Biography

Music will never let me down, so I will never let it down.
 Zachary Hallam, is an up-and-coming artist from the West Island of Montreal. He started playing guitar seven years ago, when his father bought a guitar for his older sister. Intrigued by the instrument, he watched his father and sister play together.
With his parents being former musicians (the father drummer and mother a lead singer), it's obvious that music's in his genes. Without any lessons, he quickly managed to learn how to write, sing and play his own music.
Upon receiving his first guitar from a friend, a new friendship was created and he never looked back. Influenced by Teddy Geiger and NeverShoutNever, he decided that he wanted to create is own music to express himself about his relationships, break-ups and every little thing in life that makes you want to sing out loud. He started writting his own songs, because he figured, 'why not?'
In 2006, After moving in with one of his friends who had some amazing equipment available at his disposal, he started recording videos of covers and his own music. Today, he has over 17 000 views, not including his videos posted on Facebook.
About a year ago, one of Zach's friends, died of cancer. These events forced Zach to look in the mirror and realize that, there were some changes that had to be made in his life. One of the things that she told Zach is. “You can never take life for granted. If you want something, you have to go out and get it yourself.” This is what makes him who he is today.
Ever since then, Zach wants nothing more than to break through the walls surrounding him and get his music out into the wild for the world to hear.
Zach's music sounds similar to NeverShoutNever, Hedley, and Joe Brooks. All because of the acoustic feel he has to his music.

Lyrics

Light It Up

Written By: Zahary Hallam

(VERSE 1)
I think I made it
But I don't wanna face it
So I just do my thing
I live my life so basic

So don't go telling me
What it is I have to do
'Cause when you look in the mirror
It looks like you just don't have a clue

I'm about to be set on fire
I'm gonna explode
I'm gonna get smashed
Like a Jersey shore episode

(BRIDGE)
Imma hold it down
And just live free
But never stray too far
'Cause success is my key...

(CHORUS)
And light it up ...
And never come down
'Cause nothing is enough ...
When you're lost in the sound

And I won't let go oh oh oh
Just don't let go oh oh oh oh

(VERSE 2)
Ight now hold up
What's with the attitude
I might not be perfect
But that's the life I choose
I know whats good on my side, I'm aiming for the top
Let me hear your voices tonight we are never gonna stop

(CHORUS)
And light it up...
And never come down
'Cause nothing is enough...
When you're lost in the sound
And I won't let go oh oh oh
Just don't let go oh oh oh oh

(CHORUS)
And light it up...
And never come down
'Cause nothing is enough ...
When you're lost in the sound
And I won't let go oh oh oh
Just don't let go oh oh oh oh

I think I made it
But don't want to face it

I miss you by Zachary Hallam

(VERSE 1)
I never thought
It would be this hard
Without you here by my side

(BRIDGE)
I always thought
You'd be here in my heart
But I guess that went away when we fell apart

(CHORUS)
and I miss you went you're not around
and I miss you 'cause you make my world go 'round
and I'll miss you for all those nights we had together
Oh, I thought that we could last forever yeah

(VERSE 2)
My friends are always asking what happened to us
And it's always so hard to talk about
I always think if we were still together
Would things be worse or would they be better

(CHORUS)
and I miss you went you're not around
and I miss you 'cause you make my world go 'round
and I'll miss you for all those nights we had together
Oh, I thought that we could last forever yeah

(CHORUS)
and I miss you went you're not around
and I miss you 'cause you make my world go 'round
and I'll miss you for all those nights we had together
Oh, I thought that we could last forever yeah

I miss you...

Red Dress

Red Dress by Zachary Hallam

(VERSE 1)
Started working at a job 9 to 5
Met her in the staff bathroom
Couldn't let go of those eyes
Of those eyes
Crazy enough we spent new years together
She changed my life all for the better...

(BRIDGE)
But something went and changed her ways
Must've been those three words
I just had to say...

(CHORUS)
She said I wanna take time for myself
So I got shot up on the bookshelf
I never knew that taking time
Meant going out and dancing with other guys

I always tell myself I've gotta move on
But her voice plays in my head just like a song and i sing along
I don't know how I got myself into this mess
But I fell in love with the drunk girl in the red dress

(VERSE 2)
These days it seems like I don't exist
I always tell her off 'cause I'm sick of this shit
I can't let go of it

She's out there having fun on her own
And I was left at home all alone...

(BRIDGE)
But something went and changed her ways
Must've been those three words I just had to say...

(CHORUS)
She said I wanna take time for myself
So I got shot up on the bookshelf
I never knew that taking time
Meant going out and dancing with other guys

I always tell myself I've gotta move on
But her voice plays in my head just like a song and i sing along
I don't know how I got myself into this mess
But I fell in love with the drunk girl in the red dress

(CHORUS)
She said I wanna take time for myself
So I got shot up on the bookshelf
I never knew that taking time
Meant going out and dancing with other guys

I always tell myself I've gotta move on
But her voice plays in my head just like a song and i sing along
I don't know how I got myself into this mess
But I fell in love with the drunk girl in the red dress
