Supporting Acts: Brown Shoe, Hank and Cupcakes Zak Waters
LA native Zak Waters is a young, multi-talented singer/songwriter and producer who has his biggest song out to date in the UK (as of September) with DJ giant 'Madeon' called "The City." "The City" hit #1 on Hype Machine within 3 days of its release. MtvBuzzworthy.com wrote, "The L.A. musician's new jams sound like Foster the People getting pumped with Maroon 5, all high-energy Saturday-night synths and soulful, Adam Levine-y vocals." Waters' first taste of success came in 2010 as a member of pop/rock group 'Blueskyreality.' The band opened for Third Eye Blind on multiple legs of their tour. As a kid, Zak was very into R&B music. Some of his favorite childhood singers include Al Green, Musiq Soul Child, James Brown, among other R&B legends that resonate clearly through his vocals, so it comes as no surprise that this little Italian man ended up with a sultry, diverse vocal ability. Zak just released a remix alongside Pharrell & Benny Benassi for the newest Adam Lambert re-release, 'Trespassing', which debuted #1 on Billboard Top 200 Charts this year. Waters played 7 showcases at this year's SXSW and has been working diligently to promote his newest single, "Skinny Dipping in the Deep End," which continues to gain attention and buzz from many top blogs. Be on the lookout for his next single release, "Runnin Around" releasing Nov.13th. Between his unconventional performance style, Prince-like dance moves, and sweet, soulful harmonies will surely take the music world by storm.
