Zach Tate isn't your run-of-the-mill cowboy. While his lyrics and twangy vocals definitely give his music a country feel, the backing tunes are heavily influenced by the Southern strain of classic rock. Although Tate isn't even from the South, his music makes us glad that he finally made his way here.
Earlier this week, Rocks Off drove down to Coffee Oasis in Clear Lake to better get to know a (relatively) new face, and we returned home with three CDs, the recently released single "Cowgirl," two guitar picks and a few Zach Tate Band postcards. Cool, much? We sure think so.
Before moving to Clear Lake, Tate lived in Los Angeles for 12 years. And before that, he lived in Windsor, Ontario, just south of Detroit. He moved to California after getting divorced, at which time he bought a $200 van and started driving West.
