When Driftwood released its first full-length album, Rally Day, recorded in their hometown of Binghamton, a unique sound transpired that reflected not only the working-class ethos of an upstate New York town, but a coalescing of identity, influence, and uninhibited musical spirit.

“It’s sometimes tough to keep any sort of focus on style or sound when you have three different songwriters,” guitarist Dan Forsyth conceded. Longtime friend and banjoist Joe Kollar offers, “I consider our sound to be more of an attitude and an approach – the result of all of our influences in a completely open musical forum where the only stipulation is to create it from the heart.” “Really Driftwood is a song based group,” fiddler Claire Byrne added incisively.

And even though they come from different directions, the three founding members – along with bassist Joey Arcuri – tend to end up at the same place.

That unity, as well as the joy derived from playing together, can be heard throughout City Lights. It takes them on a familiar road and serendipitous evolution, replete with folk, old-time, country, punk, and rock, depending on their personal moods and their songs’ needs.

Zack Dupont a Burlington, VT based, independent songwriter and guitarist. Active since 2008, music has lead him all over America to festivals like SXSW, The Cambridge River Fest and Grand Point North sharing the stage in support of nationally touring acts like Taj Mahal, Sturgill Simpson, Grace Potter, Blake Mills, Suzanne Vega, Julian Lage, Jerry Douglas, Bahamas, Sam Amidon and Pat Benatar to name a few. Poetic lyrical imagery, finger style guitar work and a comforting-humorous stage presence creates a working landscape in which Dupont dwells.

“I want to create music that is a sound track of the human brain and experience. I have a strong belief that people should be able to see or hear themselves in the songs without any limitations. It’s an environment where people are free to be exactly where or who they need to be in that shared moment. “ - Zack Dupont

“Simply put, Dupont is an elite guitarist. Here and throughout the album, his attention to dynamic subtlety — in addition to immaculate technical polish and engaging melody lines — is remarkable.

Similarly, Dupont’s vocal performance is intimate, nuanced and affecting. He appears to take as much care with his hushed delivery as he does with his impressively understated guitar work.

Each of his talents works fully in concert with the others. Imagine M. Ward collaborating with Iron and Wine. The word you’re looking for is, sublime.” -Dan Bolles, Seven Days VT
