Zach sings, plays guitar and drums at the dining room table in his travel trailer.

First full band (guitar, drums, keyboard, and loop pedal) practice session in the new place was a success! Had to block the door for a little while, but I kept the volume down so I think Carrie and the dogs were okay with it. Preparing for my first Connecticut show at Molten Java in Bethel this Wednesday.

Zach Fountain performing on acoustic guitar at Iron Cactus Austin, 2015

After a relatively quiet 2015 (as far as music goes), I played my first songwriter showcase of 2016 at Iron Cactus North in Austin. Amy Zamarripa (awesome host and great songwriter who has put together open mics and shows at Whip In, Fair Bean Coffee, and other venues) hosted a songs-in-the-round showcase, where a few of us shared the stage and took turns playing songs. I shared a set with Amy Zamarripa and Amy Seguno (two very talented Amys) and took the opportunity to play a couple cold weather songs, “the time that passes” from like they do in movies and “your pretty black bow” from 52 of 28.

Zach Fountain (rushmore beekeepers) at Couch by Couchwest 2015

I know you’re thinking, what did he mean by “Couch By Couchwest 2015 (indoors)”? Did he mean there was an “outdoors” session? Well, if that’s what you thought, you thought right.

Watch rushmore beekeepers play “breathe easy,” “just passing by,” and “what it’s like to be sad” at CXCW 2015 and keep a lookout for several guest appearances (and some backing vocals) from Kyla the dog.
