Fan Fiqtion (from the album Winter Grass)
Fan Fiqtion is the musical unit thst Phoenix, Arizona-based songwriter, Zion Brock, uses to deliver his words and music to the world. Winter Grass is the recent E.P. release from Fan Fiqtion, presents the vocals of various artists to lead the stories on the tracks. Lyrically, Winter Grass hands out tunes of inspiration as Brittany Pfantz spits with an Amy Winehouse-style snarl, encouraging listeners to “Go and Get It” over party-friendly beats. Chord strums create the rhythms for Courtney Cotter King to offer the claim that “Life Gets Better” as the vocalist stays behind the microphone for “Change is in the Air”, letting her voice skim over the island flavored grooves in the songs.
Zion Brock left lessons he learned at home with his musical family and their tendency towards Bluegrass instrumentation, foregoing the sounds of banjo, guitar, fiddle and mandolin to enter the work force as an engineer after college. Over time, the call of music was louder than the ticking of a time clock and Zion worked on honing his songwriting skills. The cuts compiled on Winter Grass follow the beat, the sound for each tune relying heavily on its percussion. Cameron DeGurski is the vocalist for three of the tracks on the E.P. The soulfulness of his voice a good match for the words of Zion Brock as he opens the release offering a song as payment to “Father Time”. Fan Fiqtion put the groove into “Give Me Color” early on in the arrangement as whistles, funky chord patterns and hints at horns paint the song while Winter Grass closes out on a fast track as it heads for the exit imagining the work day in the rear-view mirror for “Being Home with You”.
