My old pal Zak Trojano reaveals himself a pensive soul indeed with YESTERDAY’S SUN. Lines like ‘...Life’s too short but it’s shorter than it seems’ light up the darkness and give it definition.
— Chris Smither

 

ZAK TROJANO is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, a finger-style guitar player, a fly-fisherman, and a beer drinker. Based in Greenfield, MA, he tours extensively singing "emotionally complex, classic feeling songs" with a strong baritone voice. www.zaktrojano.com 


It’s refreshing to hear a record [QUIET] devoted to her tranquil side - it only underscores the crazy range of one of Maine’s most versatile troubadours. And there’s nothing quiet about that.
