Zach Kleisinger

ZachK.jpg

Zach Kleisinger brings you new music wrapped in a nostalgic, old soul. His troubadour tales, gravelly vocals, and meandering guitar capture the folk-fused blues of Dylan, the earnest optimism of Jack Johnson, and the sonic style of Springsteen. A 20 year-old singer-songwriter from Saskatchewan with an audacious wanderlust, Zach is Canada's modern-day response to the reminiscent, rose-tinted sound of days gone by.

Since attending his first concert as a child (Leonard Cohen) in his home province of Saskatchewan, Zach has been addicted to making good music and telling great stories. He picked up the guitar at age 10, and started writing what he describes as "shitty little country tunes". By the age of 18, Zach took out his walking shoes and journeyed across the country, playing street corners, bars, coffee shops, and venues - whoever would take in a determined, travelling troubadour. In September 2015, Zach landed in Victoria, B.C. to work with good friend Sam Weber, who helped produce 'Between Two Cities'.

These days, Zach can be found in Vancouver B.C. playing solo acoustic shows with his trusty Gibson J-45, or full band flings with his electric sensation 1965 Fender Jaguar. He was selected for Studio Records' Open Mic night finals in 2015, and was recently announced as a top four finalist in the 2016 Roxy Launch Project.

A poet at heart, Zach is proud to be a part of the modern Canadian soundscape, working with local bands, collectives, and producers to bring you the curious musings from a travelling Canadian on the road to everywhere.
