Zach Waters is a singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Forming the Zach Waters Band in 2016, the musician found his footing as a solo artist in blues-oriented spaces. By 2022, he’d switch to a hard rock sound, and simultaneously shorten the band’s name to ZWB to reflect a more collaborative approach. Amidst a slew of lineup changes, the trio has since kicked off the new year with their debut full-length album, Up & Running, on January 13th, and later this month will continue on a national tour.
I caught up with Waters to discuss his formative years, the concept behind Up & Running, the state of modern rock, and what he has gleaned on his journey thus far.
