Singer-songwriter Zachary Scot Johnson captivates listeners with the lush emotional landscape of his acoustic fusion music. He blends blues and folk, alt-country and pop, and rock-n-roll, creating his signature sound, a distinctive musical flavor unlike any other. Yet it is absolutely accessible and there is nothing cloying or artificial here; only genuine emotions, real impact, heart-on-sleeve emotional honesty. All driven by remarkable talent.

Not an ounce of Johnsons spirit escapes being funneled into his music. He holds himself to high standards. He has recognized in the world of music that the greats are all those who felt music with every fiber of their being and paid music back by putting every part of themselves into the creation of more music. “People whose entire body and being go into a performance inspire me,” he says. “People who have the guts to go out there every night and lay it all out there for the audience to take…they influence me.”
