Nearly seven years ago, Zach picked me up for our first date, Feb 6th, 2008. We went to City Tavern and over a few cocktails talked about art, music, and life. While I forget most dates/ historical factoids/ movies I watched yesterday/etc, I remember that first night like it was yesterday. I remember sharing our art with each other; some paintings I was working on, and the songs he had been creating. I was blown away by our conversation, by the way he listened and seemed genuinely interested. It was so refreshing.
Over the past seven years Zach's been by my side, he's been my number one supporter; he's believed in me, he's ever-so-patiently critiqued the hundreds of paintings I've sat in front of him , he's listened to me whine when I've had creativity-block. He's helped me set up at festivals, move studios, take pieces to galleries, and build my website. Most importantly, he's loved me when I needed it most, calmed me when I'm frustrated, and taught me to trust. He's been the best teammate I could have ever hoped for and I love him more each day.
While we've been busy with school, work, getting married, buying and selling a home in NC, moving to Iowa, and life, Zach managed to finish the album he started over nine years ago! I am SOOOOOO proud of him! Videogame Summer was released on my 30th birthday and I am so happy I got to be by his side to celebrate!
We would like to thank all of you who've already shown your love and support by purchasing and listening to Zach's CD. You guys rock!
