Here, there and Ottawa

If you turned your Sirius radio dial to the Catholic Channel a week ago Saturday, you were privy to an exclusive preview of Joe Zambon’s new album “There and Here”. As S+L Radio's featured artist, the Ottawa-based singer-songwriter shared three tracks from his third release, which officially dropped the following day. Host Pedro Guevara-Mann accurately described him one of the “newest, freshest sounds on the Catholic music scene”.
Left to right: Trish, Angela, Jason, Joe, Laura and KrisHaving gotten to know Joe and his music this past year, I joined four enthusiastic friends for a road trip to Ottawa for the CD release. A near-capacity crowd at the Bronson Centre delighted in Zambon’s performance, shared with his characteristic warmth, sincerity and humility. Highlights included the poignant opener "On the table" about a breakdown caused by living apart from God and the meditative track "God is love".
If you missed the October 3rd S+L Radio program, you can download the podcast for free on iTunes. (Pedro’s telephone interview with Zambon occurs at the 32:00 mark.) “There and Here” is selling now at Salem Storehouse in Ottawa and will be available for purchase on iTunes and CD Baby by Thanksgiving.
