"Buttery bass-driven bumpers topped by a smoothly crooning voice, Zion Rodman‘s songs go down like sweet barrel-aged bourbon.”

Zion Rodman established himself as a soulful folk-rock musician in Boston. While he lived in New England, he performed at historic folk venues like Club Passim and Caffe Lena, and shared the stage with Ellis Paul and Jeffrey Gaines. Zion has lived in Chicago since the fall of 2017, where he quickly became an integral part of the folk/rock music scene and came out in 1st place at the Uncommon Ground 2018 Open Mic Competition.
