Band Of Horses, Thrice, Stereophonics
Band/Management/Booking/Press: [ zesttheband at gmail.com ]
ZEST is an alternative rock band where the melodies and rhythmic foundations are the protagonists. Our influences are very varied and do not belong to a particular style. Our references range from classic rock and pop with Anglo-Saxon roots, alternative folk, contemporary alternative rock, blues roots and soul sometimes. For us the main thing is to work for the song as a whole.
ZEST was born in 2015 from the desire to explore musical fields on a personal level, the enthusiasm of Gorka Vich (Voice and Guitar) and Jaume Tugores (Guitar) to creatively express their own material was strengthened after the union of Pedro Moya (Drums) and Manel Barjacoba (Bass) who contributed their strength at the compositional level and gave rise to the first stage of ZEST. Despite being a new band, although composed of musicians with many filming and years of experience playing, the first year of the formation was very moved, participating in some local festivals, supporting several national and international groups and recording their first live demo with Sergio Ruiz (Tacosanto).
In 2016 they record their first videos, four songs in “Live Session” in Diorama Sound studios with Toni Salvá. Enric Hernaiz (Bass), who has finished closing the circle of the band in both composite and direct level, becomes part of the family in the place of Manel.
At the moment, the group enjoys its consolidated formation and it is being explored in all its creative lands giving life to new songs soon to be able to record a work of more weight and that shows the personality of ZEST. Until that moment arrives you can enjoy its essence watching them rock live, which is where they have a better time.
