The New Johnny Zapp Single, Run Away

The New Johnny Zapp Single, Run Away

Well it’s been nearly a year since I last updated the news here, and it’s been quite a busy one at that! 2015 began with some major upgrades in my studio which has dealt quite the learning curve. That said, the learning curve can stifle the creativity a bit, but I am on the back end of that now and will be cranking out much new music in 2016, count on it! I did manage to drop one new single in September, called Run Away. The track features yours truly on electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums and vocals with a guest appearance by my pal Nick Torri on lead guitar. Nick absolutely tears it up and delivers the goods with his Gibson 335 on this one. Check it out and download it here.

2015 also saw the end of my relationship with Pump Audio/Getty Images Music. After nearly 8 years, it was time to move on. I am grateful for the opportunities and successes I’ve had with Getty in the past, but I am looking forward to much bigger things ahead!

In other news, with the new year came the addition of a new magazine to my growing resume. Vintage Guitar magazine has been keeping me busy working with greats like Scott Holiday of the Rival Sons, Craig Ross of Lenny Kravitz, Peter Stroud of Sheryl Crow’s band and J. Geils to name a few. It’s a lengthy list of guitar playing, influential, songwriting icons that I am proud to now call friends. If you don’t subscribe, I suggest you start!

I’m also contributing a Chivalrous Life column to the quarterly publication, Beauty Mark, founded by Editor-in-Chief, the lovely international lingerie model, Ruby Roxx. Ruby is a stunning plus-sized model, an amazing woman and always an absolute pleasure to work with. So happy she reached out for me to be part of one of her new endeavors.
