Mike Zito's departure from Royal Southern Brotherhood may have been sudden, but given the exciting path ahead of him, it was certainly with good reason.
Mike Zito talked with Country Fried Rock just before the announcement that he was leaving Royal Southern Brotherhood, a departure with no drama or backstory, other than a guy who finally found what he wanted to do musically and the craziest opportunity blossomed right in the middle of it. Zito's growth as a musician really started after getting sober, and that clarity allowed him to find and follow his truth, which he describes as wandering the road of Texas blues. When it became clear that Royal Southern Brotherhood had legs beyond a novelty supergroup, he ushered in Bart Walker and stepped away to continue down his own route.
