Zach Parkman is a singer/songwriter/guitarist living and working in the Washington D.C. area, but originally from the Texas gulf coast, a stones throw away from the fabled Brazos River. He has been writing and performing music since his teenage years, from garage punk and grunge inspired tirades to folksy, wandering troubadour ballads. In 2008 he teamed up with producer/musician J.P. Goggin to record his debut album, The Carpenter & The Chemist, and album of songs written over the last decade and showcasing Parkman's unique mixture of traditional and contemporary sounds. While spending time in Athens, OH he formed the blues-roots band Zach Parkman & The Damaged Goods with Brandon Ashcraft & Don Johnson of Grey Market (along with several other local musicians). The songs from The Part-Time Paladin album came out of this fruitful time from 2009-2011. In 2012 Zach recorded a solo album, Honorable Manhood (& Other Myths) and relocated to the Washington D.C. area. He gave himself the challenge of writing a song a week in 2013 and posted the results online (Youtube & Facebook). A new album is slated for 2014.
