"Satin pants, shaggy hair and memorable riffs...with born rock star Zachary James at the helm the buzz about the band is almost as strong as the buzz in the audience.” -VC Reporter
Young rocker Zachary James, with his born-to-be-a-frontman, lanky, long-haired look, presents a fresh spin on classic rock ‘n’ roll, both sonically and visually. Towering from the stage at 6’7” (topping out quintessential spindly singer Joey Ramone by over an inch), James turns heads with his infectious good time rock ’n’ roll & his striking looks.
“While on a recent tour with Far East Movement and Lil’ Wayne, James was affectionately nicknamed ‘That ‘70s Show’, due to his retro-rocker image. But the inspiration extends further than just the physical. There is a kinship to the era, body mind and soul.” -Guitar World Magazine
Now just 23, James has been hell-bent on a rock revival for nearly a decade. At the tender age of 15, James collaborated with Grammy-award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, No Doubt, Monster Magnet, Sublime, Porno for Pyros). He released his first 7” vinyl single “Can’t Stop Drinkin’ ‘Bout You” before he graduated high school on acclaimed Gearhead Records. The label—responsible for launching the careers of The Hives & The Donnas, and home to rock royalty New Bomb Turks & The Hellacopters—also released James’ first full-length album,Thunderboys…are GO!.
"Classic rock-sounding songs….new and improved for the new millennium." -VC Star
Later that year, James independently released the full-length album All Seeing Eyes, with critics hailing it as an “inspired and masterful production.”
“[With All Seeing Eyes], James clearly has a heart-on for the ’70s, but what sets the band apart, are the unexpected nods to early blues along with liberal use of piano, sweet harmonies and soulful backing vocals that are folded into shiny pre-punk glam.” -VC Reporter
James went on to form his current solo project, Zachary James & The All Seeing Eyes, and is finalizing a new full length album inspired by James’ interstellar affection for cosmic rock ‘n’ roll. Addressing themes of space, specters and the supernatural with a playful synth-infused glam-rock twist, the album showcases James’ songwriting prowess. For this forthcoming release, Zachary James worked at renowned Henson Studios in Los Angeles alongside Kevin Mills (Michael Bublé, Tom Morello, Céline Dion, No Doubt, Bruce Springsteen, Velvet Revolver, Gwen Stefani).
Zachary James’ live show has earned him the reputation as an artist to watch. He has played alongside rock artists such as Prima Donna, Electric Eel Shock, GitoGito Hustler, Emily’s Army, Lord of Altamont, The Joneses, The Fucking Wrath and River City Rebels. He is endorsed by Fender, Orange & Homebrew Electronics.
