I am a writer and musician living north of Boston. It's more exciting than this makes it sound (sometimes).

I originally recorded a stripped-down version of "Bruises" for my EP Here's A Moon in 2000. It's the only holdover on the new album, Blue Skies and Broken Arrows, here played with a full band.  https://nickzaino.bandcamp.com/track/bruises-2

Here's another one from the full-band CD release show at the Midway Cafe​ earlier this month. This is "One True Friend," and I was lucky enough to have Paul Hansen​ come up and sing it with me. It was good to play with him again (Jarvis fans, anyone -- Michael Burrows​). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJqV4q2T1eA

My first full-length album, Blue Skies and Broken Arrows is out! It's an American/Rock and roll/folk kind of thing, and a lot of very talented friends lent me their time to make it. Please check it out, and spread the word. I'll post links to other places to pick it up in the comments. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/nickzaino

Hoping to rally a crowd out to TT the Bear's on Monday, September 22. I'll be opening a show for Cary Brown and Aurélien Boilleau, who are coming from France to headline the show. Also on the bill are North-Going Zax and Maria Earabino. Please share with your friends who like Americana/Rock music. And come hear me play music from my forthcoming album, Blue Skies and Broken Arrows. Recording is done, working on mixing and mastering now.

Always a joy to speak with Jonathan Katz, a fascinating and funny guy. This is my piece from today's Boston Globe about his new show, which plays ImprovBoston tomorrow, and the mechanics of finding what's funny. http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/theater-art/2014/09/12/katz-back-with-stage-show-that-stretches-beyond-stand/IOn1NI4Eb6T9evneHDzWaJ/story.html

A while back, I took Kevin G Moore's Songwriters Challenge, and wrote a song with the theme Gods and Goddesses. This is the result, taped live in Kevin's kitchen. He and Molly Pinto Madigan added background vocals after the video was taped (I am not haunted by the Pips).
