The career of Zephaniah OHora has just begun, but he's undoubtedly off to a good start. It seemed like he was just there all of a sudden - this 30-something-year-old from Brooklyn, New York who looks equal parts like Nick Cave and Willy DeVille and released a monster of a debut album with "This highway", one of the most cherished and acclaimed country music releases in decades.

And, perhaps the best part: He does it without posing as someone he's not - there's no perfectly shaped cowboy hat or pretend southern slang here, if you get the drift. Just an honest man with an honest voice, singing honest lyrics to a steady countrypolitan beat in front of a crowd who keeps falling in love with his music as the songs progress.

Everything else aside - that's how you do it. "Unique and cathartic" were the words Glide Magazine used to describe the phenomenon that is Zephaniah OHora, and we couldn't agree more.
