Todays Artist Discovery is firmly focused on Denver (Colorado, US) based artist, Zach Maxwell!
The American singer songwriter fuses together elements of Electro, Pop & Soul to create a strong and solid sound full of catchy melodies, grooving instrumentation and well crafted vocal hooks.
Aside from writing and performing his music, the Colorado based musician also produces his own tracks - matching his songwriting visions with equally impressive production skills...
Having been releasing music consistently since 2018 and become a regular on the Denver music scene, this year saw an exciting new chapter in the up and coming performers musical journey with the release of his latest EP 'Kill The Kingdom' on 10th April 2020.
The four track release is a thoroughly satisfying listen for any synth driven music lovers out there - well dynamically and structurally layered, with an electrifying hopeful heartbeat pulsating through it's core.
Set to the backdrop of enjoyably upbeat and dancey instrumentation, Zach touches on some important and very important lyrical topics - describing it as"my way of alchemizing my anger and disillusionment of us all living under the shadow of our broken Patriarchal system”.
“I called upon both my own dark experiences of growing up with the patriarchal figures in my childhood, as well as my frustration and sadness at the state of affairs in America and the world today. The idea of this EP was born on the day my partner had a miscarriage, and 21 white men in Alabama simultaneously passed the strictest abortion law this country has seen since Roe. V. Wade. I had to channel my sadness and anger somewhere, and 'Kill the Kingdom' is what came out.”
Music, of course, is a universally understood language and can be a very powerful thing indeed - providing a reminder of our best life memories, or giving us hope during our darkest days.
Whilst inspired by a terribly sad moment, Zach hopes this EP will act as a call for action for anybody looking to create a better future - moving forward channelling his positive message for reform and change, for a better world.
The future looks very exciting for this up and coming singer songwriter - who already shows such existing talent and commercial potential with his skilful songwriting, energetically dedicated live performances and high quality production values. We can't wait to see more!
