Def1Live Recording Artist Zach Mitchell
Tell us about yourself and your music?
I moved from Missouri to Cali to pursue acting at the age of 9. Not long after we moved, I booked my first national commercial and then later went on to book a bunch of roles on all sorts of shows from “Girl Meets World” to “Modern Family.” While this was going on, I knew music was my true passion. It was the only thing I do constantly and repeatedly everyday and night. I started producing, writing, and recording all my music when I was like 11 and it’s been up from there. The music says more than I need to.
How would you describe your sound?
My music sounds like Michael Jackson and Kanye West met Drake and they all decided to make the best song they could possibly make together.
Talk about the experience making your single?
It was so crazy. I was so focused on the product coming out good for my fans that I forgot to enjoy the process, really. Definitely one of the greatest moments of my life though. Shout out to Shavoni at Def1Live for making that happen.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
I’m working on getting back into my acting, actually. I figured I’d dibble and dab for a little bit just to stay active. Other than that, I’m always working on music. A bunch of music is coming sooner than you think. I have a few shows lined up in the summer also. Plus I’m working on throwing my own something that’s never been done on a new artist. Wait on it.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
The dancers and the fans. I’m still working on growing my base but I’ve started to see very clearly who’s going to be here. I see y’all and I love y’all already. The dancers are smashing everything I put out and it drives me crazy. That’s the part that gets artists hooked. So as long as they’re jumping, I’m pumpin.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s)?
I would love to get on something with Sevyn Streeter. I feel like she would really push me cause her vocals are great. I want features from everybody though, honestly. I just live and breathe music. There is no box, so you tell me an artist and I’ll do something hot with them if the fans need that.
Name something random that people do not know about you?
I’m really a nerd. I’m super into amine and super heroes and all that good stuff. I try to make sure that energy is felt in my music, like you can do anything.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
Don’t underestimate people when it comes to music.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Hit Songs. Being grateful for simply being alive. Expect love.
