JOE’s Song Of The Day #699: ZASKA ‘Cannot Will Not’ (feat. Loah & Emma Garnett)
ZASKA brings the funk.
Max Zaska is a true Bohemian. More than just his style, it’s the region in Germany where his family originates. He grew up in Wicklow, and completed a B.A. in Jazz Performance at Newpark Music Centre, connecting his blues-rock roots with a love of improvisation.
He is the maestro guitarist-composer leading a supergroup of Ireland’s finest talent, whose revolving roster has included Hozier and members of Wyvern Lingo, Little Green Cars, and BARQ.
ZASKA is about to release his debut album in the new year and this is the first track from it. The debut album is called It Takes A Village and it was entirely crowd-funded. It features 14 renowned Dublin-based vocalists, including Wyvern Lingo, Loah, Emma Garnett and Carly Coonagh along with performances by members of Little Green Cars, BARQ, Super Silly, and more.

This is a bright and breezy track which will have you toe-tapping in no time and maybe, just maybe, crack a few shapes around the kitchen or whatever room you're in right now.
The forthcoming album features some great Irish talent and judging by the sound of this, the first release from it, we are in for a treat.
You can keep up to date with new releases and gig news via his Facebook page right here.
