Jam-packed with Zreczny’s engrossing and often unconventional tunes, Aftershocks showcases his talent for breathy vocals that belie the seriousness of his subject matter and a warbling intimacy that draws comparisons to Elliot Smith or Neutral Milk Hotel.
She told Zreczny that his songs were beautiful and then Zreczny couldn’t believe what he was hearing when Bean asked him to teach her the songs so she could play them at her next show and then asked him to join her and her band on stage.
Zreczny started to test drive playing out at open mic nights and from there, there was no turning back. Zreczny started playing out more and soon thereafter was joined by long-time collaborator Jason Steele on guitar. Together they recorded Zreczny’s first record, The Arbor Sessions in 2014.
Zreczny began landing more gigs at beloved venues like Uncommon Ground, The Elbo Room, The Gallery Cabaret, The Red Line Tap and the popular Old Town Art Fair and eventually filled out the band with Nick Kabat on drums and Mark Burns on bass. "I know everyone says this, but it’s true, I really love the band. My favorite part of the whole thing is bringing in a new song and watching what happens, how it changes and how it feels all based on what Jason, Nick and Mark do.” bluefront has performed at The Cubby Bear, Subterranean, The House Cafe, Uncommon Ground and The Old Town Art Fair, among others, and appeared on WGN Radio and the Chicago Acoustic Underground podcast.
Over the years Zreczny has created an imaginative and truly original body of work with lyrics that often put a new twist on age-old sayings, giving them a fresh, surprising new meaning.
