Zac Williams on SoundBetter

I produce, sing and write my own music. I've released 6 EP's and 2 albums which I've recorded and mixed myself in my home studio in Copenhagen, Denmark. Being a musician myself and having travelled to the US a bunch of times I've worked with Andrew Gouche, Morris Hayes, Gorden Campbell, Mono Neon and Wayne Linsey. I also produce for other artists.

Zac Williams established himself as an accomplished musician and performer during his late teens and early 20’s. Having worked as a sideman for Danish artists such as Julias Moon, Burhan G, Noah, Cisilia and Jørgen Klubien, Zac started to make a name for himself within the Danish music industry by being a great guitar- and bass player.

Inspired by Prince and Stevie Wonder, Zac is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter and singer. He grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark where he first started to sing in The Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir before forming his first blues/rock trio at the age of 12.

Zac released his first EP from his bedroom in 2015 under the name of “ZacMan Music”. His first EP distributed by a label - Lifted House/disco:wax - was in 2018. The EP was called “I’m Ready” and was a collaborative project stairing some of Zac’s closest friends at the time. The song “Dynamite” has received over 80.000 streams since then.

His new and first full length-album “Inside Out” is an acoustic album which has been written and recorded by Zac entirely within a month. There’s a great deal of guitar work and heavy harmonies are presented within the songs which is due to Zac’s love for Brazilian music and artists such as Djavan and Ivan Lins. The album was distributed digitally on 9th December, 2020.
