Deering Banjo Artists
Front man on vocals, guitar and banjo for the three-time GRAMMY-winning multi-platinum Zac Brown Band, an American country music band based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Zac was given his mother's guitar at age 8, and he started taking lessons in classical guitar. He completed two years of lessons, but soon after developed a love for bluegrass music while playing with his father and brother on weekend visits.
Zac is a country singer, songwriter, and bandleader, one of the brightest stars in a generation of performers changing the paradigm of the country music business. He's also a record producer, record label head, and philanthropist set on making the world a better place for as many people as possible. With his winning combination of country, bluegrass, reggae, and Caribbean music, he appeals to country fans and jam band hippies, and could well cross over to lovers of world music and pop. He sold over 30,000 copies of the first two self-produced albums he made for his own Southern Ground label, and "Chicken Fried," the Zac Brown Band's first single to get national distribution, went platinum and he hasn't stopped since!
