Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) and Chris Brokaw ( Come ). The album was recorded in Zedek’s home of Boston at Kimchee Records Studio by Andy Hong.
Thalia’s songwriting and performance are the best she has ever laid down.
The masterful Fighting Season features musicians she has worked with since 2015, including longtime collaborator and violist Dave Curry, pianist Mel Lederman, bassist Winston Braman, and drummer Jonathan Ulman.
“Fighting Season”, a term originally coined for the period of time in Afghanistan when winter comes to an end and fighting resumes, is reinterpreted by Zedek with a focus on a rebirth of resistance brought on by the deteriorating U.S, political landscape.
Zedek deftly combines the force of her playing, with an urgency of vocals to spin tales of discord and struggle from the personal to the political.
The potency of her message respects her exceptional songwriting and playing. Thalia’s fervent passion as an artist and as a citizen gives Fighting Season is a compelling narrative set to searing guitar lines and beautiful arrangements.. Turn it up and Fight Back.
