After coming onto the music scene roughly one year ago, Zach Heckendorf is now set to release his debut album, The Cool Down. The album, produced by Brett Dennen, allowed Zach to work with some fantastic musicians. “Working with Brett, Zac, Pete, and Dave felt as comfortable as I could have asked for, and the final product is something that I am very proud of. I am beyond lucky to have worked with such intelligent musicians on my debut. I think this album is a beautiful first step to becoming the musician I want to be.”
The fact that Zach Heckendorf is only eighteen, and will graduate from Cherry Creek High School this week, is almost baffling. Influenced by his father, Zach began playing the guitar at a young age and soon began experimenting with his own sound and style. With a unique, soulful voice and masterful guitar playing to match, Zach is an exciting young talent with a bright future.
He released a demo in 2010 that created a buzz around Denver. Following the release of the demo, Zach opened for John Butler Trio, played to thousands at Film on the Rocks and performed in KBCOs Studio C.
The CD Release party for The Cool Down will take place this Saturday evening at The Bluebird Theatre. Details below. If you’d like to win tickets to the show, we have a pair to giveaway, click here for more info.
