Sutter Zachman

Sutter’s first release, “Back to Sleep,” achieved a welcoming radio debut in Ireland (RTÉ Radio 1 & BBC) and earned him an in-studio performance with Yahoo! Music back in 2014.

Wanting to try his hand at producing himself, he emerged from his bedroom in 2015 with “Fireworks!.” Relying on just a few instruments and sparse recording supplies, he set out to harness the intimacy of performing into a microphone, echoing the M.O. of one of his heroes, JJ Cale.

His upcoming release, Crude Magic, is further evidence of his capabilities as a producer and songwriter, reminding us that good production is sometimes laying off of perfection and laying into the performance.
