A 2012 Jersey Acoustic Music Award Winner for Best Vocalist, Zak Smith’s music is an incorporation of traditional and gospel influenced alternative and americana sound. He has been influenced primarily by years of listening to artists like Neil Young, the Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen. “He’s got an amazing ability to incorporate the sounds of alternative rock with Americana to form his own signature sound,” wrote Gary Wein, author of Are You Listening? The Top 100 Albums of 2001-2010 by New Jersey Artists.
He has toured both internationally and throughout the east coast, filmed music videos, and been nationally recognized for his latest album, The Precambrian Age.
