ZASKA blends positive vibes with modern funk, neo-soul, and jazz. Guitarist, songwriter, and producer Max Zaska leads this supergroup of Irish talent with a changing lineup of players that started with the band’s original vocalist, Hozier. My Whole Heart released in May 2020 looks to find the joy in life, even in the face of a pandemic, and is a collaboration of 16 artists across Ireland recording their parts in isolation during the COVID-19 lockdown. ZASKA’s 2019 debut album, It Takes A Village, featured more than 25 performers and was released to universally stellar reviews. It’s a concept album with songs and interludes that combine to tell the very personal story of becoming a father. With a reputation for incredible, high-energy live shows, ZASKA has headlined shows and festivals throughout Ireland. In 2020, opening for and playing with Cory Wong (Vulfpeck) was the last sizeable audience before lockdown. Named one of Ireland's best guitarists, Max Zaska has a B.A. in Jazz Performance from the prestigious Newpark Music Centre in Dublin and played with jazz legends in Brazil, Italy, and Canada. His session work includes The Waterboys “Didn’t We Walk On Water” and Danny G & The Major 7ths “Time The Healer”. Max is busy with session work, providing MD/backing band for narolane’s Denise Chaila, God Knows, and MuRli, and in pre-production for the next ZASKA album. “A benchmark example of the talent that exists in this country”
