I made my way to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to hang out with shutterbug extraordinaire, Chiun Kai Shih of SMC Creative Inc. His subject? Zack Weber and his band. Zack is a laid back soul with a playful spirit who also happens to be tragically good looking, reminiscent of a cross between a young Johnny Depp and John Mayer.
Originally from St. Charles, MO, Zack set out at the ripe young age of 14 to pursue a solo career with the guidance of a local music producer. In the summer of 2004, Zack opened for Grammy award-winning acts Maroon 5 and John Mayer. He did four shows with Mayer on his "Heavier Things" tour.
Zack??™s melodic tunes and thought provoking lyrics showcase a refreshingly mature singer-songwriter and entertainer. With a profound influence of pop, rock and jazz it is hard to pinpoint exactly what genre he??™s playing in. Listening to his album, "Daydreams and Day Jobs,??? the tone and texture of his vocals, acoustic guitar and instrumentals evoke Ben Folds, Coldplay, John Mayer and even Michael Buble.
Now 19, Zack and his band mates, Theo, Chad, and Roy, reside in New York and continue to impact the New York music scene with live performances that leave audiences wanting more. This young artist??™s career is rising. . .definitely someone to watch.
Zack is rocking Buckler jeans, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Specialty sneakers in black leather and a Y-3 top for a hip yet colorfully sophisticated rocker look. Roy has on his Zara jeans, but looks great in Bucklers for the photo shoot. Chad is wearing Replay jeans.
Check out Zack’s music on his site and on MySpace.
