Having spent his late teens and early twenties touring the world with small theatre projects, Budapest resident Daniel Micsoda, aka Zanzinger, started writing songs for himself that soon became noticed by others. With musical influences including American folk genres and experimental jazz, and with literary inspiration taken from English romanticism and American transcendentalism, Micsoda channels the performance attitude of late delta blues greats through all types of modern music in his song writing.

Four years is a lot of time, especially without a new record. But just in case you’re wondering the past four years in the life of Dávid Makó, the Hungarian singer-songwriter known as The Devil’s Trade have been on an intense journey. After “Those Miles We Walked Alone”, his debut full-length saw the light of day in November 2014, not even himself had an idea of the path he is about to take.

Four years is a lot time, especially if you spend it sitting by idly. Now that’s not something that is one of Makó’s fortes, as he spent this long period of time evolving into the artist that he is now. From his self financed CDr’s to a sold out first press of the vinyl version of “Those Miles…”, from his first show as a solo artist at a small venue, playing in between a couple horrible tribute bands to the stages of Europe, touring with the likes of Crippled Black Phoenix and Nathan Gray Collective among many, Makó summoned a different kind of beast. So does he on his sophomore album “What Happened to the Little Blind Crow”.

Makó, who spends his days changing people’s lives and improving their health as a strength trainer, bares his soul on stage and offers a piece of himself night by night and despite the ‘rough-around-the-edges’ look, intimacy, despair and hope never sounded this heartfelt and sincere. Written in nearly every corner of Europe on tourbusses, in tour vans, in the rehearsal space back home, ‘What Happened to the Little Blind Crow’ is the next step in a wonderful journey. From traditional and heartbreaking Transylvanian folk, through Makó’s roots as a doom/stoner singer to the spirits of the Appalachians, this full-length is the manifestation of an artist ever growing, ever evolving and adapting.
