Trev Lukather, Jules Galli, Sam Porcaro, and Josh Devine all knew each other previously, but it wasn’t until they got together for a jam session that ZFG was conceived. They spent a day playing together with no preconceived notions about what would result. They phrased it as “Zero fucks given”. Well what resulted was musical chemistry, and that open-minded outlook became their moniker: ZFG.
Having released two songs already, “Holehearted” and “Special” it is now apparent just how good that chemistry is. Funk rock grooves and infectious backing vocals are just the first things to jump out at you. These guys can play. Of course when you carry the last name of rock royalty (Lukather and Porcaro) or come from a massive band like One Direction (Devine), people expect good things. These guys deliver that in spades.
Guitarist Trev and lead singer Jules join me via phone to discuss the band so far, their inspirations and future plans. If you like groove infused hard rock with great hooks do yourself a favor and check these guys out!
