Leaves You with a Good Feeling
Zamora Rose Project's "Stand True" is a significant effort, especially for a first album. Mostly soft-rock, interspersed with variations reminiscent of late 1960s-early 70s vintage hits. Since that was the era of my youth, it is simultaneously nostalgic, yet new.

Most of the songs feature flowing guitar riffs and sweet vocals. “Stand True” “Gallileo’s Groove”, Transparent Leaves" and “Falling Down” are a mellow tunes, with stronger vocalizations in the more rocking, storytelling "Time to Kill" and "Tremblin'(the vocals in "Tremblin'" reminded me of a few Kenny Rogers tunes). I really liked the bluesy “Love Lets Us Know”- I played that several times - while “Mexican Maid” is more 1970s-style rock. “Psycho” is well-named, with a similar style to the old 60’s song “Monster Mash”, complete with with Boris Karloff–style vocalization and Electro-Theremin sound effects. The harmonies by Heather Scarlett Rose are an often subtle, compatible undercurrent to Phil Zamora’s vocals. The overall effect is one that leaves a good feeling with the listener.

Stand True - Zamora Rose Project

Bringing the Sounds of the Sixties but with a contemporary feel
This is an exceptional record that works well on many different levels. This would be an excellent gift for someone who enjoys the classic music of groups like the Doors, Cream and Jefferson Airplane but who also enjoys listening to something new from time to time.
Fans of 60s and 70s rock will definitely appreciate the classic rock stylings presented on hard rocking songs such as Painting it Blue, Mexican Maid, and Psycho. However, the band also slips into a very contemporary, softer contemplative side on cuts like Falling Down. Feel like slow dancing? Check out the soulful Love Let’s Us Know.
The lead singer, Phil Zamora, is described in the liner notes as a chameleon and that aptly describes his ability to channel different singing styles. On songs such as Time to Kill he channels Jim Morrison, while on mellower tunes he can sound like a mellifluous 60’s era folksinger. Zamora is a veteran rocker who has played with a number of different bands over a varied and storied career. Also according to the liner notes, the Producer and Arranger, Heather Scarlett Rose, is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Heather also played several instruments on the record - including bass, guitar and keyboards. This musical collaboration between an experienced rocker, who has honed his sound on the stage over the years and a versatile music school graduate may seem like an unlikely pairing, but it works here brilliantly.
The musicianship is at an uniformly high level throughout the record. All of the cuts feature a very tight rhythm section and the keyboards especially stand out on several of the tracks.
The album ends with one of the best tracks, Times Change, an up-tempo instrumental number which projects an optimistic feel. This is an appropriate note on which to end the debut album of an extremely promising band. Here’s hoping we get to hear much, much more of them.
