Johnny Dock and Linda Zapf, a husband and wife team from Bucks County PA, have recently spent 2 weeks at The Parlor Studio recording their first collaborative project, Veil of Time. Though Johnny has done four solo CDs and Linda one of her own, the impetus to finally do a joint project is in celebration of their 25th wedding anniversary. Produced by personal friend and local Nashvillian, Brent Moyer, the project includes both artists on guitar, Susan Cowsill on vocals and Johnny Sansone on blues harp.
Of the 12 songs that make up Veil of Time, six were written by Johnny, six by Linda and though none were joint writing efforts, the thread of love, family and life relationships runs through each song. They created what they consider a “record of a period of time…a snapshot of parts of life”. A fitting description since even their son Gabe is involved as the photographer for the celebratory epic.
While their producer, Brent Moyer, is performing on the Broadway stage in Ring of Fire, The Songs of Johnny Cash, you’ll find Johnny Doc and Linda Zapf back in Nashville after the New Year promoting their new release, Veil of Time. Keep an eye out for live showcases around town by the end of January.
You’ll be able to purchase the finished product, as well as previous releases by both artists, online at Johnnydock.com, LindaZapfFranklin.com and on their joint web space doczapf.com.
