Zac Taylor Show May 27th @ Rockwood

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

Like many hired musicians who also write their own songs, sometimes I feel like a deadbeat dad. However, after months of touring with songs I’m a proud stepfather to, I’m excited to finally show some love to my own children again. Hey there, “Spend the Night with Hannah”! Why hello, “The Getaway”! It’s me! Daddy! You have all grown so much I can …

Make Friends/Don’t Be a D*ck

In Uncategorized by zadminLeave a Comment

I was recently invited to be a panelist at a Pro Music Seminar called ‘Careerealism’ at my alma mater, Berklee College of Music, but sadly I had to decline because I’ll be on the road with American Authors throughout the spring. But during that moment when I explored the possibility of popping up to Boston for the event, the wheels …

Champagne in Chicago, Bruins in Boston

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

When you close out one year playing Times Square on New Year’s Eve, you might think there’s nowhere to go but down for any other year end celebration. You’re probably right, but American Authors came pretty damn close. Chi-Town Rising is the Windy City’s version of the Times Square ball drop, and we performed just before the band Chicago at the …

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

Welcome to the new and improved ZTV! You’ll notice a slick interface, fresh artwork, and the absence of the MySpace icon (I forgot my password years ago). When I made my first website back in college, I was a fresh-faced, debt-free independent singer-songwriter in Boston, full of piss and vinegar, and ready to take the world by storm! After a …

Alaskan Authors

We played a show with our homeboys KONGOS in Alaska in July, and also got up close and personal with some glaciers, elk, moose, and reindeer. My dad did not approve of Dave ‘flipping the bird’ in this one.

Going Big on TV

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

I have always loved late night TV shows. I used to stay up and watch Conan until 1:30AM when I was 11 years old and be sleepy the rest of the day and get fussed at by my teachers. Well guess what, Mrs. Coley– I’m ON THOSE SHOWS NOW! SO TAKE THAT HISTORY PROJECT AND SHOVE IT! Sorry for that. …

Ryan Adams v. Deadmau5

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

“Oh My Sweet Carolina” is one of my favorite songs. Ever. As Ryan Adams strapped on his acoustic guitar in the middle of an amazing set at Governor’s Ball this past Saturday, my heart leapt in anticipation of hearing this gem, or perhaps another of my more mellow favorites from his catalogue. But there was a distracting pulse bleeding from …

SOUTH AFRICAN SHARK ATTACK

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

I am packing up my bags in an art deco style flat I rented for $50 per night in Green Market Square, which is more or less the Union Square of Capetown. Right outside my window, people come from all over the country to set up shop and offer wares of original artwork, biltong (amazing jerky-like meat snack), hand-carved elephant …
