ZACHARY RICHARD

LAST KISS

2009-04-21

ZACHARY RICHARD LAST KISS Last Kiss is the first English disc from one of the premiere Louisiana storytellers and troubadour Zachary Richard. Zachary’s voice has never sounded better and his stories can still pull his listener’s into each song. The track “The Levee Broke” is another compelling Katrina track that features a full backing church choir where Zack proclaims that the only way he is leaving Louisiana is if he is swept away in the mud. The title track “Last Kiss’ is an up-tempo frightening track of looking for that last kiss before darkness comes. “Acadian Driftwood” is a cover of the classic Robbie Robertson preformed by the Band and features none other then Celine Dion on vocals. Avid fans of Zachary may miss the energy found on the classics “Snake Bite Love” and “Women in the Room” but will still be rewarded by the voice and stories of one of Louisiana’s finest.
