Born in the Chicago area, Zach's family moved to Saint Louis in the late 90's. He was trained classically in cello, piano, and voice before picking up the guitar in high school. Inspired by the musical styling of Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Nickel Creek, and many other legends, Zach became enthralled with the instrument. Before long, he founded a bluegrass-inspired folk group and quickly gained a large fan base and notoriety among local musicians. January 2012 he released his first solo album "Songs About You" which is free to download at his website. He is a graduate of commercial guitar at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee and is currently playing shows around the Nashville area and across America.
