Today, Zephaniah OHora releases "We Planned To Have It All" (listen/share), the third and final single to be shared in advance of his forthcoming studio album, 'Listening To The Music,' out August 28 on Last Roundup Records. The song is a classic honky-tonk country ballad that makes peace with loss and change.
It’s a dark little bar, named after Guy Clark’s bass player, that’s tucked into a lost corner of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. The band’s crammed up on the stage, nearly spilling into the audience, and young couples are two-stepping around the edges. With a nightly lineup of the best young honky-tonk bands in the US coming through, Skinny Dennis has become the center of New York’s burgeoning roots country scene, and Zephaniah OHora–his hair slicked back, all decked out in black–is leading this new community.
