Roy Zimmerman writes hilarious, rhyme-intensive original songs that are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable . “Wake Up Call” is a funny, tuneful and unabashedly Progressive look at what Roy and his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby saw and heard across America in the Obama Era. In 2012, they traveled 47,000 miles to complete a 50-state tour of 49 states (Hawaii was “Omission Accomplished,” he says.)

The Los Angeles Times says, “Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society’s foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer.”
Tom Lehrer himself says, “I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually rhyme, they don’t just ‘rhyne.'”
Sing Out! says, “Zimmerman is a guy on the left skewering folks on the right with rapier-sharp lyrics … underneath the caustic satire is a man who is surprisingly optimistic.”
