Zephaniah OHora
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Zephaniah OHora on Thursday September 27, 2018 at The Albert S George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. Classic country has a new contemporary hero in Zephaniah OHora. The debut album from the NYC song slinger has been dubbed a "modern classic country masterpiece," earning OHora widespread critical acclaim and appearances at major US and European festivals in 2018.

Saving Country Music calls This Highway, "classic country mastery and in a live review wrote, "Zephaniah OHora live is everything you want him to be like with his record: its a completely indefinable, indescribable something-ness that all those old greats had.

After listening to This Highway, one might wonder how could such and album come out of New York? To find the answer, take a trip to Brooklyn and visit honky tonk bar, Skinny Dennis, named after Guy Clarks bass player Skinny Dennis Sanchez. OHora has been the director of music programming and resident artist since the doors opened in 2013.

It's no surprise then that OHora has spent years honing his craft, performing classic country with some NYC's best musicians. From his Western Swing and Ray Price tributes with Honeyfingers, to a Red Simpson era truck driving country collaboration with Jim Campilongo (co-producer of This Highway), to his current weekly residency with his group The Last Roundup Boys, who perform three hours of Merle Haggard classics and obscurities.

The last several years of dedication and immersion in the form resulted in the impressive debut, which Wide Open Country declared "classic country perfection". The thought and precision of the work has distinguished OHora other among critics from other artists on the scene. "Rest assured that Zephaniah OHora is no put-on, Howdy Doody show relying on styling and vintage duds for his country authenticity. This is a singular singer, songwriter, and performer," wrote Saving Country Music, an observation echoed by American Songwriter. Channeling the country icons of decades past is something of a trend these days, but only a handful of artists are able to pull off such homage without devolving into mimicry. Brooklyns OHora is one of those artists.
