I'm an Indie Pop / Rock mixer and drummer based in Nashville! I have worked with artists and bands at many different levels, mixing and/or playing drums. If you are looking for a quality mix, or needing live drums or percussion on your project, let's work together!
I'm Zach! I'm a musician in Nashville, TN. I play drums and run playback for a pop artist named Kyd the Band. Before the touring world shut down, we were touring with artists like NF and Lennon Stella across the states and Europe.
Though live drumming is my main gig, I also love making and working on music production. I have lots of experience mixing songs for artists across multiple genres (indie pop, indie rock, hip hop) as well as remote drum tracking and drum programming.
Additionally, I am experienced with vocal tuning, vocal comping, mastering, engineering, and creating live playback sessions for your live show.
I am experienced and actively work in both Ableton Live and Pro Tools.
I love making music on all levels, and I am available for any project on any budget. I understand that money is very tight right now, so I am willing to be flexible and make things work.
If you need multiple things done to your song, like vocal tuning + comping, we can work on bundle deals. Just let me know what you need and I will be happy to help make it happen.
If you have any other questions please contact me!
Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

Zach was great! He was super friendly and very understanding of what I was looking for. Any changes I wanted to make, he was on top of it. I would definitely work with him again!
Zach was super great to work with! His Mix on this song turned out SOOOO good. Not only was the mix done great but he was also great to collaborate with on ideas and creative elements to the song. Will def be using him in the future for any other songs I need mixed.
I've worked with Zach on a few different projects and every single time he is kind, professional, and the results are always killer. He played drums on one of my recent tracks and absolutely nailed the performance. I've also worked with him to add some additional production and mixing touches to some of my songs and he hit it out of the park on each one. He took the time to listen to my notes on each revision and made the necessary changes. I highly recommend Zach!
