Out of the Water (Deputy Records, 2008), Zach Deputy’s much anticipated studio album, will be released on June 24th. After years of selling and giving away thousands live recordings, Zach Deputy and his musical partner Paul Kearns are sharing this studio recording with fans. This album represents one of the many musical facets of Zach Deputy. Fans know that Zach and Paul perform as a duo, with Zach creating next generation live looping—accompanied by Kearns on percussion—to create a full band sound. Out of the Water, on the other hand, features a full compliment of some of the American South’s top musicians.Despite the accomplished sidemen available to him, Zach Deputy still plays all of the instruments on some tracks, and is credited with vocals, acoustic, electric, slide and treated guitars, bass, keyboards, synths, drums, percussion and marimba on the recording, in additional to writing all of the words and music. He also lent a hand in the production, from engineering to mixing, and is the co-producer of the album. Moving seamlessly from sultry R&B to soulful funk to love ballads, Out of the Water offers 12 tracks that capture Zach Deputy’s diverse musical and cultural influences.
The tropical sounds of Calypso and dancehall rhythms coexist happily with hip hop and rock beats, all forming a foundation for the dexterous guitar work and multiple octave vocal stylings of this talented young artist. Zach Deputy will be touring the Eastern U.S. non-stop in support of the new release. Out of the Water will be available online at the usual sources like iTunes, at select retailers, and at shows.
