Zach was excellent to work with! He immediately understood my vision and executed it effortlessly. He’s amazingly talented. Definitely looking forward to working with him again.
Zach is one of my favorite vocalists I've had the privilege of working with here on SB! Sounds a lot like Drew Taggart of the Chainsmokers to me in the particular key we used which was awesome
Easy to communicate with and a serious beast on vocals!!!
Great, friendly vocalist that was a breeze to work with. Sent plenty of takes and was very accommodating. Will definitely work with Zach again in the future. He's a pro.
Zach is awesome. Super talented. This was my second project with him and it ended up being more work than we originally anticipated in our collaboration. He was inspired, patient and diligent in making some great melodies! Rock on.
Zach never disappoints, another top notch quality vocal!
Great vocals and songwriting. 10/10
Loved working again with Zach, completely killed it on this one!
It was a great pleasure to work with such a talented singer like Zach. His vocal performance of my song perfectly fitted into the instrumental I produced. Zach prepared professional vocal tracks and sang great backing vocals, harmonies and ad-lips, so working on their mix was very pleasant. In addition, Zach is a very nice guy. I heartily recommend and hope for future cooperation !

Awesome guy to work with, even nailed a korean K-Pop song!
Zach is a professional! Amazing voice and topline maker!
What is there to really say? Zach is beyond talented and put the time and energy into the song like he was working with JT. Just an incredible experience through and through- couldn't ask for more. He's going places.
Zach is a great go to guy for melodies - his taste is sophisticated yet his melodies feel relevant and catchy.
Great songwriter and vocalist. Timely and professional.
Very well done!
This is my second project with Zach and everything is perfect again. He's very polite, quick to respond and very professional. Recommending to everyone who looks for a quality work!
What can I say? Zach was awesome. Turned a project around in not only a quick amount of time, but can tell he really spent the time to navigate the message of the song to create something amazing. Can’t wait for part 2 of the project- tremendous dude.
Zach was very responsive, polite and quick to work on my request. Really great quality, did everything perfectly. 10/10!
Zach is a really talented man in terms of topline projects that we gave him. He has a lot of fresh ideas that are always great. Aside from that, he also submit his works ahead of time without compromising the quality of the project.
Zach just finished and extremely impressive quartet piece - this guy understands music and what can make a piece compelling.
Zach was more than professional, he was quick, mindful, and caught onto the job quick. Literally 2 hours into the job he was sending me 3-5 melody styles, soon after that helped with the verse and chorus. Zachs one of the most talented songwriters I’ve ever worked with and gives you much more than you pay for
Zach is a terrific melodist and has strong musical insights.
Zach is a melodic monster that can move from genre-to-genre with apparent ease. I hope to work with him again soon. John
Zach is one bad cat.
I plan on trying to recruit him to another project very soon. John
Zach is current yet has a strong sense of melody. He can make your track better. John
Zach is terrific. I served up one pitch and he hit it out of the park. Sorry about the cliche but it works...
Great work as always!
Pleasure working with Zach! Professional!
I asked Zach a ton of questions, he always got back to me with very detailed answers. I would 10/10 recommend you hire this person! Once we landed on a deal he MORE than delivered some quality material!!!! WOW
good job well done
like his vocal
Zach is amazing and talented singer.
He delivers great work within very short time.
It was a pleasure to work with you. Thanks again!
Zach has become one of our favorite collaborators over the last year! He brings such a great energy to anything he works on! He has a great ear for melody, and arrangement. His writing style is very modern, and his keyboard chops are sick! Out side of music Zach is a great fella! and has a great energy! If you want a great product, hire Zach!
Zach is INCREDIBLE to work with on all things musical. Him and I have worked together for the past few years on various projects. He is great with all his vocals and is an amazing songwriter too. I am sure everyone else will get to experience his magic when they get to collaborate! CHEERS
