Biography

Zackary "Zakki" Augustus Hill, born October 1st, 1993, is an American singer-songwriter from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Having shared the stage with Ke$ha, Jeffree Starr, and the Neon Trees, this young man is a driving force behind the rise of mainstream music in the rock-dominated music scene of Oklahoma City .

Zackary's very first live performance was in 2008 when he played a three-song set consisting of a Lily Allen cover, as well as two of his original songs, to an audience of ten. "At the time, I could not believe that more than five people had showed up! As the MC introduced me to the audience, it was in fact very emotional to find out onstage that there were faces I didn't recognize that had made it out to see the show"  

Though he has shown to be a seasoned writer, Zackary actually does not draw inspiration from traditional singer-songwriters. "I've always had a greater respect for artists that do it all: Sing, dance, pick their own clothes, write their own material, and direct their own lights and stunts. When people come out to my show for the first time, generally they imagine that it'll be just me singing alone to a backing track, and I always look for the surprise in their eyes when it turns out to be me with dancers, stunts, stage effects and of course, fire."

Upon his eighteenth birthday in 2011, Zackary hopped on the first flight out to New York, where he would spend six months gracing several nightclubs, the Times Square subway station, and even the renowned Webster Hall , perfecting his poise by frequenting auditions for TV singing shows as well as Network Television pilots. He paid his bills waiting tables, doing Extra work on film sets, and even had employment as a phone psychic. After being told "no" on dozens of occasions by record labels and casting directors, he laughs "In hindsight, I am kind of glad I wasn't thrust onto the fast track. Between my very first rejection by Glee and now, I have had  the time to truly fine-tune my sound and my live act."

With over one million Twitter followers, Zakki Hill is a social media monster and tours year-round, nationwide.

The Great Stockyard Fire

Written By: Zakki Hill

Verse
It was Sunday morning, I'd just got in
I was out all night, dancing on fire
I had just showered off the smoke
That's when the law came knocking on my door

Do I lie now? Or should I come clean?
This is what's running through my mind
But I'm not scared, cause you deserved it
I smile now as I recall when

Hook
I took a light to that pretty blue mustang
You made your bed, said you had no regrets
Wrote my name all across your plates, "Big Z" "little h"
There would be no mistake

Chorus
Look at all them bright red lights
They're taking our love down from the sky
Don't cry. I guess this is why
They say never try to play with fire
Don't play with fire
Why'd you play with fire?
Don't play with fire

Verse
It was Friday Night, said you were working
So explain the bruises on your wrists babe
You said they'd been there, that they were from me
So what's the big dinner on this receipt?

From where I stand you're the villain
This is the countdown until you see what I've planned
You had me so broke but I couldn't stay low
It hit me as I gazed out the window

Hook
Diesel all around your car
I thought it might be hard, until you tore me apart
I gave you the time of your life, you killed it with a lie
Now I know you'll think twice

Chorus
Look at all them bright red lights
They're taking our love down from the sky
Don't cry, I guess this is why
They say never try to play with fire

Bridge
Remember when I confronted you?
About the strange texts and the pictures too?
I've been doing some thinking and I've made up my mind
I'm gonna do it like you and deny, deny. deny
It may be your car that got burned up , but it was me who combusted
Should I feel bad for a liar?
This is what you get when you play with fire

Hook
I took a light to that pretty blue mustang
You made your bed, said you had no regrets
Wrote my name all across your plates, "Big Z" "little h"
There would be no mistake

Chorus Twist
Look at all them three bright lights
Blue red and white, as they're reading my rights
Don't cry, I guess this is why
They say never try, to play with fire
Don't play with fire
Why'd you play with fire?
Don't play with fire
My best friend is fire
My best friend is fire
