It's never easy to describe a sound and it may be even harder to capture the essence of a person in a short biography, but great music has the unique ability to speak louder and reach deeper than any collection of well crafted paragraphs can. That is why singer/songwriter Zach Ellsworth writes music that seeks to reveal the true character of a loving, just and holy God.

Zach's voice has been compared to that of Darius Rucker (Hootie and the Blowfish) and Mac Powell (Third Day) with a "wow" factor that is equal parts strength and sensitivity. And the music he writes is as diverse as his musical influences which include The Beatles, The Eagles, Keith Green and Led Zeppelin - just to name a few.

And while music is the method that Zach uses to communicate, he is an artist on a mission. That mission is to connect as many people as possible to Jesus Christ - giving each one an opportunity to commit their life to Him. Zach's prayer is that everyone who connects to Christ and commits to Him through his music would then allow God to change their heart.

That mission is at the heart of Zach's upcoming album, Notes on Becoming. Produced by Grammy-winning engineer, Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay), it's an album inspired by God's will for every person's life - that all of us become more and more a picture of Jesus to the people in our sphere of influence, everyday.

One song from the album, "My King", tells the story of what Jesus looked like to those in His sphere of influence - a foot-washing servant, from lowly beginnings, ultimately laying down His life for the ones that He loved. The song serves as an encouragement and example for us to consider others more than we consider ourselves.

But it's the theme track, "One Life Between Us", that tells the story of Zach's life. After battling addictions that almost destroyed his marriage and ultimately led to financial ruin, Zach finally surrendered his relationships, his plans and his prayers to the God that loved him enough to die for him. Now, Zach is slowly working to become more and more like the person God created him to be. And his music invites the listener to do the same.
