SXSW 2015: Interview with Chris Simpson of Zookeeper
Austin local, Chris Simpson is best known for his past projects with influential emo-band Mineral and more indie rock inspired band, The Gloria Record. His solo project, Zookeeper, is a 180 turn to his previous music. The songs are shorter, lighter, and tell fresh stories. Zookeeper experiments with new sounds, and is ever changing. Simpson isn’t restricted by a certain genre, because it can change depending on how he changes and grows. Simpson will always be the center, but is orbited by a group of talented musicians that help him achieve his goal. Pink Chalk, his latest album, is beautiful and makes you question, “What inspired this song?” because it’s unique perspective.
