Zach Knight is a 26-year-old pop/r&b singer, songwriter, and producer that hails from the northwestern region of Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Erie, always surrounded by music, Zach began singing before he entered the first grade. His vocal style is heavily influenced by Nate Cole (Plus One) and Justin Timberlake (*Nsync), to more current artists such as Nick Jonas, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber.
In June 2011, Zach decided to take on his music with a more serious approach. He created a Facebook music page and began uploading videos to his newly formed YouTube account. It wasn't long before he had reached over 1.3 million collective views on YouTube as well as tens of thousands of plays on other various social media platforms. He released his first single “Out Of This World” on July 19, 2012 which received thousands of views. He also released his holiday single “Christmas Without You,” in December of that year, which preceded its official music video release that debuted in December of the following year.
In July 2013, Zach released his first EP, “Out Of This World” on iTunes and Spotify, receiving an outstanding response in both views and sales. In August of 2013, the self-titled track from the EP was recognized by the American retailer, Abercrombie & Fitch, who requested the song to be played on their in-store playlist heard internationally. Through this occurrence, Zach signed a music licensing deal with Mood Media Corporation/DMX; an international provider of music to retail stores, restaurants and cruise ships, as well as television and movie producers alike.
Zach began producing music for himself in other artists in late 2015. In July of 2017, Zach produced music for up-and-coming rap/hip hop artist TayJer featuring Grammy winning and multi-platinum selling artist, Bizzy Bone from the renowned American hip hop group, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
Zach has performed in his local region, gaining a rather firm following for being an unsigned artist. He is currently busy in the studio writing and recording new songs for his 2018 debut release. In the meantime, Zach seeks to be more than just another “pop singer.” Zach Knight is a driven musical artist who has the heart and passion to inspire all of his fans and followers through his music.
