Zach Whitney / Bio

Howdy Y'all!! ...I'm back in Ohio after 12 years in Texas... Hillbilly music, truck drivin' jams, honky tonk songs, songs about whiskey, women and weed... that's what I play... real deal country music... not what's coming outta Nashville... I grew up in rural Ohio near corn fields... but I lived in the woods... Music was everywhere... crickets chirppin', fiddles fiddlin', speakers thumpin', and guitars pickin'... John Prine & Johnny Cash... Bob Dylan & Jerry Jeff Walker... the Beatles, the Stones, & the Boss... John Cougar... Jimmy Buffett... both Woody & Arlo Guthrie... Willie, Waylon and a whole lot more... I finally taught myself how to pick a guitar... I couldn't remember anybody else's words so I just started making up my own songs... living my life... and making it rhyme... I would play the songs I made up for friends... and family... at the college bars and pizza parlors... I played at the laundromat... a street corner... a park bench... I played at pool halls & beer joints...shit!...any old where I could...wherever they'd listen... and lots of places where they couldn't 've cared less... I found my way south... to Texas... Austin... self proclaimed "live music capital of the world"... "center of the known universe"... it was home and a musical incubator... I emerged... not without scars... but stronger and keener and better off for having danced with the devil in Texas... it was a fine match... The music I make up has been described as the "perfect remedy for the town drunk & college professors... hookers & housewives... and just about anybody in between"... If you like what you hear... Come on out to one of my shows... Better yet... Hire me... If you've read this far you realize I'll play just about anywhere you want... and I come pretty cheap... Drop me a line sometime... Don't be a stranger... I'd love to shoot the breeze with you... and maybe even let you buy me a beer...
