David Zollo made his debut onto the local music scene in 1992 as a member of Iowa City’s band, High and Lonesome. However, his stint with High and Lonesome only lasted until 1994, when pre-cancerous tumors were found in his vocal cords. Zollo is a man of many talents. He is a singer/songwriter/keyboardist with his own band, as well as others. He plays alongside Todd Snider, William Elliot Whitmore, Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey and The Pines. Zollo is also the founder, owner and operator of the underground music label, Trailer Records, and is the producer for the bands The Pines and Brother Tucker. Trailer Records was formed to have a music-as-family sort of feel after his move to Nashville, relocation to his hometown of Iowa City and assemblage back with Bo Ramsey and Greg Brown. Zollo has released six records consisting of songs he has performed and written: Alackaday (1992);
Livefromgabes (1994); and For Sale or Rent with High and Lonesome, and
The Morning is a Long Way From Home (1995); Uneasy Street (1999); and
The Big Night (2002) all covered by his record label, Trailer Records. He is currently working on a new album titled For Hire.
