    American recording artist, Zach Person, is the new face of indie rock. Wielding his electric guitar, Person plays loud, raw and connects with his music fans on a primallevel sonically. His brand new sophomore album entitled, “Let’s Get Loud”, (ReleasedMarch 01) showcases the songwriter's ability to produce a variety of both high energy rock anthems and head-bobbing funk rhythms. Produced by Nashville based rocker,Tyler Bryant, Person describes the album as an audio diary of his mid-twenties, bestowing it the title, “Let’s Get Loud”, as a nod to his musical mantra.

    Zach commences his “Let’s Get Loud ‘24 North American Spring Tour” on April 14 andwill tour Europe / UK in June of 2024. Stay tuned as Zach will be releasing new musicthroughout the course of the year.

    “The spirit of the blues is at the heart of most of my songwriting, therefore a lot of the tracks on this album possess a theme of pain and struggle, and the will to overcome the obstacles ahead of one’s self,” said Person.

    In 2017, he represented the Houston Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge, a competition featuring some of the best blues artists from around the world. This appearance would later afford him the opportunity to perform alongside legends like Buddy Guy and Robert Cray.

    Zach then linked up with drummer and musical collaborator, Jake Wyble, after posting a “Drummer Wanted” call and a chance meeting on Sixth Street in Austin, Texas. The connection ended up being fate as both young musicians realized they were born in the same small town in New Jersey, and have been playing music pretty much all their lives.

    “Playing with Zach is an absolute blast,” said Jake Wyble. “While we each come from very different musical backgrounds, we have a really similar perspective on music and the way we shape it. Our distinct styles fit perfectly. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had playing music and it just keeps getting better.”

    In 2018, Person began touring throughout the United States and Canada, and made a special appearance at Amazon’s AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas with Skrillex, Thievery Corporation, and Future Islands, making him the first live act to have performed the conference. He has also headlined several private events for Fairmont Hotels, Firefly Aerospace, GitHub, SXSW, and AT&T.

    After an appearance at Intersect Music Festival with Foo Fighters, Anderson Paak, Beck, and HER in 2019, Zach returned home to Austin to wrap production of his highly anticipated EP. The EP included the tracks “Can’t Stop Running,” “Send Me Away,” “Let Me Know,” “Back to Me,” and “All Shook Up” and was set to be released early 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

    “‘Send Me Away’ was one of those songs that kind of just comes to you from above,” said Zach. “One night I was up late playing with a looper pedal and trying to write lyrics over the chord progression used for ‘Send Me Away.’ I stumbled across the chorus line and the rest of the song came like a flood.”

    One of the more stand out tracks from the EP was Person’s rendition of a classic Elvis hit: “I had just done a cover of ‘Chest Fever’ by The Band for a special event at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2019,” said Person. “It was received so well, that I was urged by my manager to try and tackle another song by one of the greats. I was given Elvis Presley as a challenge, and in my failed attempt to create my own version of ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ I stumbled across a melody that became the hook for ‘All Shook Up.’”

    While the EP was a strong representation of Zach’s artistry, he chose to expand upon the project and create a full-length album rather than put the music on pause. Throughout the course of the pandemic, he recorded the remainder of the album, including tracks “Wanna Fly,” “Radio Man,” “How Long,” “Long Enough,” “Crossroads,” “Carolina” and “R.D.M.S.”

    “The unprecedented events of 2020 inspired the song, ‘Wanna Fly,’” said Person. “The lyrics encompass various thoughts and emotions that were conceived by a majority of the population as a direct result of the political and social injustices that occurred amidst the already stressful times brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to be a voice of unity amongst the chaos and division that we all were bombarded with in the media.”

    “How Long” is another song that was inspired by 2020. “The year took a big toll on everyone, the music industry included, and everything got tougher,” he said. “This song tells the story of a couple struggling through hard times, but finding their strength in the love they have for each other.”

    The pandemic also allowed Zach time for reflection and appreciation of the music that he grew up listening to and inspires him to create to this day.

    About his song “Crossroads” he said: “I’ve always been inspired by the history and roots of American music, and the story of Robert Johnson has always been especially fascinating to me,” said Person. “I wanted to take my own journey to the ‘Crossroads’ with this song and tell my story at the same time.”

    With the song “Carolina,” Zach wanted to pay homage to his Southern Pines, North Carolina roots (where he lived between the Northeast and Texas) with the style of music that he learned while living there before moving to Houston.

    “‘Long Enough’ was written mostly overnight after deep diving in various music documentaries,” he said. “There’s just something so inspiring about the history of music. There’s an energy that exists of all the echoes of the greats that have made music before you.”

    With his debut project, he has garnered the attention of notable press including American Songwriter, Classic Rock Magazine, American Blues Scene, Guitar World, Premier Guitar, Mojo Magazine, Lyric Magazine, Mercury Magazine, and more.

    The overall success of his LP, has led to additional collaborations with international brands like, Kendra Scott, ACL Live, Austin FC, Soho House, Kimpton Hotels, and BMI.

    Zach is currently on tour in North America, and is scheduled to tour Europe and the U.K. this fall (2022). Stay tuned as Zach will be releasing new singles throughout the course of the year.
