    Zach Broocke to Release "WatchDogLookOut" on Dualtone Records - Broocke has been compared to Chris Isaak and Elvis Costello

    Independent artist Zach Broocke will release his fourth album WatchDogLookOut on Dualtone Records.

    Having been involved in the music business for thirteen years and splitting his time between Nashville and Los Angeles, Broocke has cultivated an outstanding team to complete his current project.

    Contributors to WatchDogLookOut include producer/engineer Chad Brown (Ryan Adams, Faith Hill), percussionists Ken Coomer (Wilco, Steve Earle) and Fred Eltringham (The Wallflowers, Rivers Cuomo), upright bassist Frank Swart (Morphine, Norah Jones), keys guru Curt Perkins (Josh Rouse, J.J. Cale), guitarist Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin, Martina McBride), complete with the mastering being done by Andrew Mendelson (Van Morrison, Rolling Stones). With a half-dozen more ancillary players, the team's total discographies account for well in excess of 40 million records sold.

    Color us impressed.

    "This team has provided us with a record that is live, honest and refreshing. At the end of the day, while it may remind one of 'famous’ records, it stands as a composition that is all its own," said Chad Brown.

    Without outside representation and funding, Broocke has become an expert at putting together top-notch recordings on a shoestring budget along with proven dedication, time, energy and strong relationships. He has released one full-length album and two EPs, has toured nationally in elite coast-to-coast venues and has placed his material in many films including Feast of Love and Henry Poole Was Here.

    Broocke's previous work has been well-received by critics with comparisons to Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello and Chris Isaak.

    1. Freeway Outta Town
    2. Bitter Pill
    3. Four Leaf Clover 4. Like A Stone
    5. Hallelujah
