Zach Deputy was raised in the South Carolina heat, all cooked up in his Puerto Rican, Cruzan and Irish heritage. The Calypso rhythms and folk songs of St. Croix competed with the R&B / soul of pioneers like James Brown and Ray Charles for space on the family stereo. As Deputy honed his craft, a unique hybrid of these influences emerged, ultimately creating the signature Zach Deputy sound. To bring this sound to the stage, the big, impossibly upbeat South Carolinian with the infectious smile puts on a solo show– enhanced by looping technology– that is essentially a one man dance party offering up what he calls “Island-infused, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” to the enthusiastic crowds of dancers who flock to clubs from coast-to-coast. Over 1000 shows in the past 4 years have made Zach Deputy one of the most in-demand performers on the grassroots festival circuit and a big hit on the national club circuit.
In April 2016, Zach released an album called Keep on Movin’ under the name Zach Deputy & the Hashtags. “Keep on Movin’ is a turn-around point in my career. All I expected was a jam session, with maybe a cool take or two, but to my astonishment in only two afternoons at the boat house, we produced an entire record and inspired the birth of a band.”
