Zach Deputy
Lea Petmezas

One of the pre-eminent practitioners of 'live-looping', Zach Deputy’s one-man show weaves a tapestry of instrumentation and voices in an ever-evolving, improvised arrangement that is ultimately based on a composition but allowed to breathe with the audience.

Zach Deputy’s show transforms clubs and open fields alike into sweaty dance parties for fans of R&B, soul, jam, Caribbean music and electronica.

Zach performed at Avalanche Dairy outside Paonia, Colorado for an adoring audience of goats.
