INTERVIEW: Zac Burrell

What inspired you to pursue music?

I had played music my entire life, and doing karaoke with family, friends, and stuff like that, but it wasn’t until I was 16yrs old, when I performed in front of my high school during a talent show. The way the students reacted and the way I felt doing it made me want to start taking music more seriously, and turning it into a career path.

How would you describe your musical style?

A unique blend of Country/Pop, with R&B/Blues

What artists do you look up to right now?

Most definitely George Strait, Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, and one of my all time favorites Prince.

What would you say is your most braggable moment?

One of my most braggable moments would probably bet getting to hangout on the tour bus, and open up for Old Dominion before they got as big as they are today!

What has been the greatest lesson you have learned from a mistake?

When I was first starting out as a country artist with my first EP, I had one of my very close partners leave unexpectedly from the project, which they were like 75% of all operations so it was a HUGE setback. I ended up getting super depressed and thought my career was over before it had even begun, which led me to stop working on music for about 6 months.. I Learned that no matter where your career is at, whether you’ve made it or not, NEVER stop working, always strive to be a better you, because I can never get those 6 months back, but since I started working again, I’m in a better position then I ever thought I’d be!

Why do you think social media is so important for artists today?

Social media is important because it gives the artist a platform to be able to get their material out to their fans and the public! If you can gain enough traction organically, not only are you getting free advertising, but you’re also opening the door to possible opportunities with other companies and labels you would never see without a social media presence.

How has this whole music career experience been?

It honestly is a blessing to be able to make a career out of what I love and am passionate about, however I would be lying if I said it was easy, actually it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.. But knowing that I get to wake up doing what I love is what keeps me motivated, and that’s all I’ll ever need.
