Singer-songwriter-producer Zack Hagan has been writing music & performing since 1992, most recently in New York City with trip-hop band Organum (keys, 1997-1999) and indie rock band Motico (bass, 2003-2006). Throughout years of playing out, the prolific artist has produced over a hundred original songs. He is a skilled player of the Guitar, Bass, Piano, and Accordion who produces all of his own material. He has a background in sound engineering as well, having earned a degree in Music from SUNY Purchase followed by years working as a studio engineer & running live front of house in venues throughout New York City.
Since embarking on a solo career in 2006, Zack Hagan has composed the score to adult film "Porno Jim’s Hookin’ Up" & traveled to Rwanda as sound mixer for a documentary on Engineers Without Borders, where he recorded local choir music. Both projects inspired albums released this year on indie label roc-elle records. Zack recently performed his solo act in Manhattan at Reality Sandwich's Evolver Illuminations event & at The Annex; at the Queens Museum of Art (Burning Man Decompression 2007); w/ live band 1050 at Lost & Found in Greenpoint; as well as both full band and DJ sets at the Camp Bisco 7 festival at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY.
2008 marks a banner year for Zack Hagan as he releases three solo albums: "Rhapsody @ Trash Mansion" (dance songs inspired by on-screen sex), "The Muramba Sessions" (cathartic and hypnotic remixes of a Rwandan mass), and his self-titled solo folktronica album. "Zack Hagan" is a journey through love, loss, nature, and New York that demonstrates the convergence of the artist’s acoustic and electronic oeuvres. The album showcases his singing, playing & writing talents as well as his ability to make the most disparate themes danceable.
