Zach started playing guitar and writing songs as a ten year old boy in Denver, Colorado. He continued to hone his craft and plucked away at tunes by his first songwriting heroes, Jose Gonzalez and Jack Johnson. While still in high school he released a self titled EP that spread quickly through the Denver community and eventually lead to recording a full length album titled “The Cool Down" with the aid of songwriter and producer Brett Dennen. National tours followed with a mix of headlining and supporting shows. In the past 7 years Zach has opened for a long list of his own musical heroes including Rodrigo y Gabriela, John Butler Trio, Brett Dennen, One Republic, Rogue Wave, as well as Michael Franti and Spearhead at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
In 2014 Zach released “Speed Checked by Aircraft” a Kickstarter funded record about growing up and dealing with creative pressure from external forces. After a brief break came the “Up! EP” in February 2016, a small compilation of songs about self love best summed up with a lyric from the EP’s fifth track “By the Grace” which goes “When your heart is open / And your thoughts are focused / You can heal what’s broken / Only by the grace of your love”.
Zach’s newest album “Artifacts” is a collection of songs recorded all over the U.S. while still on tour. These songs were patiently earned. Because it was recorded in many different cities, the album reflects upon many different periods of Zach’s life. It includes the singles “The Harvest”, “Cigarettes” and “Lips Like Medicine”.
Colorado kid, writing songs and sharing them with the world. A strong contender for the world's luckiest human being.
