Formed in 2011, by vocalist and instrumentalist Taylor Rea, Zhora was introduced to North Texas audiences as a pop-electronic duo working in Dallas, Texas. By 2012, the group’s high-energy shows and genre bending aesthetics garnered them a Dallas Observer Music Award nomination and a slew of memorable shows as regional music fans started to take notice of Rea’s latest project. With a reputation for high-energy performances and striking visual imagery with addictive melodies, Zhora’s music gives Dallas fans a thirst for a fresh pop voice and new and exciting flavor.
Former Neon Indian guitarist, Ronnie Heart “discoes to his particular brand of throwback-’80s R&B/funk/rock while picking out squealing solos on his guitar and singing. If you’re thinking, “Prince,” you would be correct.” The 28-year-old Fort Worthian, though, is much more interested in the creative force that drives us all than in little red Corvettes, and he goes much deeper than the inside of a raspberry beret. Creative energies? Funk? R&B? Rawk? That’s Ronnie Heart. ” – FWWeekly.com
