Zach Williams

He has a new album up on iTunes, also available on cdbaby, and I would say this is one album that is a must download for anyone who appreciates solid music. He’s a touch piano man, a touch new folk revival, and a ton of heartfelt lyrics wrapped up into one performer. In the past he was headlining with a band called The Ramparts before he moved to New York to get serious about his career. And from the reviews I’ve heard from personal friends in the NYC area his shows are personable and amazing.

If you’re a skeptic you can head over to his myspace page and listen to some of the tracks that you’ll find on the download ready album. Honestly, his music speaks much louder than my reviews ever could. Please make sure to listen to the stand out tracks Got No Place and Hospital. It’s the type of music you can get lost in. And if you want a little more substantial offering either open iTunes or download the tracks here below. And maybe, just maybe, if you ask nicely I’ll do a few more posts about Zach here and put up the loads of tracks I’ve culled from various web locations.

Trust me on this artist, you will not be disappointed. He is easily in my top five best artists of 2007 and that is a not something I would say lightly.

  1. Zach definitely doesn’t disappoint—especially live. He’s an energetic, heartfelt, funny, and genuine performer, and he’s backed by some musicians with serious chops. RUN to see them for free while you still can.

  2. Billy, you’re spot on. Zach brings the funk and soul of Georgia, and how! I love the energy captured in his new live EP; an energy that he’s found in the past two years here in NYC… which I had the privilege and blessing to experience when he first arrived. It’s something special, raw, and comforting that can only improve by experiencing it for yourself in person.

  3. Though one will definitely leave a ‘Zach Show’ smiling- refreshed and renewed by the performance…the difference maker with Zach is that this is not a performance, it is really him. His heart, his talents, his life experiences, his-self. Athletes encourage one another to “leave everything on the field” – meaning give their all. Zach gives his all, leaving everything on the stage- unselfishly entertaining those in his path. Spread the word.

  4. His songs have the lyricism of Whitman, the mysteriousness of Sufjan Stephens and live, he has the energy of Keith Green.

  5. I do consider all of the ideas you have offered for your post.

    They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters.

    Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
