“Hope, Struggle and Change” is ninety minutes of Zimmerman originals - funny songs like “Creation Science 101,” “Defenders of Marriage,” and the “Singalong Second Amendment” and impassioned comic commentary.
In thirteen albums over twenty years, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records, and he’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
Roy and his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby have driven 23,000 miles this year, making good on a “campaign promise” to perform in all fifty states. (They made 49!) It’s an analog approach to be sure, but he’s got digital credentials too; Zimmerman’s YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views, and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
In the title song, Roy wears his heart on his Left sleeve. “Hope and Change is what you voted for,” he sings, “...but you know the slogan always needed just one more word: Hope, Struggle and Change.”
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.'"
Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."
