Up-and-Coming Artist: Zac Shober

Zac Shober

A few words from Zac:

I started playing music when I was 10 years old. I started with drums, then guitar and a few other instruments, with guitar being my main instrument. I started singing at 14 and writing songs at 15. My first band was with a group of friends. We were a post rock instrumental band called, Samaria and we were together for two years playing local bay area shows. My second band, Relentless Pursuit, was together for 6 months and we traveled across country. I’ve written about 50 songs in the last two years and have played my originals locally in the East Bay area. The genres I like are indie, folk, rock, reggae, rap, and blues. Just about everything! My early influences are John Mayer, Copeland, Def Cab for Cutie, Bob Marley & Bon Iver. I am currently listening to Tiger’s Jaw, This Wild Life, Ray LaMontagne, Purity Ring and Matt Corby.

The two songs I am featuring are ‘Show Me Love’ and ‘Life and Journey’. I wrote ‘Show Me Love’ in 2013, inspired by wanting to know what Real Love looks like. I wrote ‘Life and Journey’, also in 2013, which is about living day to day life.
