Zapa – The Long Trick (VULP-0075)
Zapa’s The Long Trick is a new acoustic album from Zapa. I have been consistently blown away by his talents since his early release at the very beginning of Vulpiano Records in 2009. Zapa has also released a tribute to poet W. B. Yeats in 2013, with poetry sung and set to music.
Zapa’s voice and command of the guitar is beautiful and always impressive, particularly on my favorite track on the album “Ghosts”. Do yourself a favor and pick up this release if you are interested in folk with heart that hearkens back to old-school folk and, at times, psychedelic sensibilities.

Zapa – Words: A Tribute to W.B. Yeats (VULP-0046) is a beautiful acoustic album, setting the poetry of William Butler Yeats to music. Miguel Zapata hails from Spain and is now located in London. This is the second Zapa release on Vulpiano Records after quite awhile, the first being 2009 compilation Songs 2006-2009. I am very pleased to offer this sweet tribute to a great poet by this talented fellow here on Vulpiano. I recommend checking out his incredible art as well.

Another Vulpiano Records release: VULP-0003, a compilation of tracks from Zapa (originally from Spain, now in the UK), another musician I have collaborated with that I am ~ecstatic~ to have on the label! I previously described him on AFIN as having “a lovely delivery of lyrics, and a softly psychedelic style that is a perfect chill-out soundtrack”. Go have a listen for yourself!
