ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Zaba Grace is unafraid to take risks. Her first step towards making her debut record “My Own Skin” was nothing less than uprooting her entire life in Ohio to move to Virginia. Seizing upon an opportunity to record with producer Chris Kress (Dave Matthews Band, Ben Kweller,
My Morning Jacket, Naked Puritans) Zaba started her entire life over, finding a new house, a new job, and making new friends. Her second step was to open her very personal and sometimes painfully revealing journals to select group of co-writers: Shannon Mier, Lance Brenner (Naked Puritans), Will Hummel, and Andy Waldeck (Earth to Andy). As
co-writing sessions took place and songs began to take shape Zaba increased her work-load and began intensive voice lessons maturing slowly but surely from a total neophyte to a confident vocalist. As poise and assurance grew in her delivery, recording in Nashville, TN and Charlottesville revealed bravely intimate remembrances wrapped in a sophisticated power-pop sheen. In her now fully realized songs, Zaba pulls no punches with her past to bring you completely into the experiences of her old life. The problem of evil (God), purging of pain (Sorry Charlie), the surprise of human grace (Angel and Free) and the beginning of healing (Broken Heart) are the dominant themes of this first batch of songs. Take a listen to “My Own Skin” and what you’ll find is a direct, personal, confessional pop record, the first result of Zaba Grace’s remarkable personal daring.

CD Baby


With crunchy elements similar to Alanis Morrissette, bad-girl, rebellious genius like Ani Difranco and "deal with this" attitude often associated with Avril Lavigne, Zaba Grace wraps up a chunky, bristling mix of pop, rock and unapologetic, in-your-face pleasure. Sonic, soaring, loud and bold, her music draws from various time-lines in pop and rock and encompasses whatever seems to make a song fly, with no reservations or inhibitions. Those looking for gutsy chick rock will find plenty to appreciate in, "My Own Skin."

Bryce Kellams

Excellent vocals with great musical support
Really enjoyed the edgey, emotional vocals and much of the lyrics. Zaba's great voice is well supported by clean, exciting guitar work as well. My favorite song is Sorry Charlie. I have already recommended the CD to other women working through difficult childhood experiences. The CD is window into one woman's therapy; an example of making something productive out of anger and trauma.

The world needs this music!
While listening to My Own Skin, I rocked out while being personally moved and inspired. Zaba's lyrics and music give a solid voice to the many who are unable to speak out. The world needs this music!

Blues Bunny

Thoughtful and emotion laden pop with a dark edge.
Thoughtful pop with a dark edge featuring some excellent and often thought provoking lyrics, all delivered with an energetic freshness that helps it stand from the crowd. The opening track “God” is, on the surface at least, a straight forward rock song except it hits you with surprisingly philosophical lyrics when you’re least expecting them. “Voices” is the real highlight however with its emotion laden lyrics and rhythmic changes of pace that elevate it above what you’d normally expect from a pop song. Zaba deserves credit for eschewing the superficial and instead going for music from her heart and the depths of her soul – not for her the easy option of a chorus full of ‘la-la-la’s’ when she has something to say. These songs are catchy enough to grab your attention, yet challenging enough to hold it.

A great first CD. Can't wait for her second.
Her music is from her heart. It personal and its deep. I was moved by the passion of her words and the way she sings her songs. I gave it to my 18 year old son and he loves the CD. He's telling all his friends.
