ZVI is a New Zealand born solo artist, a soulful acoustic guitarist and singer songwriter.
He is a classically trained guitarist and has evolved a contemporary style of crossover playing that combines a popular, percussive, classical and Spanish fusion instrumental style with voice and lyrics that explores our deepest emotions.
Instrumental virtuosity with the guitar is always the servant that never obscures the fine structure and melody of his compositions, frequently exploring unusual tunings and both steel and nylon strung instruments. Apart from his passionate focus as an instrumentalist, his life experience has, in recent years provided a rich source for lyrics that touch and give voice to the human soul.
For me, the guitar is not just an instrument…it is an orchestra....
You can also experience ZVI in a unique twist with his side project "The Generation"band featuring Katchafire's original guitarist Grenville Bell. They are a smooth blend of Reggae/soul/progressive music.
