Biography

Growing up in New York’s Lower East Side and coming from an artistic family, Zack Glass was exposed to a wide variety of music from an early age. By the time he turned 13, he had taken up piano and electric guitar and was beginning to write his own songs. Listening to classic rock and punk music at a young age, his tastes changed when he started going through his parent’s record collection and discovered an array of music including Reggae and African. After high school Zack had the opportunity to travel to West Africa and Latin America several times which greatly influenced his music and led him to play guitar for Reggae and African bands as well as accompanying a steel pan player from time to time. He started his own reggae band and was writing and singing his own songs, but by the end of the 90’s he started to see the limitations of Reggae and began to explore world music. Soon after, he took a leap of faith and began a solo career. Since then, Zack has explored almost every style of popular music most recently being folk, country and classic rhythm and blues. Zack has now come full circle; returning to the blues based music he grew up on. Though young, Zack has already had the honor to play with some of this century’s greatest musicians; Steve Earle, Keb’ Mo’, Patti Smith, Suzanne Vega, Al MacDowell, Andrew Sterman, Mick Rossi and Eddie Bobe. Zack has also had the pleasure to perform with some of todays up and coming stars; Vampire Weekend, The National, and Jazz Trumpeter Mark Rapp.
