"The Del Zorros make musical 'Good Company'"

"“Good Company,” the Del Zorro's homey, tuneful new album, shows further signs of careful crafting, and even magic. “You can see all of our influences,” said Bowser, whose twin brother, Lance, completes the duo. (They perform as their alter egos, Stede and Monty Del Zorro.) Early Beatles are an obvious cue, but The Del Zorros also incorporate ‘60s folk (on the title track), romantic pop ballads (“Love and Kindness”) and even country music (“Somerset County”). Both brothers sing, but despite being twins, their voices are distinct while blending well. Lance's vocals tend to be more sensual, while Leigh's are more emotional (“Melvina's New Guitar”) or even comic (“Welcome Home”). Unfortunately, you won't see them playing live very often, but you can listen to and/or purchase “Good Company” at John Staton: 343-2343 On @Statonator"

"The Del Zorros "Good Company" cd album review"

"Their new album Good Company is a love letter to the early sixties – acoustic driven music that’s filled with melody and character. Its crystallized sound, mixed with low slung vocals, recall that era of music when ‘California Dreamin’ was popular. In the middle of the album’s title track I almost expected to hear them sing the lyric “all the leaves are brown.” Songs here seem to either rest easy or jump up and down but equally shine. For all its sappy positivity ‘Love and Kindness’ really stands out as a song, bridging 1950’s crooning with early 1960’s swagger. ‘Man in the Moon’ is sweet, a Mexican flavored lullaby that lends a happily lost at sea quality. ‘Welcome Home’ strolls along, comprised of surf rock guitar and tinkering keys. It seems to embody the fun and philosophy of the duo – making music that’s fun and soothing." "

"Troubadour Twins"

"We both write strong melodies," said Lance Bowser, his hand-held mic kicking back a little reverb as the musicians shared their thoughts about their recent collaboration. "I hear melody all the time," Leigh Bowser said. "I could write 100 melodies a day." Leigh typically writes the lyrics, though they share the copyright like Lennon and McCartney. "We’re interested in hits," Lance said. "Whatever we do is hit material." Out of more than 150 songs they have written together, they polished their top 10 at Castle Lake Recording Studio in Castle Hayne with audio recording engineer Bert Carlin. "We wanted 10 songs that would go together well," Lance said, "and none that were so monster hits that they’d take it all over." The first single to come off "Good Company," is "Back Streets of Liverpool," a tribute to the Beatles, one that allows the Del Zorro twins the full range of their DNA harmony. .

Still working on that hot first release.



We're The Del Zorros, identical twin brothers from New England, who are musicians/ composers/ recording artists currently living in Wilmington, NC.
We've been writing and performing our songs since we were fifteen years old, learning from the best: The Beatles, The Kinks, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel and many other pop and folk artists of the time. We are children of the 1960's who never grew up.
