Mixing rock, pop, funk, and soul, Canadian-born Zack Borer, often recognized by his big hair, has been creating quite the buzz in New York City over the past year. Compared to Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews Band, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, the 27 year old has taken the traditional singer/songwriter sound and fused it with an explosive live band featuring some of New York City's most talented musicians. Highlights from 2009 include side stage performances at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach for Dave Matthews Band and Jason Mraz, and being named a Top 5 finalist in the MTV VMA’s “Best Breakout Artist in NYC” competition. zAck also has a desire to use his music for good and in 2009 became an official Lifebeat “Hearts & Voices” artist performing for HIV-positive patients all over the city. In addition, Zack took part in the global awareness campaign, “Movember”, himself growing a moustache, donating proceeds from his shows, and generating awareness for men’s health during the month of November. Zack is currently writing and recording his new album, due out in early 2010, and is receiving amazing feedback on his new material to packed houses. "My songs are being taken to an entirely new level with my band. It's amazing to see their interpretation of the tunes, and is adding tremendous depth and musicianship to very personal experiences of mine."
