynton (Kurt Vile, MGMT, Bat for Lashes) and are fleshed out with electric textures and analog synthesizers which lend a cosmic effect to the performances. This forward thinking approach to roots music is what Cale has been driving at since he started.  -- All Hands Electric

Zachary Cale is a songwriter originally hailing from the small town of Enon, Louisiana.  His music ranges from lyrical folk balladry and American primitive inspired guitar instrumentals to experiments in popular song forms.  He is a co-founder of the record label All Hands Electric who has released records by an eclectic roster of bands such as Virginia Plain, Test House, The Gang Violets, Psychobuildings, Woodsy Pride, Plates of Cake, Peter’s House Music, Man Benu and Prudence Teacup.
