Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist/producer Zack Miranowic, a hard rock-n-metal guitarist and vocalist has released his new Single/EP, Cryin’ Out, that showcases his versatility as a musician. The EP features a departure from his signature sound of hard rock and heavy metal, with a focus on acoustic and singer-songwriter-esque styles. However, the final track, “A Matter of Life and Death,” you will note strikes an incredible piece of guitar work that leads you to an unexpected musical cadence.
You will find the interwoven measures of bands such as Pink Floyd, and Rush throughout Zack’s distinct sound, as these were two bands who heavily influenced much of Zack Miranowic’s song-writing and style.
“With this EP, I aimed to try something a little different following my debut album, which was very much a hard rock and heavy metal record. This time around I wanted to dial back the distortion and try to do something more acoustic oriented and singer- songwriter-esque. The exception to this is the final track, “A Matter of Life and Death,” which totally throws the listener a curveball. I also wanted to pay homage to progressive rock bands like Rush and Pink Floyd, where they have one grand masterpiece followed by shorter, simpler songs. In my case, I reversed this trend.”
Zack Miranowic is a hard rock/metal guitarist and vocalist from Southampton, NJ. He is currently the lead guitarist for NJ based bands, Disciples Of Verity (ft. Corey Glover), Sekond Skyn, and is the other half of the ethereal art-rock duet, Riversend.
When Zack is not working on his bands and various projects, he is working on his own solo material under his own name. Zack released his debut album, Fear, in late 2022 and his follow up EP titled, Cryin’ Out. Along with his musical endeavors, Zack also maintains an active social media presence on sites like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, offers session guitar work, and gives online guitar lessons.
