Doors 8:45 PM / Show 9:00 PM
Zach Williams comes from Georgia and his music comes from childhood bike rides down steep hills, the valleys of real tragedy, the rivers of hope pushing you on, sincere prayers, wind chimes on a back porch where grandfathers rock in silence, the back of cereal boxes on Saturday mornings, rust and shadows in an old barn, wet pavement after rain in the city, a string full of caught fish, the advice of generations before, the way love will surprise you in someone you've known for years, a bullheaded grip on lifelong friendship, and the offering of an open hand. Zach and the band's crowning achievement thus far is crafting a live show that is both approachable and yet coursing with adrenaline. You can dance to it too. It leaves you feeling like you have spent the evening hearing the stories of your close friends.
If you asked the 25 year-old singer-songwriter what kind of genre he plays, he’d reply with a simple response; “I just play music.”
And quite frankly, that’s the truth.
That question used to be easier for Hunter to answer. He used to just be a blues guitarist. However, at the age of 17, he began writing his own music and developing his own voice as a singer. After a few years of cutting his teeth in the Atlanta market and becoming a sold out headliner at famed venues such as Eddie’s Attic, Hunter found himself in Nashville recording his first full length effort, “Broken Heart’s & Melodies” (produced by Dana C. Lamb with John Bass) combined folk songwriting sensibilities with blues guitar playing and hints of pop and all by his 21st birthday.
The independent release proved to be a pivotal stepping stone, catching the attention of Atlanta-based producer Dan Hannon (Aaron Shust, Manchester Orchestra) and nationally recognized, Grammy-Nominated Producer “Mama” Jan Smith (Usher, Justin Bieber, The Band Perry, and more). With Hunter continuing his development with Mama Jan, he continued to carve his place in the Atlanta songwriter scene becoming a staple at the city’s songwriting hubs. With a new EP in the works, produced by both Hannon and Mama Jan, the story of Hunter Callahan’s music is just beginning.
