Created with the instrumentation of The Meters, Zony Mash starts where they left off, with Wayne Horvitz' spectral compositions and Tim Young's remarkable guitar playing. With Keith Lowe on bass and Andy Roth on drums.
Zony Mash will be recording live for a new holiday EP featuring original compositions, holiday classics, and music by Charles Ives, ZZ Top and more.
Zony Mash are the Booker T and the MGs for the fin de siècle.

Many artists have mined the vast repertoire of early American music, but few with such originality, poetic vision, and utterly unique harmonic language. Composer, pianist and vocalists Robin Holcomb’s music has been called “staggeringly beautiful.” by the New York Times. Through her times sharecropping tobacco as a young woman, as an improvising pianist on New Yorks’ downtown scene in the 80s, and three decades of creating an utterly idiosycratic catalog of songs, Ms. Holcomb has created a singular canon as a composer. Here most recent composition, “Paradise”, was commissioned and performed by The Philadelphia Orchestra in October 2021.
Robin Holcomb performs from her new solo CD, One Way or Another Vol 1., in addition to songs from her 3 Nonesuch CDS, Robin Holcomb, Rockabye and The Big Time.
Achingly painful and suddenly tender, Robin Holcomb’s songs mirror a beguiling, bewildering world. Rolling Stone
This beautiful music Robin Holcomb has made. Intimate. Sacred. Scared. Brave. Naked. Magic. Hope. Music….Everyone. Please LISTEN. Listen closely. We need this.
