Hacienda, the long anticipated fifth studio record from California Country rockers Zachariah & the Lobos Riders will officially be released March 23, 2019 with a main stage show at the Hotel Cafe.
Produced by Paul Lacques, of Los Angeles folk-country stalwarts I SEE HAWKS in LA, this 12- song LP includes some of lead singer Zachariah Selwyn’s deepest, most personal lyrics he’s ever put to record.
“Hacienda” has roots in Laurel Canyon, Joshua Tree and Selwyn’s hometown of Tucson – a well he has constantly gone back to for inspiration. Songs like “California” and “Reddington” would not have been out of place on 1970’s a.m. radio and others, like the cinematic “Let the Devil Ride” are torn directly from the Sonoran deserts that have inspired Selwyn since his first album, 2002’s excellent GHOST SIGNS.
Lacques’ guitar parts are unmistakable and he brought in the I See Hawks in LA rhythm section for the majority of the record. Dan Wistrom added the flourishes of pedal steel to six of the album’s 12 songs.
Album features: Ben Peeler (Dawes, Jonathan Wilson) Shawn Nourse (Dwight Yoakam, Mike Stinson) Dan Wistrom (Rich Robinson) Paul Marshall (Wanda Jackson) Lucy Woodward (Rod Stewart)
The Lobos Riders live show is not to be missed, as improvised music and lyrics often find their way into the songs. Zach will freestyle, write songs on the spot and keep the audience guessing. The band has performed on WARPED tour, played with Fergie, members of Brian Wilson’s band, Counting Crows, Tom Morello, Everlast, Trailer Park Boys & more. They have being featured in hundreds of TV shows and films.

The long anticipated fifth release from California Country rockers Zachariah & the Lobos Riders, featuring sounds ranging from expansive high desert textures to plenty of up-tempo honk-tonk rockers and classic 70’s Laurel Canyon harmonies. Produced and recorded with Southern California’s leading country-rock folk psychedelic legends I SEE HAWKS IN L.A.
Let the Devil Ride (5:08) Rolling slow-burning desert anthem with shades of early Eagles and hard living-era 70’s Gene Clark. That guitar line alone…
When I Return I Promise You (3:13) Up-tempo pedal steel country-rock love song about coming down… after coming off of the road.
Reddington (4:58) David Lindley’s lap steel protege Ben Peeler converges with Brian Lapin’s piano to bring a lush modern day Echo Park fairytale gone bad story to life. We all know girls like the character in this song…
Outside Dallas (Roll on Clyde) (4:13) Honky-Tonk road rocker about the original outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Thumping Burrito Brothers rhythms accentuated by Paul Lacques signature screaming guitars.
Daddy Died with His Turquoise On (3:30) Pedal steel, fiddle and classic California Country define this instantly friendly personal story about a night Zachariah almost died while wearing way too much turquoise jewelry.
Sound of the Drum (4:25) LA songwriter Lucy Clearwater brings this Petty-like jam to life with her harmonies and fiddle playing. A song about love found at the record store… even though the record store is now torn down.
See You on My Way Back Down (4:04) Originally written for Zachariah’s friend Mondo Cozmo, this anthemic sing-along tells another cautionary tale about youth, dreams and fame in LA. With blues guitar legend Leroy Miller on lap steel.
California (4:16) Part Jayhawks, part Glenn Frey – this country-rocker takes you on the full SoCal tour from the canyons to Hollywood and eventually out to the desert where is slides into the open skies like every California dream.
I Still Get High (4:05) Dan Wistrom’s pedal steel makes no apologies as I See Hawks in LA’s harmonies launch this one into the stratosphere, like a good sativa-friendly hybrid should…
Never Come Back Down (3:34) The acoustic strum alone tells you this song is going to be different, and it harkens back to Zachariah’s earlier, playful rhythms, but with a much more serious subject matter. Running into an old lover at the grocery store… Happens all the time.
Walking on the High Line (2:56) Paul Lacques’ dobro over Zach’s Van Morrison – esque picture of modern day New York City – Where people now stroll along railroad tracks where folks greeted their loved ones from cross country trips 100 years ago. The city grows like the song.
Watch the Horses (3:32) “It’s hard to ride the range/When you’re afraid to take the reigns” Beautiful scenic ballad that immediately puts you in the Sonoran Desert watching the horses run away over the hills… As pretty as pedal steel gets thanks to Dan Wistrom.
