Squirrel Nut Zippers continues to share joy, happiness on Lost Songs of Doc Souchon —American Songwriter
The Squirrel Nut Zippers will perform their entire debut album and other uplifting songs.
The musical journey of the Squirrel Nut Zippers began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid-1990s, as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. Jimbo Mathus, along with drummer/percussionist Chris Phillips, formed the band as a casual musical foray among friends and family in the area. It wasn’t long before the band’s quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk-rock leanings spread out of the region and attracted a national audience.
Squirrel Nut Zippers released their newest album, Lost Songs of Doc Souchon, in fall 2020 as the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Beasts of Burgundy (2018). In it are 10 brand-new tracks, a combination of newly penned Zippers songs along with a few tunes from long-gone times.
