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.

Looper and multi-instrumentalist Zach Deputy speaks with KVNF's Ali Lightfoot about his hard-to-classify sound,  his early experiences as a musician and how he started looping. 

One of the pre-eminent practitioners of “live looping”, Zach Deputy’s one-man show of "Island-infused, Drum 'n' Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul" has the energy and sound of a 6-piece band. Ensconced behind an array of microphones and technology, Zach and his nylon stringed guitar weave 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 is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter based in Savannah, GA and best known for his live looping shows. He describes his style as "island-infused drum n' bass gospel ninja soul."   Ali Lightfoot interviewed Zach at the 2014 Telluride Blues and Brews Fest.
