Zero Detail - Summer/Fall 2018

We in Zero Detail have been quite busy over the last few months. We played several huge venues like White Oak and Warehouse Live, and now we’re taking a break to record. The summer brings some traveling opportunities for me, so while we are taking a break from live shows, we’re using this time to write and record new music for everyone! We’ve got several irons in the fire, including two track by yours truly. You’ll have new Zero Detail in your ears by the end of the summer, and a few more tracks before the year is up. We are also actively booking for the fall, so if you #needZD in your life, contact any one of us, or Andrew at AndrewGarcia@zerodetailmusic.com

Episode 6 - Marissa Stubbe

Marissa and I sit outside and discuss things such as theatre, training, some good shows, and of course (and obviously) joy nuggets! We're huge comedy fans, so you hear a bit of that in the conversation, but she has some nice insight about how it is working with musicians and being around music, but not being a 'professional musician' (what does that mean, anyway?). It was a good time in a lovely, albeit sneezy place in Houston.

Music In Our World! - Episode 1: Heather Woitena - 20 January 2017

Guys I'm super excited to present our first episode! The audio quality isn't exactly perfect, but the rest of them will be much better. Heather and I have a fun talk about harp, chamber music, gigging, and other musical things! I had originally planned to have a new episode every week, but for now, I'm going to stick to the twice-a-month approach, especially while I'm getting settled in and waiting to find out where I'm going to school in the fall. Please let me know if you have any comments or questions, and enjoy episode 1!

Pieces we talked about in the episode:

Heather's Bio:

Heather Woitena was born and raised in Pasadena, Texas. She began playing the harp at the age of eleven in fifth grade at the instigation of her music elementary school teacher. She earned her Bachelor of Music in Music Performance at Sam Houston State University, and she studied under Paula Page, the former harpist of the Houston Symphony. Following graduation in 2015, she performed with the Talis Festival & Academy in Saas-Fee, Switzerland and moved to Indiana to work as the Alumni Relations Coordinator for the MasterWorks Festival in 2015 and 2016.
