Nashville & Beyond! 

I'm making progress on many fronts. Today I sent my 2nd newsletter to my freshly organized list. Are you on it yet? See the sign up form at the bottom of this page. It won't be spammy I promise.

It was nice to hear back from so many friends after my last missive in June. I'm energized for the upcoming shows. When I'm in Nashville for the Radio Cafe show I'm also psyched to finish recording 4 new songs with engineer Gabe Masterson, drummer Josh Cobb and bass player James Haggerty.

Check the upcoming events list above for all the show details - see you in Nashville, Asheville and Chapel Hill!

Interweaving exuberant melodies with piercing insight, The Zealots' 2018 release “Jawbone” is the most recent evidence of the range of George Terry McDonald's songcraft. The 14 songs on this, their 4th album, delivers a cohesive body of work which expands and intensifies their vision. From folk-rock to reggae, to ska, punk and jangle-pop, the diverse styles of “Jawbone” are unified by its determination to explore our fraught relationships with our culture and each other. Themes of greed, inhumanity, self-deception and abuse are the evils on which “Jawbone” sets its sights.
