Zamora Rose Project - Stand True

Stand True contains twelve original songs that range from straight up rock n’ roll, slow blues, acoustic spirituals, to instrumentals.

Zamora Rose Project originated with the idea that the world could use some good, new rock n' roll songs. Led by songwriter Ron Rose and singer Phil Zamora, the group came up with several original musical and lyrical ideas during Sunday songwriting sessions. They released their 2013 debut in March entitled, "Stand True." Heather Scarlett Rose, utilizing her Berklee based composition skills, was brought in as an arranger and producer to develop selected ideas into fully structured songs. Additional parts were done as needed on-the-fly by the Rose, Zamora, Rose songwriting team. Additional musician friends, including drummer Phil Sollar, guitarists Joe Colella and James Petrella, keyboard players Andy Hutnick and Steve Yelick, percussionist Willie Garza, horn player Maritza Spieler, and multi-instrumentalist Ed Goldfarb were brought in to the studio to make Stand True a reality.

Stand True contains twelve original songs that range from straight up rock n’ roll, slow blues, acoustic spirituals, to instrumentals. “Galileo’s Groove” is a tasteful acoustic-based composition with a funky groove, a strong lead vocal narrative with wonderful harmonies, reflecting on the fate of Galileo at the dawn of the Age of Enlightenment. “Painting It Blue,” a no holds blues rocker, is based on a story about the first encounter between Keith Richards and Muddy Waters at Chess Records in Chicago, as related in Richard's recent autobiography. “Psycho” is a take on a beach encounter with a beautiful but psychotic woman, featuring a driving guitar riff, a huge chorus, and a theremin solo.

The majority of the recording for Stand True was done in the coastal hamlet of Half Moon Bay, complemented by tracks done remotely by Yelick, Petrella and Goldfarb at studio locations along the California coast. Final arranging and editing was done by Heather Scarlett Rose. The album was mixed and mastered by Justin Weis and Ron Rose at Trakworx in San Francisco. Zamora Rose Project is now ramping up for a summer tour with many of the same musicians from the Stand True album project.
