The First Dirty Dozen

290 pages1 hour


For over 15 years, Canadian singer-songwriter Brock Zeman has traveled all over North America and beyond, playing almost 200 dates a year in venues large and small, satisfying his loyal fans and making new ones wherever he goes. Zeman delivers his hard-hitting songs with exceptional passion and skill. Poignant, driving, irreverent or humorous (sometimes all of the above), his songs tell us stories that leap from the stage right into our hearts.

Collected here for the first time are the lyrics from his first 12 albums. These songs jump off the page as easily as they do the stage - you just can't hold a good storyteller down.

"Not many people can do what Brock Zeman does… These are good songs - really good songs."

- Frank Gutch Jr., No Depression

"His songs have more depth than can be realized first time through, which only enhances with each listen."

- Steve Tennant, Penguin Eggs

"He's a storyteller, an observer who sings real-life struggles about characters you care about."

- Bob Mersereaux, The Top 100 Canadian Singles
