Check out the latest video from Scott Zosel.  ‘Brewster’s Red Hotel’ has a fabulous groove, held together by Nick Salisbury’s throbbing, foot-tapping bass.  With jangling guitars, catchy melody and rhythmic sway, the single is reminiscent of The Jayhawks and is a confident blend of folk-rock and country with a touch of pop.  In the accompanying video, flickering retro images are interspersed with black and white footage of Zosel and the band performing, taking ‘Brewster’s Red Hotel’ back in time, while retaining the song’s freshness.

Zosel’s songs are carefully crafted and draw on a range on influences.  He says, “Writing songs is the last thing I think about before I drift off to sleep each night, and the first thing on my mind as I awaken each morning.  I am obsessed with lyrics and melody, and crazy, obtuse narratives.”  This song tells a tale of the town of Lanesboro, “…in the valley that time forgot to tell.”

The Minneapolis singer-songwriter has just released a brand new album, ‘Saturday’s Child’, celebrated by the release of the ‘Brewster’s Red Hotel’ video to capture your attention with it’s confident swagger and a tuneful groove.  Recorded ‘live’ at Boom Island with producer Greg Schutte, who also delivers drums, the album is enhanced by Kelly Jordahl’s  vocal harmonies and Dan Schwartz’s atmospheric guitar.  ‘Saturday’s Child’ is Zosel’s fourth full-length release and the follow-up to 2021’s ‘Tiny Yellow Room’, which received plenty of radio airplay across the USA.  Enjoy the single and then check out the album.
