Nox Boys Frontman “Steps” Out on His Own
We here at Get Hip are thrilled to present the second entry in our new Folk Series sublabel!
First Step is the debut solo album by Zack Keim, guitarist and lead singer of Pittsburgh garage rock powerhouse Nox Boys. It’s ten tracks of bare-bones acoustic folk rock; a collection of melancholy ballads and serene love songs steeped in Dylan-esque affectation. Featuring production by Blue Ash’s Pete Drivere and guest appearances by Demos Papadimas and The Cynics’ Gregg Kostelich, this ’60s-flavored folk artifact is not to be missed!
First Step is set for release this Friday, May 5. It will be available as a 12″ LP pressed on special edition clear vinyl (limited to 300 copies) and classic black wax, as well as CD, and digital. All vinyl copies include a download coupon.
Listen to two debut tracks on Bandcamp below, and be sure to check out the album trailer featuring a special live rendition of “On The Run Blues.”
