Album Notes
zach|ziskin defines modern pop with a fresh sound that wraps instantly memorable melodies in concise, hook-laden songs. The South Florida native's retro-style songwriting and rich, textured sound are steeped in classic pop sensibility, echoing the past but with a modern edge that draws from a wide range of influences including Jeff Buckley, Jellyfish, The Beatles, Coldplay and U2, among others.

zach, who studied at the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, was named by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel as one of the top five local artists in 2002. Songs from his debut CD, real as the memory quickly ignited interest from radio stations, internet sites and music fans from around the world. Requests from radio stations in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the U.K., Australia and right here in the USA have been pouring in since the album's release in late fall 2002. The album's first single, falling to pieces, has received glowing reviews by critics, as well as fellow musicians who voted the song number one on Compo-10 Internet Radio. The song was also recently selected from more than 3,000 entries to be included on Fender Records' compilation CD, OP Emerging, due to be released in Spring 2004 with distribution through Rhino/Warner. In addition, after being voted number one by fans of, falling to pieces is also included on Make A Star's nationally distributed compilation CD.


to write a review


Woah Zach!
Couldn't wait for my CD to arrive after hearing the previews here on CD Baby.
I still can't believe that Zach's music seems to be under-appreciated.
The Album is just great from its first to its last song and the moods vary - as other reviewer mentioned - from happiness to sad/depressing songs, underlined by great melodies sure to blow you away.
This Album is set to repeat in my player for weeks now.
Especially enjoyed the songs Figurine and gravity.

Well, buy it and support this great Artist!


Great popster a la Tommy KEENE/Adam SCHMITT
This CD brings to mind the best of the two afore-mentioned power pop singers-songwriters. I really like the melancholy feel that alternates with more cheerful passages.


tunes that linger long in the memory
I can't believe no one has reviewed this masterpiece...!!!!..

In an era full of talentless and tuneless wannabes it is refreshing to hear an artist who is happy to let the music do the talking...

Zach has a fantastic voice which runs the whole gamut of shades and emotions. The lyrics are thought provoking and personal...I would say though the most striking thing about Zachs music is his song construction, imaginative and has a superb flow to it.

Now to the songs themselves, all are great but I would say without a doubt the best song I have heard for years is GRAVITY.

This song should be played to all prospective actors, reality show nonentities, et al who want to puruse a music career, anyone not left a gibbering wreck after hearing that song has my permission to continue releasing the tripe that they do.

This is a superb CD and I recommend it to anyone who loves genuine supremely crafted modern rock music....Nice one!!!
