Zachary James Watkins


Zachary James Watkins builds clouds of dense harmonic tones and cuts through them with transcendent electric guitar melodies. The deep vibrations he creates through layering and expanding harmonies leave the room resonating with energy. He is an Oakland-based sound artist with degrees in composition from Cornish College of the Arts and Mills College, and is one-half of the ecstatic duo Black Spirituals. He has shared bills with Earth, the Sun Ra Arkestra, and many others, and releases music on the labels Important Records, Cassauna, Touch, The Tapeworm, Confront, Land & Sea and Sige.
