Description

Zookeeper, the sometimes-solo, sometimes-jamboree project of Chris Simpson (Mineral/The Gloria Record), draws comparisons to Wilco, Belle and Sebastian, Elliott Smith, and Leonard Cohen. With an affection for piano, horns, and strings that equals his versatility with guitar, Simpson’s always authentic voice takes on what few artists attempt—anything and everything. After a whirlwind Mineral reunion tour that took him around the globe to revisit his indie rock roots, Simpson is nearing completion on Zookeeper's third full-length release, which promises to be his most formidable yet.

SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.
