What is Half Zen?
Half Zen delivers energy, excitement, and occasional whimsey through intense lyrics and catchy melodies fronted by the charismatic late blooming singer-songwriter/former administrative law judge Jonathan “Gresch” Greschler. Gresch started vocals in 2013 at 49 after being told he could not sing much of his life. In 2020 Half Zen released the CD “Wesoterica” with 16 original songs written by Gresch and will be releasing a 2nd original CD “Words Last” later this year.
Blending the iconic sound of 80's alternative and classic pop with the untamed energy of punk, Half Zen was a collaborative effort between Gresch and charting Lead Guitarist, Justin Long, also Half Zen’s producer. In 2023, the band expanded including Alan Zismann on Rhythm Guitar, Tim Bennett on the Bass and Jason Plumb on Drums.
