was raised in Big Lake, Texas, where he was exposed to plenty of George
Strait, Waylon Jennings and AC/DC. As he debuts this new CD singing
honky-tonk and redneck anthems, it is not a surprise that he was
sneaking into country bars at age 16. His hard-driving & edgy sound
combines different styles of country and rock, making Zach's "Cowboy
Crew" CD a strong style of Texas Country Music. He had some great
players on his "Cowboy Crew" project that include: all players of Darren
Kozelsky's Band, Aaron, Seth, Jeremy & Chris, Roger Dale Ray of Jason
Boland & The Stragglers and Joey Green. The CD was recorded, mixed and
mastered at NOMAD Recording Studio in Carrolton, TX and produced by
The first release from his new CD (coming out early in 2007) "You Look
Better on MySpace" is truly identifiable with the MySpace Generation.
It expresses the feelings that we all have when surfing through the site
wondering what that person is "really" like.
At age 11, Zach signed up for band class and began to read music and
play the trumpet in junior high school. By the time he was in high
school, he competed at the state level and captivated audiences with his
impressive solos. In 1994, now a sophomore in college, Zach picked up
the guitar and knew his musical career was destined to continue. By
2001, he was writing original lyrics and composing original music.
"This whole experience has been a lot of work, but an absolute blast,"
Zach says. "Working with all of the guys in the studio was a lot of
fun. Darren's band is very talented, not to mention, I was a little
nervous when Roger Ray came out to record the steel guitar part."
Zach enjoys writing music by himself as well as co-writing with other
people (not necessarily artists). "Co-writing keeps an artist's songs
original from each other. If you write ALL of your own music by
yourself, your song-style and arrangement is too familiar. If you write
with other people, each song sets itself apart from the others," Zach
expresses. "Of course, there are exceptions," he adds.
