I recently moved to Rock Springs, Wyoming. A town in the heart of Southwest Wyoming, and like the rest of Wyoming it too proves difficult to find some good local music, that isn’t country. A little about myself, I am originally from this area, (Early Childhood - Middle of grade school). The majority of my life I’ve had the great pleasure of living in Omaha, Nebraska, a city full of music around every block, and known for a few popular groups as well. “311, anyone?” I just happen to be cousins with Chad Sexton, too. Pretty cool, right? Anyways, back to the present. A couple weeks after moving back to Wyoming, I kind of regretted it. Coming from a large city, where there’s shows every night, and opportunity in the arts everywhere, to come to a whole state that primarily only plays country music, well frankly it sucked to say the least. Until I discovered a popular local group, whom they refer to themselves as, “Zamtrip”. Inspired by classic metal and hard-rock groups we’ve all come to know and love, like Motley Crue, Black Sabbath, Black Stone Cherry, Halestorm, and many others. When listening to this group for the first time, you definitely get that Lzzy Hale vibe. The lead vocalist, Samantha Newman has got some pipes! Even though it seems as if these female vocal-lead hard-rock and metal groups have been popping up all over the place, Zamtrip has proven their ability to run with the Big Dogs. In the very near future, I will be interviewing this incendiary group to get a better understanding of their goals, dreams, and passion for music. You can check them out on their website, with a built-in SoundCloud player included.
