Zac Wilkerson’s songwriting and performance style is Roots Rock with heavy Soul, Country and Folk influences.
Based out of Amarillo, Texas, the Vocalist/Songwriter stumbled into a career in music after winning The Blue Light Live Singer Songwriter contest in 2011, earning himself a set at Larry Joe Taylor's Texas Music Festival in Stephenville, TX. He has since gained a loyal following in the Texas Panhandle and North Texas finding favor in the thriving rock and country scenes in Amarillo, Lubbock and Fort Worth.
Wilkerson cut his musical teeth in a country church where he started singing at 4. At a young age, he discovered his parents' country, motown, rock, and folk records, creating a musical foundation with as much variety as passion. By 12 he played several instruments, including piano and guitar, which led to songwriting that same year. The musical voice that has evolved since is a fresh take on Rock, Soul, and Americana evoking, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Bonnie Raitt and Levon Helm.
