Strong and refreshing, definitely not an "off the rack" bluegrass collection of ballads. Good insturmentals and a lead singer who sounds like a combination of Joan Baez and Dolly Parton. I understand the're local to my hometown Chicago and I can't wait to have a chance to see them perform live.. A very interesting sound of Americana folk and Blue Grass, but with a modern fresh face.
What a fun and fresh sound. I had a chance to see them live and can not think of the last time I saw a group look like they were having so much fun playing music together and it was really refreshing.
I love me some Zesty.
The energy of this band is just phenomenal. The album is great, but their sound is only part of the package. Seeing them perform is an entirely different experience. They're full of good times, great synergy, and just the right amount of sincerity. Two tracks in particular to try out are Zesty Blues and Travelin' Man. If you're interested in seeing them live, I would point you over to unclezesty[dot]com to see their schedule. I've seen them perform several times, and will continue to do so.
tl;dr Definitely worth a download.
