Biography

"I'm not a big fan of bluegrass, but I really like your music." is a phrase ZD & TQT hear frequently. That's because twenty years ago when Zach lived in Maryland he was influenced by the sounds of both traditional country music, and bluegrass which was played in there home. “We lived in a split level house that had a big carpeted basement in it, and my step dad would invite some friends over and they would bring there instruments and he would play guitar and sing. They might sing Silver Wings by Merle Haggard, and then play something like Rank Strangers by the Stanley Brothers. The way I grew up, I never really knew there was a big difference between bluegrass and country music.” said Zach. That view has shaped the sound that ZD & TQT have made with there album NEW TRADITION, which runs through 11 songs that intertwine the country and bluegrass sound. “I really tried to find and write some songs that could be either bluegrass, or country depending on the way that they were played and arranged. I felt that as long as it stayed true to the traditional side of either genre, it would work well together.” said Zach.

Since the release of there new album, ZD & TQT have been performing at numerous county, and state fairs, bluegrass festivals, and concert series. One of the highlights of this past year’s tour was being invited to the Oregon Jamboree in Sweet Home. Zach said “We really felt grateful that we were being invited to the largest country music festival west of the Mississippi, especially since there had never previously been any bluegrass bands performing on that stage.”

The album also has been doing well. Since the official release in June of 2006 it has been getting airplay on bluegrass and country stations across the nation. From Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Kansas, Washington, and New Jersey to name a few, DJ’s from across the country have had nothing but praise to give this latest project.

“KASU did receive and add to rotation Zach’s CD. It’s a wonderful CD and a perfect fit for the sound of my bluegrass radio show. I’m playing cuts 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11. Thanks for sending it, and remember KASU when you’ve got new music available in the future.

KASU Program Director

“I think the CD is great. I have played it several times on my show. I always mention the website so folks can order the CD. My show airs in Yakima, Tri-cities, and Newport Washington, also Lewiston, Id, Albany/St. Cloud Minn., Dos Palos Calif., and Montgomery, Ala.”
