Biography

Zack Leffew began his music career early. As a child he found he had an aptitude for just about any instrument he picked up and loved to sing. He toured worldwide for several years with the Atlanta Boy Choir and later the Georgia Boy Choir. But the guitar is where his passion settled and today Zack is a guitar god specializing in acoustic rock, instrumental rock and jazz fusion.

His concerts feature the guitar. And while he is equally comfortable in an acoustic setting belting out some melodic tunes supported by his near pitch perfect vocals, what really lights his passions are long improvisation jams guarenteed to get the crowd on their feet, if not melting their faces.

Zack often performs alone with his Acoustic Guitar, loop station and backing tracks for intimate gatherings creating a melodic atmosphere for parties, resturants, and events.

But with the full band, the music explodes. This talented group of musicians know how to creating the intimate moments for slow romantic dances as well as the "get-on-your-feet" and jump igniting rock/jazz jams.

Zack, a student at Berklee College of Music, was accepted to Berklee and awarded an audition scholarship in December 2009.

Some of Zack's influences are John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Steve Vai, Santana, Jeff Beck, Wes Montgomery, Joe Satriani, Journey, AC/DC, Metallica, Dream Theater, AX7 and much, much more.

Currently playing with ZLB is Jamacian native Edson Lalor with over 30 years of jazz/rock percussion experience. He is joined with Georgia native Scott Samuels an accomplished jazz/R&B composer with over 25 years of Bass playing, jaming and recording. Rounding out the team is Noel Gilliam with 25+ years on the keyboard, leading Praise & Worship services, directing choirs, etc. Noel also makes the Alto Sax sing.

Indescribable

Indescribable By Zack Leffew ©2010 All Rights Reserved

There's a girl
Who lets me run my hands through her long blonde perfect hair
And there's a girl
Who lets me sing love songs to her all night long
And she's no ordinary girl
She's Indescribable
And I just don't deserve this love
She's Indescribable

She's got a smile
She could have ten thousand men run ten thousand miles
But looking at her
All I see is her looking back at me
And She's no ordinary girl
She's Indescribable
And I just don't deserve this love
She's Indescribable
So Indescribable

I love the way that her lips taste
It always makes my heartbeat race
She steals my kisses all the time
But thats just fine because she's mine
And I just don't want anything
But to sing this melody
For my sweet little honeybee

And she's no ordinary girl
She's Indescribable
And I just don't deserve this love
And I just don't deserve this love
And I just don't deserve this love, oh
She's Indescribable, So Indescribable

Far Away

Written By: Zack Leffew

Far Away By Zack Leffew ©2010 All Rights Reserved

Fast asleep by the fire
Wake up life is happening now
The simple way has turned its back today
And I don’t know why
Just look at me and let me give my plea
(Chorus)

Chorus
I’m Far Away, so far away
And I don’t wanna be far away
I’ll be okay again someday
But not until I can say
I’m not far away

If you told me goodbye
It might help time go by
‘Cause love’s amazing, love’s astounding, my love
But life and love don’t love each other
(Chorus)

Ooo,ooo,oooo

Read me loud and clear
I will always be here
Plans change but mine will always stay the same
And so far I don’t even care that I’m
(Chorus 2)

Chorus 2
Far away, so far away
And I don’t wanna be far away
I’ll be okay again someday
But not until I can say
I’m not far away, I’m not far away
And we’re always gonna be okay
‘Cause I will never have to say that
I’m far away, I’m never far away
And I’m always here to stay
Ooo, ooo, oooo
