I wrote my first post about Zach Williams on November 13th of 2006. It was a post written back in my early years as a music blogger, but I still believe what I wrote almost five full years ago. Zach Williams has a certain undeniable charm in his music and from what I have gathered he puts on an intimate and impressive live show where everyone walks away feeling better about their day. That’s a quality that we are certainly lacking in the modern music scene.
Over the years his music has changed, his life and location has changed, as has most of the world. Just has he has moved and grown so have I. My musical taste has evolved and grown into something I would not have imaged five years ago. Whatever our many years have done to us I still find a certain place in my heart and my playlists for Zach Williams (and his new group named Zach Williams and the Bellows).
Both of these tracks hail from his inaugural and eponymous 2006 debut. He has released a few other albums along the way, but I always return to the original from time to time. As it happens he is currently in the studio recording a new album to be released later this year. And he has a kickstarter campaign which invites fans to come and join in financing the album. For those not familiar with kickstarter or the way that many musicians use the service you can think of it as this: You are basically preordering an album. When the artist has enough “preorders” they can then afford the process of creating the album (which you have paid for / funded).
