"Almost Famous"

Guitarist-vocalist Michael Horvath recruited longtime friend Kurt Otto [Drums] for his project LESSONS FROM ZEKE, recorded songs at DML Studios in Escondido [CA.] and filled out the lineup with Dave Prince, guitar and vocals and Danny Costido, bass. Horvath spoke.

Q: Why do you play music?

A: The day I stole my brother's guitar at about 10 years old, I never gave it back and I never looked back. It was a way to channel all that I didn't understand about life after my dad passed away. Writing music gives me a way to look back at things with an even deeper understanding as to what I was feeling at the time and why. To be able to share those emotions and feelings with complete strangers leaves me quite vulnerable, but at the same time, I find it completely intoxicating.

Q: What is your favorite album of all time? And would we be able to tell by listening to your music?

A: "Let It Be" by The Beatles. Something magical was captured on that album. The Beatles' songwriting was the basis for so much of what is now rock'n'roll. Listen to the harmonies, the second guitars, the song structures, it's all there and it has been copied over and over with so much success for so many bands. Including mine. So I guess maybe you could hear something there.

LESSONS FROM ZEKE simply could not wait any longer. Early in 2006, exploding with ideas and a vision, singer, guitarist and bassist Michael Horvath summoned his long time friend and drummer Kurt Otto to record LFZ's first EP. The two headed off to D.M.L studios In Escondido CA., where they hooked up with Don Lithgow, an accomplished engineer whose earlier credits include bands Blink 182 and New Found Glory. The end result is an offering of bittersweet songs that tell a story with huge guitar riffs and tasty vocal harmonies. These and more come to life in a live show that is nothing short of musical genius; It will have you humming right along. Alternative guitar tunings and harmonies that you just don't hear everyday make this band stand apart from the rest. Highlights for the band include performing at the Adams Ave. Street fair and being featured in two issues of The San Diego Union's Night and Day publications. A new album is to be released in 2010.
